    HOW THE CONFERENCE WORKS

    E The International Conference of Sports Car Clubs, Inc. is an association of

    independent sports car clubs in the United States and Canada. It is a regulatory and

    administrative organization providing the basic guidelines for organized sports car

    racing in its membership area.

    E It is the goal of Conference to supervise and regulate competition in accordance with

    the wishes of the majority of the Conference license holders.

    E Clubs which sponsor and conduct races are represented on the ICSCC Executive

    Board, which deals with scheduling, general regulations, financial matters and basic

    Conference policy. All clubs are represented on the Contest Board. Member clubs

    are represented on the Executive Board. Both boards are responsible for racing

    regulations and car specification rules. The Executive Board designates which

    sections of the Competition Regulations are the primary responsibility of the Contest

    Board, the Executive Board, or a combination of the Contest Board and Executive

    Board. The Executive Board meets at least twice annually, in the spring and fall. The

    Contest Board meets once a year, at the Fall Meeting.

    E Every Conference driver is represented in affairs of ICSCC through his/her clubs

    representative on the Contest Board. Drivers are involved at the club level in

    formation of the meeting agenda, and representatives participate in Contest Board

    meetings under specific instructions which assure that their drivers opinions are

    reflected in discussion and voting. Each club has one vote on the Contest Board for

    every driver licensed with the club.

    E The President of Conference is elected every year at the Fall Meeting by the

    Executive Board. The incumbent is automatically nominated for a second term. The

    nomination and election meeting is held at a closed meeting of the Directors,

    immediately following the conclusion of all other business on the first day of the fall

    meeting. Any member club may nominate a candidate for President, which must be

    presented at the nomination and election meeting by an Executive Board

    Representative. The candidate must meet the requirements set forth in the Corporate

    By-Laws (Article III, Section 5 of the Policy and Procedures manual). If the By-Laws

    requirements are met and the candidate has been formally presented at the

    nomination and election meeting he/she will officially become a nominee. All

    nominees will be interviewed during the election meeting. At the conclusion of all

    interviews the Executive Board representatives will vote and the nominee with the

    most votes will become the next President of Conference. The chosen nominee will

    be announced as the incoming President at the ICSCC banquet. The official duties of

    the President can be found in section 3.1.2 of the Policy and Procedures manual. As

    an overview, the Presidents job is to coordinate all Conference business, appoint the

    necessary officers, preside over the Executive Board and generally expedite all

    Conference policies. (Spring 2010)

    E The Race Steward is elected annually by the Executive Board. His/Her job is to

    provide consistent interpretations of the racing regulations. He/She polices the rules

    concerning participants and sees that consistency is maintained regarding procedures

    at the various race courses. He/She also chairs the Contest Board. His/Her tenure of

    office is one year.(Spring 2010)

    E While this book is principally concerned with racing rules it also contains regulations

    which describe the organization of the Race Officials Division.
