Now is the time to nominate candidates for regional representatives to the National Driving Events Committee (DEC). The positions of North Atlantic and Pacific Region
representatives are up for election and may be nominated using this form
. Please note, the term is for three years.
BMW CCA supports driving events conducted by chapters and at events such as Oktoberfest. The Driving Events Program is intended to promote driver education and safety by providing a framework for members to improve their driving skills in a fun and safe environment.
The Driving Events Committee is responsible for planning and overseeing the BMW CCA Driving Events Program. The Committee will:
- Update, maintain and enforce the Driving School, Autocross, and other Minimum Standards published in the Operations Manual.
- Monitor the Driving School Standards – In the event of a chapter violation, the elected DEC representative for that region will work with chapter representatives to arrive at an amicable solution that meets the standards. If the regional representative and the DEC as a whole cannot affect a solution, the matter will be referred to the National Board for resolution.
- Facilitate and oversee the National Driving School Instructor Training (ITS) Programs.
- Assist chapters in creating or improving their driving events programs. The Driving Events Committee consists of one representative from each region to be elected by chapter representatives in each region. Additional members may be appointed by the National Board as deemed necessary.
Nominations for regional representatives to the DEC must be received at the National Office no later than Thursday, November 15, 2012, 5:00 pm eastern time. Both the nominator and the nominee must be BMW CCA members who reside in the region for which the nomination is being made. The attached form may be used to submit nominations, or nominations may be submitted by letter, but must include the name, address, BMW CCA member number and signature of the nominator, and the name, address, and BMW CCA member number of the nominee. Nominees may include a 300-word candidacy statement that will be included with the ballots for their region.
Before their names are placed on the ballot, nominees will be contacted to confirm that if elected, they will serve.
Please confirm receipt of the nomination.
After all nominations have been received and confirmed, the National Office will prepare a ballot to be mailed to the Driving Events Coordinator or equivalent position of each chapter. Each chapter's driving events coordinator may cast one vote for the representative for their region. If a chapter does not have a driving events coordinator, chief instructor, or equivalent position, that chapter's vote may be cast by the chapter president.
Nominators and nominees should understand the process, eligibility, and responsibilities of DEC members, and consider these qualifications carefully prior to the nomination.
