PRI has been focused on big things and big changes for more than a year now, and against all odds have really made a huge push despite the global pandemic. One of the things their new leader Jamie Meyer has been incredibly vocal about is the need to change the membership opportunities within organizations like SEMA and PRI, and we can’t agree with him more on this front. There is no better way to reach people, and garner their support, than to include them in the organizations that support their hobbies and lifestyles. PRI has never been a membership based organization, but that is all changing. Now you CAN be a member of PRI and be an even bigger part of everything that it does. Yes, manufacturers and companies within the Performance side of the Aftermarket are welcome to join, and so are race teams! And this summer you’ll be able to become a member as an individual!
Here is the full press release from PRI. This is big news people! Read up.
Companies are invited to help support the motorsports industry by joining together under Performance Racing Industry’s landmark program.
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (April 12, 2021) – Racing and performance companies can now join the movement to build, promote and protect motorsports through the industry’s first-ever business membership program.
Performance Racing Industry (PRI), the producer of world-class trade events and media, has launched its all-new Business Membership designed to unite the industry and provide advocacy, support and resources to help motorsports professionals and enthusiasts alike succeed and prosper. Membership, which was first offered last month to PRI Trade Show exhibitors, is now available to all businesses throughout the racing community. A separate membership for individuals is set to launch in July.
“PRI Show exhibitors have seized the opportunity to join this groundbreaking membership program and create a uniform voice that speaks for the racing industry,” said PRI President Dr. Jamie Meyer. “Now we’re extending the opportunity to all motorsports companies to be a part of this powerful group and support PRI’s efforts to fight current and future challenges at the federal, state and local levels and create programs that benefit the motorsports community.”
