Lets get the facts correct. The change to require MCA membership for those to have their judged by the MCA was being discussed long before I bought my pace car. I pushed it because I felt to get the benefit of a MCA award you should be a MCA member.
Again I ask why should a non MCA member recieve the same benefits of a MCA member? I can't get an answer to this question. Could it be there is no logical answer for my question?
We are flying at 30,000 feet and do see the horizon. If a club doen't change with the times and then the times pass us by. Then the club sinks!
About the ground war over egos. Sir, you are so wrong words can't describe how wrong you are.
There are many Directors who travel the country at our own expense to promote the MCA or judge members cars. Many of us spend thousands of dollars a year to make MCA a stronger MCA. The numbers prove our success that, just like our travel reciepts . Where do our egos fit?????
One thing we do agree on. Your run for a BOD seat is NOT the answer.
If you recall the recent poll taken regarding two 50th events. The majority was in favor of two shows. The membership spoke.
As for Pres Streve Prewitt, he values everyones opinion. He is most respectfull to all members. Even those that oppose him. If you feel the way you spoke above then the problem is on your end.
Everyone's opinion is considered and used in the final discussion to make the outcome of all issues.
You know the caryou said that can't be worth much. Even though it is 1 of 50. That is your opinion and I respect your opinion. I used myself as an example only.
How many members have been effected by this? I'm a MCA member because I want to be and want to see the MCA grow.
Personal agends are not the reason we promote the MCA. It's statements like yours the BOD can't go to the membership for an opinion. It is biased from the beginning.
Imagine if the BOD did ask for opinions of the membership and 5,000 members replied. Progress would be halted while everyones opinion was sorted!
If you feel I am the problem and not the soultion I respect your feelings.
As membership chair I am responsible to grow the membership. And growing the membership I am doing!
Thie requirement to be a MCA member to have your car judged is another venue to grow the membership. If you have suggestions I/we will gladly work to institue them.
