Membership Enhancement Program
"Lead Like You Ride"
Updated: July 20th, 2015
Thank you for visiting the Membership Enhancement Program
pages!The purpose of the Membership Enhancement Program is to
ensure that GWRRA members at every level in the organization
have an enjoyable experience while participating in the many
opportunities GWRRA provides. To make a long story short…we
want you to have FUN!
We all joined GWRRA because of our love of motorcycling, and
that’s certainly a primary focus of the organization. And
our many Chapters around the globe contribute to the joy of
riding by connecting us with like-minded individuals and
creating a network of family so that—no matter where you
go—you always have friends nearby. Imagine having a
worldwide family that is just waiting to welcome you home,
wherever that may be—it’s a great feeling!
Our GWRRA events, from the Chapter level all the way up to
Wing Ding, are designed to provide everyone with FUN
opportunities that include exciting rides, social gatherings
and educational opportunities.
And that that feeling of family, of belonging, of more
opportunities to have FUN…that is what the Membership
Enhancement Program is all about!
Our goals for the Membership Enhancement Program are to:
While the Chapter Directors are known as the “FUN
Directors”, our Chapter Membership Enhancement Coordinators
can support the “FUN Directors” by becoming the “FUN
Experts”. They are the folks you can talk with about ideas
for increasing the FUN in your Chapter life—and don’t be
surprised if you end up becoming more involved as a result!
Remember – the more you participate, the more FUN there is
to be had!
- Participate with Region, District, and Chapter directors
to assist in creating the FUN portion of GWRRA’s events
- Ensure that we stay in touch with our current members and
have our MEP representatives at every level take the time to
really get to know our GWRRA family members better—the
better we know one another, the more FUN we can have!
- Contact new and prospective members to give them
information about GWRRA and encourage them to have FUN with
- Track successful FUN ideas and share them with MEP staff
at every level of the organization
- Provide information to GWRRA leadership to assist them in
planning and making informed decisions about GWRRA’s
Thanks for visiting! We’ll see you out on the road!
