BMW MOA Board of Directors Standing Committees

The real work of the Board of Directors is done through the committee system as described by Robert’s Rules of Order. Each committee considers ideas either assigned by the President or ones developed internally. The committee members arrive at a consensus and present their findings and recommendations to the full Board at every meeting. Dedication to finding consensus and teamwork is essential. This system allows Board to be highly productive during it’s four regularly scheduled yearly meetings.

In sections below I list the official description of the purpose and responsibilities of each committee. Below each description are listed the current members and their status. There are four Board positions open during this election cycle and those members are marked in red. The President and Executive Director are non-voting Ad Hoc members of all committees. Certain Key Volunteers and the Media Editor are non-voting on-call advisory members of specific committees as listed below.

“The committee should be responsible for drafting communications policy for the organization. This should include drafting overall policy and oversight for financial matters and editorial content in all BMW MOA official publications, including internet based official media. The committee should be responsible for drafting policy that provides leverage of all official BMW MOA media. This committee would also have responsibility for drafting overall policy for marketing direction and control of BMW MOA products. This would include (but not be limited to): Use and reproduction of the MOA logos, appropriateness of current and proposed distribution chains and investment for BMW MOA branded products, member benefits, Ambassador and chartered club involvement, BMW NA/AG coordination, and dealer coordination.”
