Brockton, MA — With the election of a new board & various executive positions, the underlying themes coming out of NEMA’s 2012 rules meeting and elections held in December at Thompson Speedway’s clubhouse were about stability, cost savings & growth.
NEMA’s executive board will once again be headed up by President, Mike Scrivani. Scrivani will be supported by Tim Bertrand as Vice President, Russ Stoehr as 2nd Vice President – to focus on the NEMA Lite series, newly elected Paul Scally as Treasurer, and Linda Cleveland, who continues as Secretary. Doug Cleveland and Shawn Torrey were re-elected as board members, along with a new contingent including Adam Cantor, Barry Kitteredge, Bob Seymour and Joe Santa Maria.
“Coming off of one of the most competitive seasons ever, we looked – both as a club and as a Board, to achieve stability, cost savings and focus on growth for 2012,” stated Vice President, Tim Bertrand. “We chose to freeze some of our current technical rules for a period of at least two years and adopted some new rules, such as a new handicapping system to encourage car count. Our old system discouraged members who were only able to make it once in a while, and the new system encourages anyone with a midget to come run with us. We hope to even attract some talent from the Midwest to our races,” said Bertrand.
