Web & Internet Committee
The ACNA Web & Internet Committee’s mission statement is to enhance the Club’s web functionality in order to attract new membership while also providing existing members with additional features and benefits. Our goal is to increase revenue to the ACNA by growing new membership and generating income from web advertising. We plan to do this through timely management of web content and the creation of a community-based members’ only section with an emphasis on all things Audi. The addition of an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed will provide real time notification of content addition to members.

Additionally, the Nominating Committee will also help in identifying nominees for ACNA Member of the Year.
The Committee will not recommend specific Board of Director candidates, but will work in concert with ACNA chapter representatives and officers to identify members who qualify for election to the Board of Directors, meeting ACNA Bylaws and Code-of-Ethics requirements. The Committee will also work to identify candidates that help ensure diversity on the Board of Directors in terms of geography, club experience, and/or other skills and experience (i.e. business, financial, auto industry, etc.) that will help strengthen the Board and ACNA in general.
For ACNA Member of the Year, the Committee will also work with ACNA chapter representatives and officers to identify members to be nominated for the award based on the criteria set forth by the Board of Directors.

The driving committee will continually strive to create a framework that allows a diverse input of ideas and enthusiasm from club members across North America to enable a standard philosophy and approach, standard teaching guides & materials, and a uniform resource base. The goal in creating this framework is to guarantee that instructor ranking, training and all aspects of student instruction are professional, consistent in their application, and appear seamless across all driving venues the ANCA conducts across North America. Finally, the National ACNA Driving Committee will insure that adequate resources are provided to all chapters and events to enable and empower quality instruction.

o Driving schools (any event requiring full ACNA insurance coverage) and technical issues involving required safety standards- Boyer
o Low speed events (not requiring full ACNA insurance coverage) including, teen driving schools, ice driving schools, rallies and other low-speed, non-track based events - Gruenler
- Appoint members from diverse backgrounds and chapters to serve on the teen and DE sub-committees.

Chapter Communications Committee
The Mission of the Chapter Communications Committee of the Audi Club North America is to promote the growth and well being of all chapters by providing a direct communication path to and between the national Board of Directors and all Chapters.
The ACNA Board of Directors needs to know the priorities and ideas of Chapters in order to assist all Chapters to grow and prosper, thereby strengthening the entire Audi Club. Chapters are the most important source of information for the Board to use in setting policies and programs to steer the Club in the direction the members desire.
Monthly Chapter Representative meetings via teleconference will enable every Chapter to assist in the management of the ACNA and give the Board of Directors input that will be useful to Chapters and Club members.
The ultimate Committee goal would be proposals developed by Chapter Representatives as a body that the Board of Directors could act upon and thereby bring Club members into the active management of the ACNA.
