Selection Process
We receive many seminar proposals for the various education programs, so please understand that it is a difficult and highly selective process for our team of volunteers and staff to review and choose from among the many excellent submissions. As such, quality rather than quantity is always best when submitting proposals. Final selections for SEMA and PRI Show Education will be made by June 2021. Selections for the SEMA Year-Round Virtual Education will be made on an on-going basis. Note: Limit two (2) submissions per speaker.

For more details, contact SEMA's Senior Manager of Professional Development Gary Vigil at GaryV@sema.org, 909-978-6738.
