Happy Holidays! The hours upon hours of planning, organizing, operating, competing and fellowship that was the 2018 Season for Cincinnati SCCA has come to a close with an exciting outlook for 2019! At our last General Meeting in November there were a few exciting developments to report.
First, let me introduce your 2019 Cincinnati Board of Directors:
Region Executive – Tony Brown
Assistant R.E. – Gordon Benson
Treasurer – Shari McCoy
Secretary – Scott Bitzer
Board Members at Large
– Jim Clark
– Christy Graham
– Tom Thomlinson
– Takuto Takagi
– Brian Walker
– Glenn Thompson
Next up, Annual Awards Banquet! As previously mentioned our normal meeting place of Mill Race will be unavailable for Jan-Feb 2019 due to major HVAC work being done in the building. I am excited to announce our ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET will be the evening of Saturday February 2nd, 2019 at Receptions-FAIRFIELD (located at 5975 Boymel Dr, Fairfield, OH 45014). Details on registration will be coming soon!
And finally, NEW SCHEDULE FOR 2019 MEETINGS!! After much discussion regarding our passed General Meetings and how to improve member participation, the board decided on some changes for 2019 including:
– ALL monthly General Meetings will continue on the 3rd Tuesday of the month but will start at 7pm
– The General Meeting will follow the agenda of the normal Board Meeting but will also include a time for “Open Discussion” where any Cincinati SCCA member can ask questions of the board or event chairs.
– LOCATION of MEETINGS. Due to the rising cost of rental and availability of the Mill Race Banquet Center, we will be reducing the quantity of monthly meetings at Mill Race and will have alternate locations during the “off months” from Mill Race. Below is our tentative 2019 General Meeting Schedule (all TBA locations will be confirmed and posted on our website cincyscca.com, our Facebook page and email blasts):
January 15th 2019 – TBA
