New Region – Become A Member Today

Next Step- How to become a Phoenix AZ Solo SCCA Region member

Dear fellow Phoenix area SCCA auto crossers, 

As we have previously communicated the SCCA Board of Directors recently met, discussed, and approved the formation of the newly formed Phoenix AZ Solo Region to conduct events in Maricopa County, AZ. Our National SCCA membership Committee has now officially completed all the needed programming to operate the new region.

What does that mean for Arizona Region members?  You have the opportunity to make a few choices regarding your membership.  Your options are as follows:

  1. Move your membership to Phoenix AZ Solo Region (Region #117) as your Region of Record. Contact SCCA Membership via either email (membership@scca.com) or phone 1-800-770-2055 your request (include your SCCA member number). All your future regional dues will go exclusively to support local autocross Phoenix area activities. By taking this action you will receive a new membership card reflecting your membership in the Phoenix AZ Solo Region (note your SCCA member number remains the same). 
  2. You may of course leave your membership as is, remaining a member of the Arizona Region. Note: No part of these dues will support the local autox program. 
  3. Become a dual member, having membership, and paying dues for each Region. Contact SCCA to choose this option.  

The Steering Committee is grateful to SCCA National for affording us this opportunity for the Phoenix area SCCA solo group to function as a standalone region.  It will allow us more freedom in the areas of programing, event scheduling and most importantly control of our club’s finances. Our wish and recommendation to you regarding your future membership choice, would be of course, to have you join us in support of the new region (option 1 above). 

As a Steering Committee, we thank you for your continued support, of local solo events and look forward to a continued long and successful autox program in the valley.

Most Sincerely and looking forward to seeing you all at the next solo event, your Phoenix AZ Solo Region Solo Steering Committee.

Phoenix AZ Solo Region Formation

Dear fellow Phoenix SCCA Autox Enthusiasts:


Your Steering Committee is pleased to announce a significant change in the club’s structure. The proposed change as put forth by your Steering Committee, and submitted to the SCCA for approval, would allow the Phoenix auto cross group more needed autonomy, transparency, security and freedom in matters of both financial and policy decisions in the future.


The change is a simple one, our club is presently in the Arizona Region in combination with other SCCA motorsports groups such as the road race group. In the future, if SCCA allows the change, we would operate as an independent region to be known simply as the “Phoenix AZ Solo Region”. While the impetus for the formation of this new region is supporting autox events, this new region would also be open to other types of SCCA events provided they are viable and are done in a manner that is cooperative and not competitive with neighboring SCCA regions.


What would this proposed structural change mean to you as a member?
Great question! As far as our annual dues and event fees are concerned, little to no changes are anticipated. Event schedules, duty assignments and Steering Committee Membership would remain constant.

   
What then is gained by becoming more independent from the road racer and rally groups?
Simply two things, the ability to see that any SCCA regional membership money you as a member put into the region ONLY goes to our local solo program. Secondly, the decision-making process regarding club policies and practices would be made by local autocross members vs. a multi-group region. This will create more transparency into the workings of our local club. And two, to foster more member participation in the decision-making process of our club.


What do I need to do?
If the new Region is granted only a simple change with SCCA to move your region ofrecord from Arizona Region to Phoenix AZ Solo Region is needed.

More news to follow shortly on how you can help support this effort with SCCA.

Thank you and see you trackside soon!
