Nominations are now open and will close in 3 weeks on February 7th.

I'm sure the current officers appreciate the show of support - but it is healthy for any organization to have new ideas and new ways of looking at things brought in on a fairly regular basis.  There are lots of people in the club who could step up and offer to serve - good for the club and good for yourself.  If you have not considered running, or if you have considered it but are holding back, it might be time to give it some serious thought and give it a try.

I'm afraid that I won't be able to serve on the Board for the coming year.  Work has been cutting into my available time.  I will certainly help in the transition to a new VP.  This Board has been great, and this was a difficult decision to make.

I would consider nomination for the VP position if someone wanted to nominate me for that? Would anyone like to take my event officer position?

PS I am currently traveling overseas. Please excuse any long periods of silence.

(Love the quote from Jeremy Clarkson, Todd!)
 
This is the last week for nominations and I encourage everyone to consider supporting the club by volunteering for an office or serving in other ways to continue to make things successful.
 
We definitely want to involve a group of people fairly soon to help plan out the events for this year and get rolling so whomever ends up in that position will have lots of help!
 
If I decide to run as President again, I would really like to mentor someone this year to take over as President next year.  My preference would be to have them take the position with me beside them to use it as an oppportunity to pass along my knowledge and get some additional documentation in place regarding the 'inner workings'.  Anyone out there interested in doing that type of thing with me?  I do have a few things that I still want to try to accomplish before I head out to pasture and I really want to see those through - just takes some time.
 
I'll post candidates soon, so let me know if you have an interest in any of the positions!

I'm replying from my mobile phone, so please bear any errors...

Gee, thank you! I am truly flattered. I will seek and strive to be the best at this position as I can possibly muster. I would appreciate feedback/support/advice from previous Event Officers if elected though.

Congratulations Brenda!  I think you would be good in this role.
I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.

There have been a couple of changes in our line up for next year.  Karin has decided not to continue as our Financial Officer for 2012 due to increased demands from her business and other interests.  Thanks for your service and contributions, Karin, and your business success sounds like a good problem to have!
 
That said, Dave Rinker ('Dave's not here'), who has been an active participant in our club, has volunteered to run for this position and we're looking forward to having him involved!
 
I'll post about the voting process (even though everyone is running unopposed) in order to satisfy the by-laws within the next day or two.
Thanks,
Linda
