Nominated for President of Board of Directors position
ACNA Member since October 2000
For Board of Directors, alphabetically:
My partner Chris and I live in Cartersville, GA, and are both longtime sportscar and off-road enthusiasts.
As far back as I can remember, I have always admired Audis. In mid-2014, I wanted a new SUV, test driving MB GL-450, Lexus GX-460 and an Audi Q7 Prestige. Immediately upon driving the Q7, I was hooked. Straightaway, I configured and ordered a 2015 Q7 S-Line Prestige; then anxiously waited 6 months for delivery. We have since owned a 2010 S5 and currently own a 2017 Q7 Prestige, 2015 RS5 Cabriolet, 2010 Jeep Rubicon and 2017 Tacoma TRD 4x4.
We joined Audi Club in May 2015. Attending our first meeting in July the same year; we were welcomed with open arms, helping these first time Audi owners feel like old friends from the beginning. The warmth and enthusiasm of the group was far beyond our expectations. Since joining the Club, we have participated in every event our schedules allowed. Our first major event was QDM 2016, where we came to understand Ted's expression "the cars bring us together; the friends keep us coming back." Since then, involvement and enthusiasm for the Club has grown even more, including becoming a member of the 2019 QDM Event Committee, as well as "leading" and/or "tailing" past drive events. As someone that is a member of other organizations, I find Audi Club members are second to none and I felt honored being awarded "2019 Member of the Year" of the Georgia chapter.
Professionally, I am a Director of Information Systems. I served 8 years on the Board of Directors for the Coosa River Basin Initiative, 5-years as President, 1-year Vice-President, and 2-years Secretary. I also served on the Board of the Rome Area Heritage Foundation, Co-chaired my previous neighborhood HOA, and am currently a Committee member for the transition of our new neighborhood HOA from developer to homeowners.
As a member of the Board, I will work tirelessly with the Board and membership to ensure that Audi Club of Georgia remains the premiere Audi Club chapter. I will use my planning skills to help plan drives and other events, continue as a member of the QDM Committee, work with National Board as needed, and continue to promote Audi and Audi Club.
Thank you for honor of your consideration.
The Audi Club of Georgia recommends a change the bylaws as follows:
7.6. Chair Emeritus. The Chair Emeritus shall be reserved for outgoing Presidents for the purpose of providing continuity and guidance - especially to incoming Presidents. Closely working with the President, the Chair Emeritus will support general supervision, direction and management of the affairs of the Chapter. The Chair Emeritus is a member of the Board of Directors, and therefore has voting rights at any meeting of the Board of Directors.
Proposed (Changes are shown in bold):
7.6. Chair Emeritus. The Chair Emeritus shall be reserved for outgoing Presidents for the purpose of providing continuity and guidance - especially to incoming Presidents - for a one-year term. Closely working with the President, the Chair Emeritus will support general supervision, direction and management of the affairs of the Chapter. The Chair Emeritus is a member of the Board of Directors, and therefore has voting rights at any meeting of the Board of Directors during this one-year term. Following the one-year term, the Chair Emeritus may elect to remain on the Board of Directors as an Advisor but will no longer have voting rights.
