SEMA Person of the Year Criteria
The SEMA Person of the Year Award has been established to honor a person for their outstanding contribution to the industry during the past twelve (12) months corresponding with the SEMA fiscal year, July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013. Achievements made following or prior to this time period are not to be taken into account as part of the awards process.
A candidate must meet all of the following requirements to be considered for the SEMA Person of the Year Award:
- The candidate must be from our industry and employed by a member company. SEMA staff or persons working contractually for SEMA are precluded from consideration as a Person of the Year candidate.
- The candidate should be nominated for his outstanding contribution to the industry during the past twelve (12) months corresponding with the SEMA fiscal year, July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
- An individual can win the award more than one (1) time provided that person qualifies for a second nomination; however, three (3) to five (5) years should elapse before an individual is nominated for a second time.
- A person should not be nominated for previous industry contributions (committee members are reminded that the SEMA Hall of Fame Award salutes veterans of the industry and their contributions of years past).
