Automotive Media Professionals Join Together to Form South East Automotive Media Organization

Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from South East Automotive Media Organization

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. and ATLANTA, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Several automotive
 media professionals based in the Southeastern U.S. recently met to form a
 steering committee that will be responsible for creating the South East
 Automotive Media Organization (SEAMO).  The intent of the group is to provide
 networking and social opportunities for media and public relations personnel
 involved in the automotive industry, as well as acting as a collective voice
 to represent the region.
     Membership will be open to any members of the media who cover automotive
 topics, as well as the public/media relations personnel from the manufacturer,
 supplier and motorsports communities.  Although plans for regular meetings
 have not yet been announced, the intent is to rotate the locations between
 those metropolitan centers where the majority of the membership resides
 (Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte, Orlando, etc.).
 There are also plans to schedule an annual "Track Day" at which members of the
 group will have access to numerous Ride & Drive opportunities in both a
 closed-course and highway setting.  Other benefits will include access to a
 members-only area of the SEAMO website for discussion groups, member contact
 information, and links to media-only websites.
     Individual member dues have tentatively been set at $40.00 per year, with
 other options for business or corporate memberships.  Final arrangements
 regarding dues will be contained in a membership invitation letter to be
 circulated within the next few weeks.  Potential members are urged to contact
 the SEAMO's Executive Administrator, Tom Kelley, via regular mail or e-mail to
 indicate their interest in joining the group.
