Six members of the Board are to be elected each year. The three candidates with the highest number of votes receive a two-year term of office. The next three highest receive one-year terms. If no more candidates run for the Board than there are open positions, no election will be necessary, and a lottery will determine the length of term.

The results will be announced at the December membership meeting. The new Board of Directors will adjourn and elect its officers for the coming year. The Regional Executive will be appointed by the newly elected Board of Directors, and will remain on the Board as a member for one more year.

Corner Marshals Wanted !

Do you enjoying Racing?
Want to be close to the action?
Steel Cities SCCA is looking for some volunteer Corner Marshals!
What is a Corner Marshal? Next to the competitors, these marshals are the most visible people on the track. They are viewed by the spectator as an integral part of the race, keeping the track clear, giving instructions to the drivers, and responding to incidents. These are the people who have the front row seats, with no-one getting any closer to the action unless they get their own racing car. They are highly trained to handle crashes, fire, and track cleanup. They have other duties, too, including signaling the drivers with flags, and keeping their sections of the track organized so that racing can proceed efficiently. When handling crashes and fires, these volunteers have been called the “shock troops” of racing, because until the ambulances, fire trucks, and crash/rescue vehicles arrive, the safety and efficiency of the track is in their hands.
What do you need?
THE BASICS: Appropriate full coverage clothing incl Weather/Rain Gear(White colors are a must) Hat, Sunglasses, Sunscreen Comfortable Shoes (sturdy shoes or boots w/ ankle protection) Gloves (blaze or safety orange) Whistle (w/ break-away lanyard) Backpack or Track Bucket to carry supplies, munchies, liquids, trinkets, Beverage Cooler, Folding Chair, Cutting tool (Sharp Knife)
FULLY EQUIPPED: Hearing Protection / Safety Glasses, , Rope (minimum 20′ length) Scanner with Headphones
