The Southwest Division of the Sports Car Club of America (known as "Area 7") is made up of 10 separate SCCA regions in the Southwestern part of the U.S. Our purpose is to provide an information source for members of all the regions contained herein, with special attention being paid to the volunteer Club Racing Officials, whom we could not conduct Club Racing events without.
Racers from all over the state of Texas and Louisiana come together for Club Racing events and many regional autocrossers cross-pollinate to other regions outside there own. We hope to foster this behavior and increase the opportunities to members and regions of this division.
When: Saturday, February 1, 2020
Divisional officers and all others:
Matt Lucas, Regional Executive of the Texas Region, cordially invites any and all current members of SOWDIV to the 2020 Annual Meeting.
This meeting is held annually in accordance with our Bylaws and is the meeting in which we will discuss the business of the upcoming year. Although this is a "business meeting", there is always a chance for any member of the Division to ask and receive answers to questions they may have and a great time for camaraderie outside of an event setting.
The meeting location and time is still in the planning stages and will be posted soon. Please check back later in the year but circle the date on your 2020 calendar.
An agenda will be provided closer to the meeting and posted on the website.
IF YOU ARE A VOTING MEMBER, PLEASE COME TO THE MEETING OR SEND A PROXY. If you need further information on how to send a proxy, please contact me. It is important that we have a quorum for this meeting.
