AFM Board of Directors voting

In a few days, several positions on the AFM Board of Directors are going to be up for voting.  I am running for the SF Chapter Director.

If you are a member of the AFM, I would appreciate your vote.

My goal is to help promote the AFM to Northern California and increase our numbers in the coming years.  Tim Scarrott started an excellent campaign last year to promote the AFM and that campaign needs to continue.

I strongly believe that through media, social media and the technology of today we can bring our membership count back up and improve our club tremendously.

I have been watching our current board and how our club has been run for the past couple of years and I see that we are fairly stuck in the past when it comes to media, marketing and getting the attention that we need to keep our membership count up.

While the board has been doing a great job in some areas, we are sorely lacking in attention outside of our existing membership and that needs to change if we are going to stay solvent in the years to come.  I know how to make those changes.

We all know that the AFM is currently struggling financially.  There are a number of plans to help that situation but at the end of the day we need more members.  To get members we need attention from outside of our club.  We need new riders to recognize that our club exists and how great it is to be a part of it.
