As Chairman of the Elections Committee, it is my honor and privilege to announce the results of this year’s NC Region’s Board of Directors election. I first want to thank all those who stepped forward to run for the Regional Executive, Secretary, and 2 Members-at-Large positions that were open this year.
Those serving on the Board of Directors (Board) play a vital role in overseeing the day to day operation our organization throughout the course of the year, developing longer term plans for the continued success of the Region, and representing our Region as part of Southeast Division SCCA as well as at the national level. As a volunteer organization, those who serve on the Board receive no pay or compensation for the considerable time and effort they put into overseeing our club and we should all thank them for their commitment.
I would also like to thank those in our Region who took the time to participate in this year’s elections through reviewing the slate of candidates and voting for their top candidates. While we are excited that the voting turnout was higher this year than in past years, possibly due in part to the ease of the recent update to an electronic voting system, there are still many members who did not participate.
The members of the Board, new and old, would encourage you all to get more involved in the Region at some level, be it as a volunteer on one of the Region’s boards or committees, as a worker, a driver, or just to vote and let your voice be heard. We have a fantastic organization and with your help we can make it even better!
And now I am pleased to announce that for 2020, our newly elected Board members are as follows:
- Regional Executive – Anna Crissman
- Secretary – James Shanks
- And Members-at-Large, in no particular order – Justin Deffenbaugh and Stephen Miller
Congratulations and we look forward to a great 2020!
Mark Senior, Elections Chair.
