For the 2019 election, we have three BMW MOA Board Director positions open for election. Six MOA members, including three incumbents, have submitted biographies and photographs published in this month’s issue of BMW Owners News.

Elected candidates will be seated on the board as an MOA Director during the executive board meeting on Wednesday, June 12, at the BMW MOA
International Rally in Lebanon, Tennessee. The three newly elected Board members will serve on the Board for three years. Once the new Board members have been seated, officer elections for the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary will occur.

As in past elections, during the month of April a special election forum will be available to allow MOA members to interact with the candidates running for election. The election forum will be available by accessing the MOA Forum’s Clubhouse section of the MOA website.

I would like to personally thank Kurt Schrader, BMW MOA Forum Liaison, and Steve Henson, Forum Administrator, and all the forum moderators for their hard work and effort in creating, monitoring and moderating the election forum pages.

After thoughtfully considering your choices for Director, complete your ballot and place it in a mailbox. All ballots must be postmarked before April 30, and received by May 10, 2019, to be counted.

The MOA Board of Directors would like to thank our Election Committee volunteers who have worked diligently to bring forth qualified and motivated members to the board, ensuring the healthy future of this great organization. Thank you Tom Buttars, Don Hamblin and Muriel Farrington. Your service to the organization, like so many of our volunteers, is exemplary.

If your 2019 election ballot has been destroyed and is not available for you to vote. A replacement ballot can be sent to you from the MOA office. Deb Lower, BMW MOA Secretary

I accidentally threw out my voting form assuming that this could be done online. Are we really stuck with snail mail only?

My April issue of the magazine was damaged and thrown away. Is there another way for me to vote in the upcoming BOD election ?
