SEMA member companies will connect with legislative officials during the 2018 SEMA Washington Rally on May 16 in Washington, D.C. The event is an opportunity for the automotive specialty equipment industry to educate Congressional representatives on issues such as the RPM Act, emerging automotive technologies, infrastructure spending, job creation, affordable health care and counterfeit products.
The SEMA Washington Rally, first held in 1996, features SEMA member companies meeting face-to-face with members of Congress on Capitol Hill. SEMA members are briefed by staff in advance of the meetings and connect with elected officials on issues that matter most to the $42 billion industry.
“One-on-one meetings with legislators is one of the most effective ways to impact lawmakers who are making decisions that affect SEMA member businesses,” said Daniel Ingber, SEMA chief corporate counsel. “The SEMA Washington Rally helps lawmakers hear from constituents and informs them about the issues that are most important to our industry.”
In addition to meetings with legislators, participating SEMA members will take part in an exclusive lunch on Capitol Hill, tours of iconic attractions in Washington, DC, and a major league baseball outing at the New York Yankees versus Washington Nationals game.
