Voting closed on Friday, February 15, at 5 p.m. EST, and this year we had the highest turnout of voters in recent BMW CCA history! The results are in, and Jeff Caldwell has succeeded incumbent Lou Ann Shirk for the position of North Atlantic Regional Vice President by a narrow margin. The BMW CCA would like to thank both candidates for their dedication and spirit of volunteerism, and also congratulate Jeff Caldwell on his victory in the election. Without our volunteer leadership, we would not be the club we are today!
In addition to the regional election, members voted on a proposed bylaw change. The bylaw amendment passed with a resounding 80% majority voting in favor. There were 3,581 votes for the amendment, and 835 against.
About The Election
Voting opened on January 9, 2019. All votes had to be completed and received by BMW CCA Headquarters by 5:00 p.m. EST on February 15, 2019, in order to be counted. Only members in good standing as of December 31, 2018, were eligible to vote in this election. For the 2019 BMW CCA election, voting was done electronically via the Internet using a secure election service.
In accordance with Article 5, Section 7 of the BMW Car Club of America bylaws, ballots were not prepared this year for the positions of BMW CCA Treasurer or Pacific Regional Vice President because there was only one candidate for each position. Those candidates will be certified at the annual BMW CCA general meeting.Tags: Election Results
