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 Show Education will be made by March 2024. Selections for the SEMA Year-Round Virtual Education will be made on an on-going basis.
  • The vast majority of SEMA education speakers are industry subject-matter experts and are not compensated. If you require compensation, please note on the proposal submission form your speaker fee range for a one-hour session for consideration.
