SCCA Member 316827
It is with great pleasure that I announce my candidacy to serve for Area 2 on the SCCA Board of Directors (BoD). At the urging of Jerry Wannarka, the immediate past Chairman and current Area 2 Director, along with my current RE, Jack Burrows, I feel that I have a great deal to offer the club as a BoD member representing our area.
I have been a member of the Washington, DC Region since 2002, racing in various Club Racing classes and supporting other drivers through my company MEATHEAD Racing. I have also held a number of leadership positions both Nationally and Regionally in the SCCA, including serving on the WDCR Club Racing Committee and nationally with the Spec Miata Advisory Committee (SMAC). I continue to look for new ways to volunteer my time and skills and am excited about the possibility of joining the SCCA BoD. I look forward to visiting many of you this summer, as I will be attending various SCCA events.
I bring to the table a long career of working with trade associations and member based organizations. I routinely work with member driven organizations on ways to adopt best practices and improve member participation and engagement. For the last year, I have been working with our SCCA President, Jeff Dahnert, and the current SCCA BoD on the launch of the North American Motorsports Expo (MSX), to be held in conjunction with our annual meeting this March in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I have included a summary of my professional resume below as I feel it is important that the BoD candidate possess the skills necessary to execute the responsibilities of the position.
