NEW ADMINISTRATION ARRANGEMENTS
When the board was considering the new admin arrangements, we soon realised that with the growth of the club we were asking a lot for one person to do all of the race entries and membership administration. Simon has always kindly arranged holidays to fit round our races, but that isn't really fair. So we were pleased when we got a proposal from the Midland Automobile Club. Several Monoposto members (including the writer) are ex-hillclimbers, and the MAC has an excellent reputation for friendly effiicency, so we're confident that they will do the job well. We've visted their offices at Shelsley Walsh hillclimb. They have 4 permanent staff, one of whom will be the princple entry contact, so there is a good professional grounding and good backup. We look forward to working with them, and we know that they are keen for it to be a long term relationship.
We will soon be announcing the new Sporting Services Manager, who will be responsible for all other areas.
For information, here's the press release jointly issued by MRC and MAC
"MAC AWARDED MONOPOSTO CONTRACT
