Volunteer

There are lots of ways you can get involved with the KARZ Club.  

The officer positions are elected in September each year and serve two year terms.  The President and Secretary positions are up in odd years, the Vice President and Treasurer are up in even years.   In addition to the traditional officers we have many leadership positions that coordinate specific activities.  The responsibilities of each position are listed below.  Currently we have opening for two positions - VP and Secretary, contact Bob Gates if you are interested and have questions.

If your time to volunteer is more limited consider helping with any of the activities.  The Rod Run is our biggest event and we need help parking cars, setting up tents, selling t-shirts, registering entrants and tearing down.  It is easy to be in the show and be a volunteer.

Our next most labor intensive activity is grilling at the Tuesday evening Cruise-In, considering taking a week and bringing a salad or working the burger grill, contact Vickie Stites, she would love the help.

If you would like to volunteer your shop for a club meeting or garage tour contact Ken Higgs.  There are lots of ways to be involved and they are all important to the success of the club.
