Hello, my name is Wiley Cox, and I’m a previous NER Board of Directors member, as well as having served as the New England Region Regional Executive. I am running as a candidate for the board for the upcoming 2-year term starting in 2020.
I have been involved with the SCCA, primarily in autocross, for 15 years. I have also competed in Road Rally, as well as serving as an SCCA flagger in regional and divisional events, as well as helping out in Emergency services where needed. In the Solo group, I have held a number of positions, including worker chief, timing chief, equipment chief, novice co-chief, and youth steward. I was first elected for the board of directors at the end of 2012, accepted the nomination and was voted into a position on the board at the Annual Meeting in 2013. After serving for a year on the board, I was honored to be voted in by the board to become the Regional Executive starting in 2014, a position which concluded at the end of my term in early 2018.
In my time as a board member, the region spent significant time and effort in helping to bring the region’s racing to new locations, including both Thompson and Palmer road courses. The Rallycross and Solo groups both saw increasing attendance at their events, and we held entertaining events across all our disciplines. We also began the long process of identifying and cataloging our archival materials, a project I’d be excited to rejoin and help continue.
I am asking for your vote for another 2-year term as a board member, to be able to serve the club and help guide us into the next decade. I’m excited to be able to continue my work for you all on behalf of the club. Thank you.
