Treasurers resumes


Dear CNYPCA Members,

I am honored to have been nominated to serve our region as Treasurer for 2015-2017.

I want to tell you about myself and my qualifications for the position of Treasurer of CNYPCA.

My husband Ed and I joined the Porsche Club of America in 1999 when we purchased our first Porsche, a yellow 1987 944S. We still own that car which is now used mostly for Driver’s Education events. Our other Porsches include a 1986 928 and a 1995 968. We also own an Audi S5 which I have tracked once.

My current track car when not driving the 944S is a blue Mustang Cobra convertible.

We enjoy participating in many CNY and other regions’ events such as Driver’s Education, autocross, rally, concours, the charity auction, tours, tech sessions, and other social gatherings. I am currently a Driver’s Education national instructor. In the past several years, Ed and I co-host the annual SVRA vintage race weekend CNY picnic at Watkins Glen. I have also served as Registrar for Zone One which covers the 18 or so regional clubs in the northeast and Canada.

I have also been active in the Glen Region Sports Car Club of America where I served as Treasurer. As Treasurer I oversaw an annual operating budget of $300,000. My responsibilities included managing all aspects of the club’s financial records including races, track rental, autocross, banquets, rallies, donations, charitable contributions, insurance, receipts and disbursements, and investments utilizing Quickbooks computer software.

In my professional life, I retired after 30 years in law enforcement to change careers to become the Director of the Emergency Communications Center for Tompkins County. After 7 years, I retired again and now work for a not for profit transportation company for senior and disabled persons.

Thank you for your consideration,

Lin Hurd




Bruce is the current Treasurer and has served CNY for the past 2 years. He is particularly well suited for the position as he has been a CPA for 35 years. After graduating from Cornell University with BS and MBA

degrees, he worked in his chosen field since 1977 and opened his own firm in LaFayette 20 years ago.

Bruce is a 10-year PCA member who grew up in CNY. Married with two grown children, he is an admitted “motorhead”, with a broad-ranging interest in automobiles, and is most proud of his beautifully-prepared 1984 944. He spent many hours bringing this car back to prime condition. His interest in cars began before junior high, racing karts in high school and getting his first motorcycle at 15 and still owning his 1968 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle purchased in college. This background, and his 2004 acquisition of a very rough 944, prepared him for his involvement in PCA.

Bruce enjoys many of the events CNY offers particularly driver’s

education which he has participated since 2005, concours, social

events including planning & hosting the summer CNYPCA picnic’s with Sue Penny the past 2 years, and especially meeting and interacting with our CNY members as well as those from other PCA regions. He is a firm believer in “It’s not just the cars, it’s the people.”

He also summarizes the accounting and prepares the Zone 1 tax return.

Bruce states that he would like to serve CNY as Treasurer for the

next 2 years.
