There are many ways to get involved in any association. Running for office and voting are two of the biggest things (other than money) that you can do. I look at the list below, and I see a list of good names, reliable people. I know most of them, and the rest have good names. The downside is this list of names looks like the same list from the past three or four years. The same people keep running for office because NO ONE else is stepping up. Holding office in the local trade association is one way your company can give back. It also looks pretty good on your marketing materials.
I have heard a lot of complaints about ARCA for the past two years. And I mostly agree with them, but at the same time I know we can change it if we all wanted to. How? By stepping up, running for and winning office. Then Voting on our behalf. If you don't, these same guys will keep running the show. Don't get me wrong; they are good guys and mean well. But if they keep running things, they will do whatever they see fit. And if that does not fit with you, run for office or at least vote.
If you are a member of ARCA. Please cast your vote today. And start thinking about ways you could get involved in giving back to the industry and the community.
"I don't like how ARCA does this or that?" My answer "I don't either, run for office and I'll vote for you."
