SEMA SAN Strike Force

On April 5 and 6, the Association of California Car Clubs (ACCC) members gathered at the California Auto Museum in Sacramento for the group’s 27th Annual Spring Legislative Conference. Attendees learned about current legislative trends and opportunities from an array of guest speakers, including several of the state’s lawmakers and agency representatives.

While the SEMA Action Network (SAN) is pursuing greater automotive freedoms nationally in the U.S. and Canada, groups like the Association of California Car Clubs (ACCC) are complimenting these efforts at the state and local levels. For over 40 years, this volunteer organization has been comprised of regional representatives who serve the interests of its member clubs and individuals, currently numbering in the thousands statewide. Through this partnership, the SAN’s efforts have gained added horsepower on topics including vehicle emissions, legacy license plates and "specially constructed" vehicle laws. The ACCC’s continued commitment to organizing car enthusiasts in their state is greatly appreciated by us all. Thanks for fighting the good fight and here’s to another 40 years!
