The CRS is governed by a Board of Governors (BOG) which consists
of the organizers from each CRS event. Membership on the BOG will begin once
the event has been accepted onto the CRS calendar and continue for the remainder
of the year the event occurs in, plus the following year. In addition to the
organizers there will be a number of other members including: the Director, Equipment
Managers, Secretary/Treasurer, Membership Officers, Competitor Liaison, Rallycross
Liaison, Press Liaison, Sponsor Liaison, Webmaster and the Stock Class Chairman.
The responsibilities of the officers are detailed as follows:
The Director will be elected by a vote of the CRS membership and shall be in
charge of the general operations of the CRS. The Director will schedule and

The SCC (Stock Class Chairman) will be responsible for the administration of

of the classes at events, and will furnish the organizers with a list of approved
Stock and GT Class competitors prior to the drivers’ meeting. The SCC
will call meetings of Stock Classes competitors to consider amendments to the
rules as necessary. The SCC shall be selected by a vote of the active Stock
and GT Class competitors. It is recommended, but not required, that the SCC
be someone not competing in Performance Stock or CRS GT Class.
The BOG shall make decisions on Calendar approval, amendments to these rules,
amounts of fees, and any other items deemed appropriate by the Director. The
BOG shall also be responsible for appointing people to fill the jobs of Equipment Manager,
Secretary, Press Liaison, Rally Membership Officer, Treasurer, Rallycross Liaison,
Rallycross Membership Officer, Rallycross Pointskeeper & Equipment Manager, Webmaster and Sponsor Liaison. The BOG will also serve as an informal forum
for the organizers to discuss items related to the organization of rallies.
For voting purposes each Rally event shall have the same number of votes as
the event’s weighting factor (1, 2 or 3), with a limit of 3 BOG votes
per competitive weekend. Rallysprint organizers will have one vote. Rallycross
organizers will have one vote for each CRS event organized. Any officers that are not organizers
will have one BOG vote. Each event will have a single point of contact for the
purposes of BOG phone or email polls. The single point of contact for each event
will designate who from his event shall be on the BOG mailing list and who will
have voting privileges at meetings. A quorum of at least 50% of the possible
votes must be present to make any decisions on rules.
While all BOG members are welcome to participate in the discussion of any issue, for voting
purposes the BOG will partition issues into three categories: “Rally”,
“Rallycross” and “Common.” The Rally and Rallycross categories will
be those issues that only relate to that specific championship (e.g., CRS-2 rules would
only relate to Rally). Issues that have crossover interest (such as budget and membership
items) will be handled as “Common.” The table below details which members of
the BOG will vote on which issues.
