|SEMA Town Hall Meetings provide members the chance to share the business challenges and opportunities they face.|
SEMA invites industry professionals to the next stop of its 2012 Town Hall tour in Brooklyn, Michigan, Friday May 18, from 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m. Local and prospective members will gather at the Michigan International Speedway in their Champion Club for an evening of networking with local industry leaders and SEMA staff. Tours will also be given starting at 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
SEMA's Town Hall Meeting initiative launched in 2011 to provide members with the opportunity to learn about the association's current programs and objectives while networking with automotive aftermarket professionals from the same geographic region. These personal interactions provide members the chance to share the business challenges and opportunities they face. They also give SEMA staff valuable feedback that will help identify current benefits to enhance members' business operations and better meet their needs.
“As a new SEMA member, my experience at the Town Hall Meeting in St. Charles [Illinois] was certainly without regret,” said Christine Giovingo of Mecum Auctions. “I found the topics discussed by the panel very informative. I was able to capture industry-related subjects worth discussing within the Mecum organization. Debra [Flicker] provided me with knowledge that will allow me to make an intelligent decision as to which SEMA committee to join. Lastly, what an honor it was listening to the legendary Vic Edelbrock tell his story and how he has impacted the industry for so many years.”
So far, SEMA has visited Scottsdale, Arizona; Forth Worth, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Tacoma, Washington; and St. Charles, Illinois, hosting successful small gatherings of members in those regions.
