“You join because of the marquee – you stay because of the people”.
This is statement could not be more true. It is because of the amazing people that are a part of this chapter that I am submitting my name for a second term as president.
A 100% volunteer organization requires a tremendous commitment of time and ideas. Member driven ideas like the expansion of the Bimmer Bucks, technology upgrades, refilling of personal water bottles and event programming all came from you. The board has worked hard to ensure that RMC has more members experienced in running or hosting events. And we always are asked to expand the current social schedule. It can happen quickly with help. For example, a new volunteer, Tiffany Sewell, has taken the reigns in Colorado Springs. After spearheading a Sonic night, she has already put together other events before the end of this year. It is great to have activity in an area where our members have been asking for more for such a long time. It takes a team!
As we head into another year, the board will continue to try new types of events to see if we can encourage more of our 1700+ members to come out and meet each other or participate in our solid autocross and driving school programs. 2020 will be another busy year as we explore expanding our driving programs, a ladies day event and participating in other regional events with our neighboring chapters. Our chapter is on solid financial ground, the outstanding Motorsport Report and website will be under going upgrades and we will continue efforts to expand our volunteer program. It would be a honor to continue to be a part of these exciting next steps for the chapter.
