DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (Aug. 15, 2013) — Following the elections of 2012, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) embarked on an "aggressive recruiting effort" to bring lawmakers into the trade group's State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus.
SEMA said its efforts have "brought an impressive number" of legislators into the caucus. It has recruited 129 new members thus far this year, adding to the group that comprises approximately 600 members from all 50 states.
Founded in 2005 and supported by SEMA, the caucus is designed as a non-partisan group of state legislators whose common thread, according to Diamond Bar-based SEMA, "is a love and appreciation for automobiles."
