By the time you read this, you should have received your 2015 Blue Book. Another great job by Choon Gan, but Choon has decided to step down from the Membership Director position. He has given us four solid years as director, and now has been promoted to member status. Thank You Choon for your service, it’s been a pleasure working with you on the EC. Stepping up to fill the position is Michael Tissandier from California. Choon and Mike have been working together the last few months, which helped make the transition seamless.
All of us who attended and worked the AIMExpo felt it was well worth the investment and time. A “Thank You” to Paul Van Steelant for organizing the Florida team to work the booth and to the EC and National staff members for making the 4 days a success. Some numbers from the event, 501 exhibitors, 18,145 total attendance, 11,123 consumers, 3,068 dealer/industry professionals, 3,713 exhibitors & staff, and 241 media. Our organization is known to a lot more people in the motorcycle industry, as a result of attending this show.
I would like to inform the membership of some changes on the EC and on the National level. Jay Campbell has stepped down as an EC member, Jay will continue as our administrator for the Website and Forum. Harry Hemstreet our STAR administrator has joined us on the EC as EC Member at Large. Thank You Jay and Harry for your continued efforts to make our organization a first-class riding club.
