Per the Chapter By-Laws (page 12), a Chapter member may nominate any other active member by submitting a nomination in writing via the US mail service or electronically via e-mail, with the consent of the nominee. The nomination shall be addressed to the current Acting President, Stan Dale ([email protected],com) and Treasurer, Stella Metz ([email protected]) or mailed to Florida Suncoast Chapter, P.O.

At either instance, a member-nominee put forth at a business meeting or in a written document, must be a Chapter member in good standing, have consented to his/her name being put forth by stating that he/she will actively serve in that office if elected.
The Chapter By-Laws, and its nomination provisions, do not provide for write-in candidates for office.

A candidate for any Florida Suncoast BMW CCA office must be a Florida Suncoast BMW CCA member in good standing; potential candidates are strongly encouraged to view the FSC By-Laws for the qualification requirements and the election rules contained in the BMW CCA Operations Manual.
The current BOD, by resolution, decided that the election ballots will be cast electronically by members via the motorsportreg.com site and be available when the nomination process is completed. A complete ballot for the various offices will be provided on for members to mark their individual votes for candidates. Separately on that web site, your name and membership number will be recorded for ballot validation. Electronic voting for candidates will open on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 12:01 PM (one minute after Noon), and close on Saturday, January 12, 2020 at 11:59 PM (one minute before midnight). The decision to use this procedure was made by a By-Law provision, which allows the BOD to determine the balloting form and process. Complete information for voting will be provided active and associate members, both at our regular north and south business meetings, and by email. There is NO FEE to vote.
