President’s Article November 2020

President’s Article November 2020

Each year the National Board holds elections for the Board of Directors. Regional vice-presidents are elected for three year terms that rotate so the entire Board does not turn over each year. This year the North Central Region is open and our current RVP, Tim Beechuck is not running after serving two terms. Therefore, I have decided to run for the National Board and my statement will be published in the Roundel in the near future.

After joining the BMW CCA in 1999, I was elected to the Iowa Chapter Board of Directors in 2005 and was elected President in 2011, which is the position I currently hold. I am also one of two Assistant Regional Vice-Presidents to the current RVP.

Gaining valuable leadership experience since I joined the Iowa Board of Directors, I feel the time is right to offer my expertise and knowledge to the National Board of Directors.

I feel the duty of the Regional Vice-President is to represent all chapters and members of the region to the National Board. The Regional Vice-President should communicate Board decisions to Chapters and members when major decisions affect Chapters and members involving regional and National events. The Regional Vice-President should also promote Chapter growth and retention, which includes strong support of Chapter, regional and National events. The Regional Vice-President should be the liaison between the National Board to the local Chapters in order to maintain positive and visionary leadership to build strong and healthy Chapters.

During my tenue as President, the Iowa Chapter achieved the #1 ranking for all Chapters in the North Central Region in a 2013 National BMW CCA survey. The Iowa Chapter historically ranks in the top five for all National chapters in member retention since the inception of member retention programs, which include Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube, maintained by our Social Media Committee.

In an effort to serve all of our members in Iowa, I worked to create a sub-chapter to better serve our members in the extreme Eastern area of Iowa.

The Iowa Chapter has been a strong supporter of Street Survival, Longest Day Driving School, monthly social gatherings and a strong selection of quarterly tech sessions.
