What Has SEMA Done for You Lately?
SEMA has recently added a new search function to its website, one of many changes to come that are part of a continuous effort to ensure efficiency and provide the best online experience for its members.
“The new search function represents one small step in the ongoing changes to SEMA.org,” said Peter MacGillivray, vice president of communications and events at SEMA.
Additional changes planned for the SEMA website include easier log-in and password retrieval, the ability to personalize the website, and an area for professional networking.
With online voting being offered for the first time, SEMA is making it easier than ever for members to make their voices heard during the upcoming Board of Directors election.
“As owners, we must take the responsibility to participate in helping decide who will represent us in directing how SEMA’s resources are used,” said SEMA Chairman Jim Cozzie.

Don't underestimate the business importance of a good website. A clear, uncluttered web presence can mean the difference between a walk and a sale. But if customers can't find your site to begin with, you're simply leaving money on the table.
A version of SEMA model legislation to create a vehicle registration and titling classification for custom vehicles was approved by the Tennessee State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Phil Bredesen. The new law defines a custom-built car as a vehicle that is built for private use and is not constructed by a licensed manufacturer or remanufacturer. Under the law, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle it most closely resembles.
At the recently concluded SEMA National Education Conference, member attendees were treated to leadership and management insights as well as employee evaluation, retention and supervision techniques. Dedicated solely to education and learning, the annual event provides members with innovative ideas and super strategies direct from industry leaders.
