We have published our first Roundelian Newsletter of 2017, please check it out here.
In case you’re short on time, I wanted to at least welcome our newest board members! After our annual Recognition Dinner in January, we elected a new Illini Chapter Board
of Directors (see page 14). I was honored to be selected to replace James Hanerhoff
as your President and realize I am filling big shoes in replacing James, as well as Rick
Roudebush before him. Be sure to thank them for their sharing their time, expertise
and experience, which they will certainly continue to do for us. Eric Wank, who
previously did a great job as our Secretary, is now your Vice President.
We are excited to welcome three new faces to the board. Ryan Case, a long-time
BMW enthusiast will be stepping in as our Secretary and Kevin Rice, relatively new to
the brand, takes over as Treasurer. Danielle Laroche will also be joining us as our new
Web & Social Network Administrator; bringing her passion for design and social media
to our club. These new members will bring some new ideas to the club, as well as a
refreshed website and improved communication to our members!
Our previous Treasurer, Jeff Frank is stepping down and will be severely missed on the
Board. Thanks, Jeff, for all you’ve done and I fully endorse Rick Roudebush’s
testimonial on Page 3.
As we get moving in 2017, with Spring just around the corner, we are trying out some
new event ideas while continuing our old traditions. We truly look forward to meeting
you ALL this year. Thank you for your continued membership to the BMW CCA & the
