2017 SEMA Town Hall Series Concludes at Competition Specialties

SEMA’s final Town Hall of the 2017 series welcomed over 100 SEMA members and non-members at Competition Specialties Inc. in Auburn, WA. Attendees were greeted with facility tours, food and beverage, plus the chance to network with local industry leaders before taking part in an interactive discussion with SEMA’s Senior Vice President Bill Miller, and Board Chair-elect Tim Martin.

Bill, Tim, and other SEMA staff in attendance addressed questions submitted by the audience, covering a range of industry topics and concerns. The night’s discussion included the below main topics:

Bill spoke about the ongoing efforts to combat the EPA’s proposed motorsports regulations which will prohibit vehicles from being modified for racing and performance. Bill shared that the effort has been reintroduced at the beginning of a new congress and now more than ever is the perfect opportunity to let your congressman know where you stand on the issue by submitting a letter at SEMA.org/rpm.

Mike Spagnola, VP of the SEMA Garage, spoke about new resources the garage offers to help members through the E.O. application process, emissions lab, tech transfer and 3D scanning services. Get to know your SEMA Garage benefits and programs by visiting www.semagarage.com.
