Sam Garst, #103463

My name is Sam Garst, and I am running for a director position on the BMW MOA Board of Directors. I am a member of the MOA, the RA, the Airheads and the Madison BMW Club #7. I have been a volunteer for almost as long as I have been a member of my local club, serving as the newsletter editor, a rally co-chair and the Rally Pharaoh. I have worked with Gates, with Safe and Sanitary, as a shuttle driver and as the Shuttle Chair at our national rallies. I consider becoming a director to be my chance to volunteer at a whole new level.

I believe that we need to encourage more interaction between the MOA and its Chartered Clubs. After all, the Chartered Clubs form the foundation of our national club. The MOA can help strengthen the Chartered Clubs by offering more resources and opportunities in the areas of safety training and club development. Additionally, the MOA should offer leadership development and training throughout the year to any interested members of our clubs.

I believe that the MOA needs to become more sustainable in the long haul. That means we need to find and retain new members from all of our diverse demographics. That means we need to make financial decisions that will benefit our club well into its future.

I believe that our club is more than just a gathering point for renewing friendships and telling tall tales. It is a place where we can share our collective wisdom gleaned from the millions of miles that we have traveled with our beloved Bavarian beasts across this planet of ours. My goals as a director on our board will be to reach out to you, to act as a sounding board for your ideas and concerns, and to ensure that our club remains responsive to all of its members.

I believe that the MOA is the premiere destination for individuals looking to experience all aspects of BMW motorcycle ownership. I believe that our past and present boards have done an outstanding job of guiding our club. I would like to continue that legacy as a director on our BMW MOA board, and I am asking for your vote.

Thank you for your consideration.
