Hello Mary/Gordon,
How many positions total come due for election/reelection this time?

Who is not running for reelection? Who is running for reelection?

Thanks,
Cliff

I just opened my latest Registry magazine and there was the answer... 2 terms have expired, 1 Trustee seeks reelection, 1 long term Trustee is not running for reelection. The article notes that supporters of term limits had nothing to worry about. I would rather say that as long as we don't fall back into a pattern of Trustees serving for decades then the club will have the benefit of "fresh eyes" and will be all the better for it. I hope the term limit discussion has had some influence at encouraging some voluntary turnover. I look forward to the evolution to be caused by our "new guys" and hope that the "voluntary term limits" are respected in the future.

This change was fostered, and designed by Felix Macaluso, and supported by me early on. We have new blood including the President, and all for the better. Hopefully all the "Old Timers" will bow out sooner rather than later.

……………………………………...Jim.

I notice that Gordon does not have an avatar. Mine is gone too, and I don't know how to get it back. Honest, I've tried. ……………..Jim.

As present and past board members and officers of the Midwest 356 Club, we wish to record our endorsement of Patrick Yanahan for election to the Board of Trustees of the Porsche 356 Registry. We would also like to acquaint Registry members outside the Midwest with Pat’s record of service to the Midwest 356 Club over the many years of its existence.

Pat’s contributions to our club draw on his detailed knowledge of the 356 itself, his broad base of personal contacts in the Porsche world, and the trustworthiness and generosity of his character. These have combined to give us a number of uniquely rewarding shared experiences, including:

    A group trip to Zuffenhausen and Gmünd in 2007, which Pat organized on his own initiative and which took a group of over 20 Porsche enthusiasts to such places as the factory museum, the Weissach test track, Porsche’s own restoration shop, and Helmut Pfeifhofer’s Porsche Museum in Gmünd. Pat’s account of this trip, illustrated with photographs taken by the participants, is available for you to see on our club’s website, at http://www.midwest356.org/Germany2007.

    A series of workshops, hosted by Pat in his own garage, where he presented and demonstrated the tools, techniques and materials he uses to bring the paint job of a 356 to a concours-winning level of perfection. These workshops have proven so popular that Pat has repeated them several times as paint technology has changed and new members have come into the club. See http://www.midwest356.org/PastEvents/Paint2009.

    Visits to, and presentations by the craftsmen of, several high-quality body, trim and restoration shops in the Chicago area that cater to the needs of 356 owners.

    Joint ventures with the Porsche Club of America Chicago Region, including historical displays of 356s at PCA events. See http://www.midwest356.org/PastEvents/Potters2008. Pat’s involvement with the PCA over the years has also included serving as a concours judge and training other enthusiasts to become judges themselves.

    A second Europe trip, just this year, to the 24 Hours of LeMans race, bracketed by a visit to the Morgan factory in Britain and a weekend in Paris.

In addition to his own initiatives on behalf of our club, Pat has been a valued member of the club’s leadership since its inception, serving as a board member, Vice President, President and honorary advisor over the years. All of us who have worked with Pat have come to know him as a dedicated, congenial, knowledgeable and hardworking person whose contribution to our club is immeasurable. We are sure that he will bring these same qualities to the Porsche 356 Registry Board of Trustees, and we recommend him to the voters without reservation.

Jim Hinde: Thank you!
Jim Liberty: I could not agree with you more. This endorsement, and the dedicated service (through all the BS) of the retiring directors (and recently retired directors) makes me happy to be a member of this organization. Lets keep it going!
Bill
