It’s the start of a New Year, a new decade and a new term in office for me as Chair of BMMC.
I have decided on some new aims and objectives to build on where we have already come so far.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES
1. Provide communication and support to all marshals and potential members
Website to develop – we need to attract new people so new pages to develop
MailChimp to clarify recipients – some of you won’t get this as you’ve unsubscribed
Agree timing of messages – some of you aren’t happy with the content or frequency
2. Simplify Council reports and meetings
We need to be sure we are explaining our actions – so simplification is key
3. Committees to enable maximum relevant contact points for members
Ensure relevant content shared via Social Media
Attracting more members on to Committees – it’s your Club after all
4. Recruit new marshals – increase membership to 2,500 members
Taster days – ensure uniformity
Ensure regional contact point and follow up
Work with Motorsport UK to embrace all possibilities
5. Raise money for Race Against Dementia – our nominated charity of the year.
So hopefully this covers some areas you want to see develop but there’s space for some more objectives on here – so what am I missing? Forgotten?
We are reaching a club milestone for BRMC – 40 years recognised as a club for rally enthusiasts. We are launching a new logo and branding at Autosport at the weekend. Stand 3545 is the place – or watch Social Media for updates – a few teasers are out there already!
BMMC will be on stand 2392 with a new look too – tell us what you think. We are trying to bring clarity and identification to our stands. So this is our starter with some great work from the Brand team (and supporting cast!)
Lille have also a stand at Autosport this year and will be taking orders, measurements and answering queries for you on stand 2730
Sponsors have all agreed to continue for 2020 so our overalls are still fully subsidised despite a slight increase from Lille. Thanks as always go to Ginetta, MGCC, Cataclean, Polyflor, NGK, TIGA and CSCC.
Our membership renewal process is now open for 2020 – many of our members take advantage of our direct debit scheme which has now been processed. All membership packs will start being distributed in early February but once you’ve paid you are good to go!
Our volunteering system is also in the process of being populated so you can start planning the year ahead. I hope you got all your brownie points in at home to ensure you get to play out! See you out and about – hopefully some of you will visit Autosport. The year definitely feels like it’s ready to go – so ladies and gentlemen…………please START..YOUR..ENGINES!!!
