Simon Cooper has been a member of the BMW CCA since 1999, but has been a fan of BMWs since 1981 when his Dad bought an E12 520i while serving in the Royal Air Force in Germany. Simon has been active in the club’s driving events and has progressed from student to instructor in both High Performance Driving as well as our Advanced Driving Safety Skills programs. Simon has served as the chair of the the Driving Committee and has also served as an appointed and elected member of the Boston Chapter Board for eight years, most recently as president since 2012. Simon believes that the Chapter exists for the benefit and enjoyment of all our members, a group with diverse backgrounds and interests. He supports the continuation and growth of the driver education programs and social events, but would like to increase the diversity of programs and the number of participants. He is looking forward to serving again, and is honored to give back to the club that has given him great fun and many new friends.
