Ken,

Performance Rally Board (PRB) members are appointed by SCCA's elected Board of Directors (BOD).

The BOD establishes all committees and boards. As a matter of policy, the BOD can follow whatever criteria it finds suitable for appointing the PRB members. The current process is somewhat of a mystery, but in general SCCA invites applications and selects PRB members from those who apply. The mystery is the selection process.

As a matter of POLICY the BOD could require regional/divisional representation, or elections, if it wanted too. The SCCA Bylaws do not specify how commitee appointments shall be made; nor do they limit the BOD from establishing whatever commitees or selection processes it desires. All committees/boards and their members serve at the pleasure of the Board of Directors.

Richard,

Changing the BYLAWS in not required, if the BOD chooses to hold PRB member elections (or other selection processes) as a matter of POLICY. The BOD can make that decision by itself as a matter of POLICY. The elected BOD has that power.

If the BOD is unwilling, then members could still force elections (or other processes) to be held by changing the BYLAWS.

RE: Contacting SCCA's Board of Directors (BOD)

Richard,

Thank you for posting the applicable Sections 3 & 4 of the SCCA Bylaws.

Please note that Section 3 does not specify a "criteria or method" for committee/board appointments made by the BOD. Only that the BOD shall make them, including the Chairperson. That means the PRB cannot establish itself (or it's own Chairperson by itself), without BOD approval. The elected BOD is the Authority. But, the BOD is free to choose whatever criteria it deems suitable for selecting individuals they wish to appoint.

To be clear, the BOD has the power of discretion on all appointments. One year the BOD could appoint their Brothers-in-Law to the PRB if it wanted to. The following year they could make appointments based on elections from the Rally License Holders. Another year appointments could be based on Staff recommendations; or a rotation of Mfg's & Organizers if the BOD determined that was best for SCCA.

Richard:
Yes, exactly.


Ken:
Don't loose heart. BOD members are responsible people and they ask for member input all the time. Make your case. Given the current anger of the Rally membership and PRB credibility, your suggestion may be very welcome.

Winning the hearts and minds of the BOD may not really be a problem.
But, also make your case to CEO, Steve Johnson. No doubt, the BOD will always ask his opinion.
