President’s Message – December 2015

The second was to grow the membership from 2,450 to over 3,000. The third was to increase the number and type of events to address the different styles of driving our members prefer. The fourth was to make sure new members felt as if they were part of the family at all of our events. And finally, I wanted to ensure we interacted well with other regions in the zone and the country.
