Dear FCA Members,
I would like
to give the club members a few of my thoughts regarding my duties as your
president. At this time, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Marv
Landon for his tenure as your President for two years. In the last 2 years,
Marv has enhanced this club with his organizational skills which has honed our
club into a real organized entity, rather than just a bunch of club members
going off on their own. Marv has made it much easier for me in the future as
well as other members who are on the Board of Directors. Assuming the
presidency is not an easy task, and I will certainly have to call on many of
you to assist me in running the club. There are few items that I would like to
point out that I think need work. The foremost is the upcoming national meet in
Century City in 2002. We are still working on sponsorship which
continues to be fluid however we are optimistic that we are going to have an
absolutely world class meet here in Los
A few items
that I would like to accomplish during my term are as follows:
- Build the
membership (always a priority).
- 2. Attract
new Board meeting attendees who will then segue into Board of Directors later.
- Monitor the
financial situation in the club to prevent the club overextending ourselves
financially especially with regards to the 2002 meet.
entering an exciting new era in the ownership of Ferrari automobiles, evidenced
by the Ride and Drive to Monterey. I was struck by the number of drivers who were
forty and under. Along with their enthusiasm, I think the Ferrari Club of
America has much to look forward to in the future.
