The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from STEVE LIMBERT, CPA-PCA President
At our last monthly meeting I once again checked with our VP to ascertain if all our committee chairs had submitted their outlines “on how to run things”. It was decided several years ago that we needed to have all the information from the various committee chairs be able to run our various programs should the chairman be unable to continue in that position.
As your president, prior to our July meeting, I will be contacting the various committee chairs to make sure we have all the information required to run our various programs should the chairman be unable to continue in that position.
Since the job of the VP was mainly to back up the President it was felt that the VP could collect the information required to keep our programs strong and viable. We still do not have all reports “on how to run things” which I and others believe are critical to insure continued growth and stability within our club.
As your president, prior to our July meeting, I will be contacting the various committee chairs to make sure we have all the information required.
A couple weeks ago I went out to the Stoddard Swap meet as a vendor and possible buyer, IF I found any great deals on Porsche stuff. Several years ago I had gone when the swap was held at the original Stoddard dealership. That proved to be a worthwhile adventure, finding some hard to find things and selling others. Unfortunately this trip was to say the least not that great. The site is now at the Stoddard NLA parts store area, located about 10/12 miles from the old dealership.
Weather was pleasant and things were well organized but the foot traffic was off. This swap is only about 10/15% the size of our event and folks were not of the spending mindset. But again any time you can spend time with other Porsche enthusiasts ain’t all bad.
Last Sunday evening the National Club was trying to hold a teleconference call for a BOD meeting instead of using the region proxy approach. Yours truly was one of 93 region presidents that signed on but alas, lacking three additional presidents, no quorum was reached and that meeting was scrubbed. It will be tried again in July, I will be in touch with our Zone 2 rep reminding her of summer vacations and the possibility that it might even prove more difficult to muster the required 96 presidents.
As most of my fellow club members know I spend a lot of time behind the wheel of “something” either going to a race, club meetings, running for parts, picking up customer cars etc etc. You get the idea! But it’s almost inconceivable how many times I have witnessed near misses from folks texting, talking on cell phones or just plain poor driving habits. Its truly scary on the road!
Again I urge all to be attentive when behind the wheel and YEA I do know i’m preaching to the choir but we need to instill in our kids safe driving habits.
As always, TRAVEL SAFE
