Attention Milwaukee Region members! As you may know, Milwaukee Region is currently holding elections for its Board Of Directors. I am campaigning as a candidate for the Board Of Directors.
Many of you who are Soloists and PDX participants know me. For those that may not know me, please review my Election Bio. My volunteer efforts for the club have been recognized locally and nationally with several service awards.

I have a passion for our club driven by an interest in making it more fun to be involved.
The region’s motto is "FAST FUN FOR EVERYONE". I want to keep that spirit going.
We need to get new people involved in the operation of the club. I may be new to board elections, but my talents have been recognized over the past six years.
Jeff Cashmore, 2010 Wuesthoff Award recipient, has commented on my efforts:
"Rob Bedelis has been an important part of our region’s Solo leadership for many years. As our equipment manager he's been involved in every single aspect of our sport. He was instrumental in designing the new Solo bus and went above and beyond when it came time to modify it. Rob has the required skill set, works well with others and is motivated to help make the region better than ever."
