Doug Andreassen

It has been a pleasure to serve our club in the Vice President role for these two years. While my involvement in the club goes well beyond these last two years, it has been an educational process to learn under the tutelage of President Ed Jenkins. I now ask for your vote of confidence for President of our club.

Our club has experienced steady growth in membership these last number of years. With that growth comes new challenges for us as we look to expand and grow our programs. We have recently added a social media chairperson who will assist us in outreach to not only current members, she will also guide us in the development of all our social media needs. I believe this will bring us further opportunities to attract new members and suggestions for new programs as well. The addition of our historian position now places emphasis keeping and achieving information for our future leaders of this club.

With the majority of our programs at full capacity and finding room for growth, I will rely on these chairpersons to help find new ways and methods to provide these services to all our members. We are now starting to see growth in the 4-door segment of our club. With the sales of these vehicles becoming the dominant part of Porsche sales, we must continue to find opportunities to work with these individuals to find a place in our club. The overland and off-road opportunities are just starting to show us what can be accomplished by inviting those owners into our club.

I look forward to working with our Technical Education and Tour chairpersons to continue to find new ways to serve our membership. As we see interest in these events continue to challenge us, we will work on methods to expand them to yet provide more opportunities and exposure for membership to learn and enjoy these events to their maximum capacity.

In closing, the club has a vital element that brings success to all our events. That element is YOU. With out our fellow club members and volunteers, we would not be able to offer all the services that we do. We must always find methods to enhance each of our experiences, so that collectively we can manage this growth and ensure that all who participate not only enjoy their vehicles, they also appreciate the comradery that comes with our organization. We have a wealth of experience in our club of individuals from every walk of life, I look forward to hearing their guidance and advice as we continue to move forward with new ideas and concepts for growth.

I ask for your vote for the position of President. I intend to continue to build on the foundation that my predecessors have accomplished over these many years. I would be humbled to serve the club and the members in this capacity.

Respectfully submitted,
Doug Andreassen

I would like your support for election to the position of Vice President. I really enjoyed serving for the past 2 years in the position of Secretary and learning the ins and out of the PNWR.

Listening to the different committee members, participating in many events (tours, DE, Autocross, socials, diver skills and concours) and organizing tours and events including the ones for women only have been very instructive. In particular, I have gained a better understanding of safety implications of each events which will be helpful in managing insurance as part of the Vice President role.

I will develop our new Happy Drive and Social mini tour series that we piloted this past spring with success, allowing more club members to join in our activities. I would like to organize a couple new events around car care (basic car cleaning such as the event I organized at Griot's for women last year) and car tech basics (tire pressure, brakes, etc.). I am of course looking forward to co-leading the women's only tour with Patti Lewandowski.

I am looking forward to meeting more of you along the way and sharing the fun as well and listening to your ideas and feedback to keep our club engaging for everyone as it is for our many volunteers!

Secretary

Ginger McMillan

I have been a member of PCA for 9 years, the first 8 of which were with the Silver Sage region in Boise. Over the years, I have been an active participant and volunteer in region activities, including several years handling timing and scoring at our club's annual hill climb, and registration at the annual Octoberfast car show. I attended Parade in Monterey, as well as Treffens at Lake Tahoe and Banff. In addition to participating in many PCA region drives, I've had the thrill of driving on the Laguna Seca Raceway and on the public portions of the Circuit de la Sarthe while visiting the Museum of the 24 hours of Le Mans.

We settled in Edmonds, WA and transferred to the Pacific Northwest Region almost a year ago. We moved to the region for the beauty and to get involved in sailing. My husband and I spent the summer racing sailboats with the Seattle Sailing Club.

My career of 27 years was with Supervalu/Albertsons where my last role was a Senior Software Engineer/Team Lead. I worked for the Idaho Supreme Court as a Senior Software Engineer/Team Lead.

When I went to the region's new member meeting, I spoke with several leaders about getting fully engaged in my new region and volunteering where needed. When I heard the region was looking for someone to take the lead as the club secretary I was excited for the chance to help. I look forward to meeting many more members of the Pacific Northwest Region. I ask that you support me to become your new club secretary.

Mary Downing

January 2019, I will have been an active PCA/PNWR member for 40 years serving as Treasurer for the last nine. Pre-retirement in late 2008, I was employed for 38 years with a worldwide multi-market manufacturing company in various management positions responsible for manufacturing operations and inside sales activities including systems upgrades and implementations while successfully managing cost control and profitability.

The Club continues to operate from a solid financial position while providing an increasing number of Porsche activities for members and co-members to enjoy. We should be proud that the Club and its membership contribute to deserving organizations. I really enjoy being involved with the Club and working with the Board and Chairpersons to enhance the Porsche experience throughout our Region.

This coming year will be the 60th anniversary of PNWR. I look forward to helping celebrate that milestone. Why not come and join the fun and enjoy the cars! PCA is fueled by volunteers, and I've had a great time volunteering.

Please vote to show support for the proposed slate of officers. Many thanks for your support this year and for your 2019 vote.

Director-at-Large 1

Martin Wild

My name is Martin Wild. I'm an avid automotive and Motorsports enthusiast that was bitten by the Porsche "bug" about four years ago when I brought home my 2006 Cayman S. My wife Anne, recently added a 2009 911 CS2 to our stable for double the fun!

I've been active in the Club's driver skills program as a volunteer and as a regular DE day participant. In the last year I began instructing at Skills days as well as completing my DE candidacy becoming a DE instructor for the 2018 season. I really enjoy introducing fellow enthusiasts to the performance driving experience and seeing the smiles and confidence driver education brings to them.

I've been actively involved in other car clubs over the past 12 years including the Puget Sound MINI Club where I was a board member for several years (Events Director). I remain an active member in that club as well, planning and leading drives annually. I'm also involved in some other grassroots auto-related clubs. Additionally, I built and raced a BMW E30 for 3 seasons in the PRO3 class with the IRDC/ICSCC at tracks throughout the PNW.

I look forward to the opportunity to be your new Director at Large and the chance to build on the great work the current and past leadership has done for the club. I think you will find my enthusiasm and passion will be a benefit to the club and its future.
