SEMA Board Elections Decided
SEMA’s voting members have spoken and the 2019-’20 SEMA Board of Directors is set. Voting concluded May 28, paving the way for a few changes to the SEMA Board.
James Lawrence of Power Automedia was elected chairman-elect of the SEMA Board of Directors. Lawrence fills the position held for the past two years by Tim Martin of Aftermarket Advisors. Martin will begin his term as chairman in July.
Melanie White of Hellwig Products and Kathryn Reinhardt of Pilot Automotive also were voted into director positions, while Chris Douglas of COMP Performance Group and Les Rudd of Bob Cook Sales were re-elected to serve another term.
