Special Announcement

Chicagoland MG Club
Staff Position Elections

The Chicagoland MG Club consists of a membership of over 260 members; the majority residing in the Chicagoland area. The club is staffed with four elected officials and currently eight support staff positions. Staff members meet once a month. Being a club staff member is an honored position and is truly rewarding.

As we prepare for our 41st Anniversary in the year 2017, we will need strong leadership moving forward. You as an active member in good standing it is your obligation to cast your vote for the candidates running for the staff positions.

A voting ballot has been included in this December issue of Driveline. For the members receiving the electronic version of the newsletter, you will receive your ballot and membership dues envelope via US Postal Service.

Please cast your vote for the following positions:

Elected Staff Positions                         Candidates as of October                  
President Ray Hansen
Vice-President Jim Compton
Secretary/Membership    Victor L’Heureu
Treasurer Phil Wydra
The ballots are pre-addressed and will be sent to the Election Teller. Please do not send your ballot inserted into the membership dues envelope as this will delay the vote being counted ( if it gets rerouted to the Election Teller in time for tallying.) Ballots received after December 31, 2016 may not be counted.
