Eddy Funahashi Central California Chapter Three years ago, I asked for your vote as I sought the office of President of our club. I was humbled and grateful for your vote then and with that same spirit I ask again for your vote. Over thirty-three years of membership I have witnessed a great deal of change, but never more so than now. With your grace I would like to continue leading the club through this tumultuous period of our history. As we straddle the divide between the internal combustion engine and renewables, as membership organizations wrestle with relevancy, I want BMW CCA to set the pace for change and adaptation as only we can. Strategically we can and will achieve our goals by leading with change. To meet our needs, we’ll offer greater event diversity. Traditional gatherings for classic BMW aficionados, tuner events for those embracing modernity and customization. Leaning into BMW NA for exclusive events, a co-branded credit card that pays you to be a club member, discounts, rebates, expertise, and advance word on coming tech. Innovating with our other partners to benefit you. Membership is no longer defined by static borders. We offer non-geographic chapters centered around BMW sub brands M and X. i Chapter is next. Likewise, 2002 Forever, e30, and e31 Chapters provide specific benefits that our members want. Communication is not limited to print. We are investing the dollars necessary to bring our digital assets up to a level that will augment our print products with an online presence offering commentary, video and an interactive community. BMW CCA will guarantee our legacy by embracing the future and maintaining our community. To know our future, look no further than the most recent issue of BimmerLife Magazine which focused on the topic of “generations”. As a club it is our shared passion for all things BMW that brought us together. We remain for the family we built together.
