BCA Board candidates needed

Recommended Posts

We have three vacancies coming up on the Buick Club of America's Board of Directors, and only two candidates so far. We need one more to fill the Board, and at least two more to have an election. Deadline to enter is this week (Feb. 15, may have to extend that). You have to be a BCA member and attend the upcoming national meet in Ohio where the Board will meet and elect officers, and you have to have an e-mail address because much Board business is conducted that way. To be a candidate, send me a 500-word or less write-up explaining your qualifications and any relevant experience, and your ideas of what you hope to accomplish for the club. I also need a photo, from the shoulders up, to publish in the magazine with your write-up. Three-year term; volunteer position, although the club will pay some of your travel expenses to get to the meet.


Pete Phillips, BCA #7338

Did you ever receive enough?

I don't think so.  But at the last minute, some of the long time seasoned BOD members and BCA movers and shakers can nudge a like minded friend and get to 3 just to make sure there are enough.  Not so much in the BCA, which has gotten fewer and fewer candidates recently, but in some clubs the same cadre of BOD members are no longer necessarily elected.  The ROA was managed by one fellow for the longest time, despite a rudimentary board.   The WP Chrysler Club when I was in it years ago, was essentially "owned" by one fellow.  Other clubs are dominated by a small number of personalities.

I don’t know for sure but it seems that we usually end up with more candidates than there are openings. I could be remembering wrong though. It’s healthy to have a choice and I was glad to see that four stepped up to run.
