To all BMWCCA Members: My name is Nick Owen and I am running for the position of Pacific Regional Vice President for 2013. For the past two years I have been President of the San Diego Chapter and the Pacific Region representative for the National Membership Committee. During my term as President, I tasked myself with ensuring the structural integrity of the chapter and collaborated with members on our image and direction. While on the Membership Committee, I routinely communicated and strategized with Membership Chairs in multiple regions on various topics and situations regarding membership. Aside from my day job as a Professional BMW aficionado, I have contributed time and energy into discussing situations and solutions and nullifying chapter issues with the National Board and other chapter representatives nationwide. I feel that with my youth and ambition, I can not only represent the upcoming generation of BMW enthusiasts but I can be effective at contributing new ideas and concepts to help our club grow and prosper. If elected Pacific Region Vice President, I intend on working with the Pacific chapters in an attempt to strategically improve on the synergy of the BMW club presence in their area, while helping them with any questions or issues that may occur. I will bring diligence and professionalism to the responsibilities I perform as well as ensure the congruent longevity of our club. I believe that with everyone working together we can take our club to a new level and over deliver to our members, the Ultimate Car Club experience!
