President’s Report – November 2011

I hope this note finds everyone doing well, especially since Fall has fallen with some quite cool weather. There are still some great days ahead for doing a mid-fall drive somewhere and the leaves around here haven’t all gone away. If you have any ideas or want to make a plan, go on the website and place it on the Forum page. This year has flown by with elections next month and the holidays approaching. 2011 can go down as a good year for The Kentucky Region.

I would like to thank the membership for their support at the monthly meetings with some really nice turnouts. There is still a considerable number of members that have yet to make it to a meeting and or attend an event. It would be nice to know, as the chief officer of your club, what interests you so you can become more involved with your club. The National membership has risen to 60 thousand members and our region has grown by around 20 new members this year. If you have any improvement suggestions let me know. My contact information is always listed in the Pacesetter and on the website.

Many thanks to the DE committee, headed by Jeremy Miller, for two very successful 2011 Driver’s Education events. Even National has noted the wonderful DE events by our Region. So “Great job!” to the entire DE Team.

We had several nice events in October such as the Louisville Concours with 50 cars in attendance and the Huber Winery Drive with our 24 cars plus CIR’s 27 cars. We’re planning an “After Holiday Party” most likely on January 14th. We’ll have door prizes and good food. More information will be coming in the December Pacesetter.

The Kentucky Region elections are here and ballots are due in November so we can put the tallies together for a December announcement. If you would be interested in holding an office, please let the committee know. One area of high importance is the Activity Chair person. This person is the heartbeat of the club’s events. Without one, we would be grabbing at things to do at the very last minute. So my plea is to ask for someone who would really be interested in doing this position. Your ideas and plans will spark new interest and involvement in the Club. Who’s up to it??

Our November Club meeting will be a little further out this time in the Norton Commons area at Johnny Bruscos New York Style Pizza.

See you there.

Steve McCombs
