President – Shelly Collins

Secretary Fergus Esezobor has agreed to move to the Admin V.P. position.
Two Board members are passing the baton to members willing and capable of serving in those positions: Cathy Pugh and Mark Hamilton.
VP of Administration, Cathy Pugh has served for two years.  She arranges guest speakers and the Peachtree Bus among other duties.  Fergus will assume this position unless another nomination is made.
VP of Activities, Mark Hamilton, has been our Grand Prix organizer and Summer Track Coordinator for five years. Mark has always been available to organize our Grand Prix events and run the Summer Track meets with success and enthusiasm.
Please help us find a member willing to fill Mark Hamilton’s position.   As per our by-laws, any member in good standing can nominate himself or herself or any other qualified club member for any of these Board positions.
Look forward to seeing you on November 7.
