With a focus on providing automotive aftermarket professionals with content designed to improve their careers and businesses, the SEMA Virtual Education Program will help members enhance their professional development and include comprehensive presentations, insightful discussions and short videos that teach, inform, inspire and entertain.
The virtual and on-demand offerings provide members with the flexibility to participate remotely and at their convenience.
“We are excited to launch this new initiative that will make it easier than ever for members to participate in top-quality, industry-leading education,” said SEMA Senior Manager of Professional Development Gary Vigil. “We’ve heard from our members that education is a top priority for them, and the SEMA program brings the knowledge and information they need to advance their businesses.
"Introducing a year-round virtual element will make it possible for all members, from builders and engineers, to marketers and sales staff, to participate and prepare for greater success.”
More sessions will be announced throughout the year, and will be placed in tracks, such as professional development, government affairs or market research, to make it easy for members to identify offerings that may be of greatest interest to them. Stay tuned to SEMA eNews as new events are announced weekly.
