Board Member Candidates

Sunil Karve

2024 will mark my 10th year as a member of the Audi Club of North America. In that time I’ve enjoyed all ACNA the club and the Georgia chapter has to offer, from breathtaking destination drives to being trackside at the much-missed Audi Sport Experience. I feel its high time to give back to help maintain and grow the chapter for long-time members and the next generation of Audi brand fans alike. Vote here >>

Al Caproni

I have owned a total of seven Audis, starting back in 2000. Today I drive an RS5 Sportback and an S3, both of which are a lot of fun. I have served for two years as the Secretary of the Board, assisting with technical compliance issues for the Chapter and volunteered for a number of drives, including QDM and others. In my professional life, I am a business, tax and estate planning attorney. I would be happy to continue to serve on the Board.

Will Bracker

I’ve enjoyed driving with the Audi Club for a few years now and am looking for an opportunity to give back for the many pleasant drives, great meals, and fund rivers I have met. I’ve been in sports cars for many years, but am a relatively new concept to the Way of Quattro – long story short, I drove a Turoed 2018 RS5 during the pandemic on a “get out of the house” day drive, and the rest is history. 

I’ve served on and led a number of volunteer boards in the past in many different roles – I’m happy to put that experience to use for the Club. Vote here >>

Jim Machul

My name is Jim Machul. I am self-nominating to extend my board of directors seat for the next year. I am currently planning logistics and hospitality for the club’s monthly drives. I also am part of the QDM committee and a regular drive leader. I have owned 10 Audis over the past 20 years and currently drive a 2022 Q5 Prestige S Line. My hobbies include shifter kart racing and attending sports car racing events. I recently accepted my dream opportunity to work for Atlanta Motorsports Park which incorporates my 25 years of professional accounting and operations experience with my passion for racing. I look forward to the opportunity to continue with Audi Club Georgia to provide new and exciting drive events in the year to come. Vote here >>

Liam O’Marah

I have been a member of the club since I came to the States in 2016. I have already undertaken the role of managing the club website and social media (when time permits). I rebuilt the club website in 2022 and manage the content, hosting, and general site health. Outside of the club, I work in corporate marketing and head the digital team for a $1B SaaS company, based here in Atlanta. We have two Audis in our car family, a 2021 TTRS and a 2020 Q3.

Alli Gantt

I’m Alli, also known to many of you as “Alli At Audi.” My journey with Audi started in 2016 when I walked into my local Marietta dealership for a job interview. Along the way I’ve fallen deeply in love with the brand, met some incredible friends & clients, and developed a strong passion for driving these incredible cars bearing the four rings. My first club event was QDM 2019 which I attended as a sponsor. I joined ACNA immediately that night after returning from my first mountain drive. I knew I had found my people! As my career with Audi has progressed, naturally so has my interest in doing more within the club community. Through the many hats I’ve worn at Audi Marietta I’ve been able to gain experience in sales & marketing, social media management, and event coordination. I’ve seen firsthand how exciting it is for new Audi owners to learn about the club and its events. I would love to take on a more active role in cultivating more of those relationships and sharing my experience for the betterment of our club.  Outside of work I’m an avid motorsport enthusiast and get out to as many track days and mountain drives as I can. As a Georgia native, I recognize how lucky we driving enthusiasts really are to live in an area with so many excellent tracks and roads close to home. I would be fully committed to bringing as many driving events to reality as possible and would be thrilled to share my enthusiasm for this sport I love so much with others.  I would be completely elated for the opportunity to serve as your board member to learn, advocate and support in any way I can to foster a thriving chapter for us.
