Oct 1- Hagerty ‘State of the Collector Car Market’ webinar – Free Event!

How volatile is the BMW collector car market? We know that 2020 has been an interesting year, to say the least, but what does that mean for the value of your BMW or one you may want to purchase in the near future? Join Hagerty valuation experts Dave Kinney and Greg Ingold to discuss the BMWs that have had the biggest gains or losses in the past year. Dave and Greg will discuss the current state of the German car market, how current design decisions made by the brand are affecting the collector market; what models are going up and down in value and where they see the BMW brand going in the next 20 years? This is a 30-minute seminar with a 15-minute Q&A to follow. Dave Kinney — Dave Kinney is an appraiser and publisher of the Hagerty Price Guide. During the past 25 years, Kinney has owned hundreds of collector vehicles and has participated in the sale, repair, and valuation of all types of automobiles, although he is always drawn back to the Studebaker Avanti, of which he’s owned well over 100. Dave is based in Northern Virginia and is an Accredited Senior Appraiser, well-versed in the BMW marque. Greg Ingold – Greg Ingold manages Hagerty’s transactional database and although his personal interest focuses on the American muscle car market, both old and new, he has come to know the BMW market well in his role as associate editor of the Hagerty Price Guide. Topics for discussion will include: – state of BMW car values in the current marketplace. – how current design decisions made by BMW are affecting the collector market. – what models & trims are going up and down in value. – where Hagerty sees the BMW-brand going in the next 20 years. – examples of recent and unexpected auction sales. – how the cancellations of on-site, in-person auctions have effected the market.

Proposal: Article VIII Annual Elections update

National Capital Chapter Proposed Bylaw Change of Article VIII- Elections, dated June 18, 2020

Proposal: Article VIII Annual Elections update

The NCC elected officers are proposing changes to the annual elections process as defined in our corporate charter and bylaws. The board believes these changes helps streamline and adds transparency to the election process by removing manual intervention by:

1) eliminating the voting process only when all 4 chapter officer nominees are running un-opposed after the nomination period ended, and

2) holding all annual elections online, and

3) eliminating the option of voting by US Mail and/or in person at Annual Meeting.

Current Bylaw

Article VIII. ELECTIONS Section 1 – Annual Elections

The officers of the Chapter shall be elected by ballot by majority vote of the members present at the annual meeting and all other media approved by the Board. Voting shall be on a slate proposed by the nomination committee; write-ins are not permitted.This committee should be chaired by the most recent past president available. Nominations must be made with the written consent of the nominee. The ballot and candidacy statements shall be published in the Chapter newsletter and/or website before the elections at the annual meeting. Ballots may be cast by U.S. mail, any electronic medium approved by the board of directors, or in person at the annual meeting. If any one individual on the first ballot does not receive a majority vote, the candidate with the lowest number of votes shall be dropped, and another ballet ballot shall be run off between the remaining candidates. This procedure shall be followed until one candidate receives a majority vote. The nominating committee’s slate shall consist of one or more nominees for each office. Nominations for elected officers shall remain open until the ballots are taken for count at the annual meeting. The newly elected officers shall officially assume duties of office immediately after validation and acceptance of the ballots by the counting committee.
