Voting for Area 11 Board of Directors for SCCA

We want to than Dale Shoemaker for his outstanding work as he steps down, Dale did an amazing job of looking out for us and making our voices be heard! He now wants to enjoy his retirement, so Peter Bollenbecker from the San Diego region is running! Here is his write up:

Summed up in one word, and with your support to represent Area 11 on the SCCA Board of Directors, stewardship - the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care, is what I will always strive for on behalf of the membership and our club.

Early on at an autocross, I overheard a member say, “I could move anywhere in the country and on any weekend make 100 new friends.” I can honestly say this is true and have made even more life-long friends both locally and around the country, and countless more memories within the SCCA community. This is what I believe is worth preserving, improving, and ensuring is passed on to the future, and the reason I am asking for your support and vote to be the SCCA Area 11 Director.

Coming into my past Regional Executive role, pre-COVID, and losing the site for our singular autocross program, it was a privilege to work with the membership and board to see the San Diego Region not only sustain itself, but grow into a vibrant region. The membership rebooted its autocross program with a new site and structure, and added on successful track day and time trials and road rally programs. Current Region Leadership are now engaged in developing alternate autocross sites and driving towards testing out a rallycross program. I am proud of the stewardship of our local Region and believe I can similarly add value and guidance to the broader SCCA organization.

Programs are the primary experience for our members, but their sustainment and growth require strategic direction, sound business practices and financial health. As a past CPA in public practice for 12 years, I worked with companies ranging from owner and venture backed startups to Fortune 500 companies. Having moved into private industry and business operations over the last 20 years, I currently serve as VP Finance and CFO for a large manufacturing enterprise. I intend to bring that breadth of experience, that I also applied to a local SCCA level, to ensure the continued success of the organization and to provide the means for sustaining and improving member experiences.

Thank you for your time and please remember to vote in the elections, it’s your club to guide!

Cal Club will no longer have a Regional Associate Membership Program. SCCA offers a Dual Region Membership, so it was a redundancy to have a special Cal Club associate membership. For those drivers wanting Dual Region memberships, please contact SCCA, or 800-770-2055.
