2019 marks a turning point in our club.  Nearly all of the current BOO members have indicated that they will definitely not be candidates for office next year.  
After nearly 13 years for Robin, and extended tours for most others, the club will need to look for new blood and new leadership going forward.  NOW is the
time for all of you to give serious consideration to serving on the Board in 2019 and perhaps after.  I know, the current slate has said this before.  But this time
it is true.  If you want to see SAMOA continue to thrive and remain the best Miata club in the world, this is the time to consider a BOO position.  Please contact
any current BOO member to toss your hat into the ring.  Remember that these are all highly compensated positions with significant retirement packages and
other perks.  The status of volunteers for the BOO positions for 2019 is as follows...
