Elections Draw Near, Be Sure You’re Registered!

Elections Draw Near, Be Sure You’re Registered!

The time to cast your vote and be heard isn’t far off! No, we’re not referring to “that” election. Instead, we’re talking about Sports Car Club of America® voting in October as it pertains to selecting Area representatives to serve on the SCCA® Board of Directors. This matter is being publicized today because SCCA voting procedures have changed and we want to give everyone ample time to make the small adjustment needed that ensures votes will be received and counted.

Recall that during SCCA’s 2019 voting process, the membership overwhelmingly approved a change to SCCA bylaws relating to voting on matters put in front of them. The endorsed change allows official SCCA notification/communication to now be delivered in either written or electronic media (e.g., email). Today, notices from SCCA can be communicated in person, by U.S. postal mail or other method of delivery, by email or other electronic means, or by publication in SportsCar Magazine or any publication routinely provided by the Club to members. As such, the Area Director selection process in 2020 will primarily be conducted via email with support information posted to SCCA.com about candidates and how to cast votes. Today, SCCA members are being reminded how to cast votes via electronic balloting.

To begin, it’s important the SCCA National Office has an appropriate email address on file, one you actually review and read regularly.

To review the email address on file with the National Office:

  1. Visit the Member Account Portal (MAP) at https://my.scca.com
  2. Log in using your member number and password (or use the “Forgot Password” link to reset)
  3. Once logged in, click “Edit Contact Information” on the “My Profile” page
  4. Click “Edit” under “My Email Addresses” if a change is required.
  5. Lastly, be sure to save the update.

The National Office assumes you have “opted in” to electronic delivery of ballots unless specifically “opting out.” Those opting out will have physical ballots mailed to them the week of October 5 so they may vote on Area Director candidates — if their Area Director is up for selection this year.

How do you opt out of electronic email balloting? We’ll tell you that in a moment. But first we’d like to remind everyone that the purpose behind last year’s bylaw update was to bring SCCA into modern times, provide significant savings, and supply the Club with an option that efficiently updates bylaws compliant with Connecticut statutes — the state where SCCA is incorporated. While the Club, as a whole, benefits fiscally by not delivering ballots by mail, there is the understanding that some may insist on receiving physical ballots to their tangible mailboxes.

If you still wish to opt out of electronic balloting:

  1. Visit the online Member Account Portal (MAP).
  2. Log in using your member number and password (or use the “Forgot Password” link to reset)
  3. Once logged in, click “Edit Contact Info” on the “My Profile Page.”
  4. Click “Edit Subscriptions” in the lower right under the “Email Subscriptions” section.
  5. Put a check in the box next to “Opt Out of Electronic Balloting.”
  6. Lastly, be sure to “Save” changes.

For those with queries regarding administration of electronic balloting and communications, SCCA created an FAQ web page that answers many questions. If further difficulties are experienced, please contact membership@scca.com for help. The deadline to opt out of electronic balloting is October 1.
