Club Meeting

Our by-laws define a very specific process for electing club officers and appointing directors.
So that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate it’s important to understand how that process works. It’s not as complicated as it seems so if you can bear with me for three paragraphs I’ll lay it all out.

Our club has a board of directors comprised of seven members. Four of those directors are the officers (President, Vice President, Secretary & Treasurer) that are elected by the members plus three additional directors. One of the directors is the immediate past president and the other two are appointed by the president.

The candidates for officer positions are selected by a nominating committee consisting of two non-board members and the current President. Alberto Beuses, Ron Torres-Gatherer and Tom Paligraf are the committee members.
The committee will present its slate of officer nominees at the November 3rd meeting at BMW Motorcycles of Ft. Lauderdale. The committee only presents ONE candidate for each elected position.

In addition to the slate presented by the nominating committee nominations from the floor will be heard. In order to be accepted, a nomination from the floor must be seconded and approved by 1/3 of the members in attendance on November 3rd. All of the nominations accepted from the floor PLUS the slate selected by the committee will comprise the “ballot” for Dec. 1st elections.

It means that this is the time to bring your ideas, opinions, knowledge and energy to the table.
It means you can have a greater say in where the club is going and how it gets there. Please Please Please seriously consider submitting your name for an elected officer position or an appointed directorship. We need fresh ideas and the energy to get things done. We need to continue to build our enthusiasm at the board level. WE need YOU. Even if you are happy with the way things are, you can help keep them going forward.
If you are interested in holding an officer or director position please send an email today to, include a phone number where you can be reached and a good time to call and either Alberto, Ron or Tom will contact you.
The deadline to submit your name to the nominating committee is October 31, 2018.
