TOPEKA, Kan. (July 29, 2009) – SCCA is seeking nominations for the 2009 Club Racing Workers of the Year. The Club annually recognizes the contributions and efforts of one individual per specialty at the National Championship Runoffs.
Winners are selected by a pool of nominations made by their peers, so submitting nominations is critical to the process. In recent years, the number of nominations has decreased. Don’t miss this opportunity to honor your favorite workers!
“We really want to see this program have a boost of energy in 2009,” SCCA VP of Club Racing Terry Ozment said. “Workers are SCCA’s most valuable asset. They provide the means for SCCA to conduct events while holding costs down. The Worker of the Year program is designed to honor their significant contributions to Club Racing. It’s too important not to submit a recommendation!”
Winners in 10 specialties (Emergency Services, Grid and Pit, Timing and Scoring, Scrutineering, Race Administration, Sound, Flagging & Communications, Registration, Stewarding and Starter) will be announced at the Worker Recognition Celebration, Thursday, Sept. 24 at Road America. Winners each receive a jacket, plaque, patch and SCCA Merchandise gift certificate. One winner will be drawn to receive a lifetime membership.
Nominations can be made by anyone and should include the individual’s name and specialty along with a brief explanation of why their efforts in 2009 have been exemplary. To nominate someone, just send an email firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t delay, do it today!
