Porsche Club Of America - Chicago Region

PCA Chicago Region News

To all Chicago Region Members:

Hard to believe that it is that time of year...time to start the process for the election of the Chicago Region PCA board for 2018!!

This will get a bit long as I want to make sure I outline the complete process.  So please be patient and read it completely.  Feel free to call me with any questions.

It all starts with the naming of a five person nominating committee.  In order to be considered for the nominating committee, you cannot be considered to be on the upcoming ballot for a position on the board.  As president I name the members of the nominating committee and as out going president...I know my next role...past president, therefore I will act as the head of the nominating committee.  The following four individual's have volunteered to serve with myself:

  • Keith Clark - Director 2017-2018
  • Bob Rath - Director 2015-2018
  • Toby Duckett - Current Past President 2016-2017
  • Peter Faehnrich - Director  2014-2017

So...you want to be on the board...
