t’s that time of year again! Elections for the SCCA Board of Directors are held each
fall with a portion of SCCA’s 13 Areas being up for election in any given year. This
year, Area 3 (SEDiv-South), Area 4 (GLDiv), Area 9 (NorPac-South), and Area 11
(SoPac) are on the ballot with incumbents eligible for reelection in all but Area 11.
Elections for Areas 1 (NEDiv-North), 5 (CenDiv), 7 (SWDiv), 8 (RMDiv), and 13
(NorPac-North) will take place next year while Areas 2 (NEDiv-South), 6 (MWDiv),
10 (NEDiv-West), and 12 (SEDiv-North) will occur in 2019. You can find your Area by
looking in your membership profile on SCCA.com.
Do you have what it takes to be a Director? First, you must have the time to
devote to the position – figure on 10 to 20 hours per week – plus travel to Board
meetings and certain SCCA events will be required six to eight times per year.
Second, you must be prepared to devote the effort and attention that this position
deserves. This is not a Board on which one serves by just attending occasional
meetings to vote on a half dozen items and head for home. Third, you must have
both written and verbal communication skills. BoD members
spend several dozen hours a month on the phone and deal with
countless e-mails. It’s also important to stay up-to-date on the
various activities of the Club, which requires regular
reading – both from “official” sources and lurking on various
forums. Finally, while there’s no specific business skill set
required, it is critical that you realize that BoD responsibilities
are to the entire Club, not just to a particular Region or activity.
A director must be prepared to keep the various demands
and priorities in balance and focus on the overall success of the
SCCA. Remember that Directors are elected by the Club
members in their Area, and represent those constituents on
the National Board, so they must be responsive to them yet
also fulfill their responsibilities to the Club as a whole. This is
where the Board can get bogged down in micromanagement
of individual programs and rules making rather than
performing its proper function of setting strategic direction.
The practical implication of this for a Director is that issues of
importance to constituents may not be in the long-term best
interest of the Club as a whole. An effective Director must be
able to balance these competing priorities.
If you think you’d like to run for the BoD, you will need to get 20 members in good
standing from your Area to nominate you by signing your nomination form. Contact
Aimee Thoennes ( firstname.lastname@example.org) for a copy of the form. Completed
nomination forms must be received by the SCCA in Topeka, Kan., by Oct. 1.
BoD service is a lot of work but it is also a great opportunity to help
shape the future of our Club.
