Fall 2022 – Presidents Update
Paul Ngai, BMW CCA NJ President
It’s been nine months since I became president of the NJ BMW Chapter, and I would like to give everyone an update about our chapter. It has been a busy year, and we are starting to plan for 2023. Here’s a quick recap. Our monthly meetings have been very successful, and we typically see 40-50 members in attendance. It’s a great way for everyone to network and meet each other. If you haven’t been to one, I invite you to come to our next meeting on October 20 at Shade Tree Garage!
From our driving events, we have held 3 HPDE schools, club race schools, and an ITS (Instructors Training School). We have one more event coming up next week at Shenandoah. If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still space. Five days left to sign up!

We also held autocross events at the Somerset Patriots baseball stadium in Bridgewater, NJ. If you haven’t been to an autocross, we invite you to check it out. The final event of the 2022 season will be on October 23.
Whether it be a track event or an autocross, one thing is for sure you will be surprised by your car’s capabilities!

We have a new Social Director this year, Josephine Skwish. Some of you may recognize her in our social media apps. We held our first Cars & Coffee event in August at Panera Bread in Union, and over 150 cars showed up! Most of the attendees have shown interest in joining the club.

Last month, we were invited back to BMW NA for their Open House Cars & Coffee event in conjunction with the E30 M3 SigFest event. It was great to see many familiar faces and some new ones.
I want to thank all the board members, elected officers, volunteers, and sponsors for everything they do for the chapter. Without them, these events would not be possible. Finally, I’d like to thank our members for being loyal to the chapter and the brand and supporting us by attending events, meetings and staying active.
My goal is to continue to provide members with everything from social meets to driving events. If you have any ideas or would like to volunteer to help with the chapter, please do not hesitate. Please email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org

Hope to see you soon!
