BMW CCA Windy City — February 2016
Change Language:
The Steering Wheel

As you read this column, the 44th annual Awards Presentation and Dinner will be history. A lot of planning and preparation went into the event which is described in this issue of the Breeze. It was a time to meet old friends and make new ones. It is also a time to recognize achievements from the past year. Please take a look at it and the pictures on the web site. We also held elections for your Board of directors for 2016. These are also listed in the article. I would like to take this time to thank and recognize two retiring board members for their service and dedication to the club. The first is John Kelly. He has served as your President and as your Vice President over the past few years. His leadership and talent have made our organization better and helped to prepare for the challenges ahead of us. His organizational skills and attention to detail will be missed. Thank you John. The second retiring board member is Vince Helou. He has been our treasurer and master of the checkbook. He has kept us on the financial straight and narrow. Thank you Vince for your dedication and insight.

We are embarking on a new year. Some things will remain the same, but some will change. This is a dynamic organization and we are always looking for ways to improve our service to the membership. We are constantly looking for new ideas and input. Please let us know how we can make our events new and different. Your input is essential to keeping the organization vibrant and growing. Your participation and involvement is critical. Please communicate to any of us your ideas, suggestions, or comments. We look forward to hearing from you.
