Well that is a wrap for the inaugural Annual General Meeting for the QLD 86/BRZ Car Club which was held this past Sunday.  The meeting has been a culmination of many years of building the club from roadside meetings of the first car owners, monthly catch ups, cruises, dyno days, dedicated happy lap sessions and many more events.

The past few years the club has been driven by Joel Zim, as we all know him, and it has been Joel’s vision to transform the club into an incorporated club and we started the process in November 2015.  From slow beginnings we have built up an excellent group of like-minded enthusiasts that work tirelessly behind the scenes to run events, obtain sponsors and promote the club.

Now that Joel has fulfilled this goal, he has made the decision to step down from the Presidency of the club and look after his true passion, Motorsport. On behalf of the board we wish to thank Joel for his efforts over the years and look forward to him being involved in all things motorsport.

Joel approached me and asked if I would follow in his big shoes and become the clubs next president.  Although I have enjoyed the treasurer role, being a bit of an accounting nerd I was happy to step up to the new role.

I thank Joel for the vote of confidence and the board and members for supporting me.  I really look forward to help building on the foundations of the club.  I would also like to thank the other board members for their efforts, as we wouldn’t be where we are with out them!  The after hours work they all put in is something to be very proud of!

The only other change to the board is the appointment of Ant Harmer as treasurer.  Ant is a chartered accountant and will be more then capable of looking after our small fiancés, the board welcomes him aboard.

Following the 2017 elections, your elected board is as follows:

President: Mitchell Brooks

Secretary: Emma Hall

Treasuer: Ant Harmer

Motorsport: Joel Sang

Sponsorship: Keith Holtham

Mitchell Brooks
