Greetings Zone 4 Members,

  Before all of our regions’ driving seasons began, it was time for us to hold our annual Zone 4 Presidents’ and DE Meetings.  This year we were joined by a number of VIPs including National Past President Manny Alban, National Treasurer Aaron Ambrosino, as well as Executives from French Lick Resort. National Street Survival Chairman Randy Faunce was also in attendance. National President Caren Cooper felt it was important to have some of the new Zone Reps attend another Zone’s Meetings in order for them to observe and learn how they are properly run.  She sent New Zone 12 Representative Dave Herndon to Zone 8 Representative Tom Brown’s meeting and New Zone 3 Representative Vic Rola was sent to attend my meeting.

  The meetings comprised a weekend full of activities which began on Friday night with a Welcome Reception hosted by French Lick Resort followed by dinner at Forrester’s on the River.  We were given use of their private dining room and provided with a reserved parking area for our Porsches.  The next morning started bright and early with the Presidents’ Meeting.  Attendees had the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes generously donated by French Lick Resort and were treated to lunch sponsored by the resort as well.  The spouses visited the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion where they watched a live glass blowing demonstration.  I am pleased to announce that nearly every region within Zone 4 was represented, with most regions sending a number of members, as we filled the ballroom at the Maumee Bay Resort.  After an informative and enlightening day of interactive discussions, many of us went out to enjoy an evening of dinner and entertainment in our own private VIP area at the Hollywood Casino for some social playtime. 

  Sunday’s meeting was dedicated to addressing DE questions and concerns.  In addition, Zone 4 Safety Chair Chip Henderson discussed the work he has done as part of the National Safety Committee as well as the results from the study he sent out to Zone 4 Presidents last year.  A great deal was accomplished during these meetings.  Most importantly, I wanted this weekend to be a balance of productive discussion and education as well as a chance for us to socialize and bond through fun, light hearted activities thereby promoting my main theme for the weekend, which was to encourage all of us to join forces and come together in order to start working as 1 cohesive Zone thus providing even more opportunities for our members to enjoy the camaraderie that PCA offers. 

  Be sure to check your local region’s website and newsletter, as well as the Zone 4 website  for the latest details on the many events close to you that are being planned.  See the Event Calendar below.

  I look forward to having the opportunity of meeting each and every one of you at these upcoming events. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at:
