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:
  • 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 us
  • 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 direction
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!

Thanks for visiting! We’ll see you out on the road!


Your National Directors Ray and Sandi Garris have challenged us all to wear our CRAZY HATs at Wing Ding this year. They have promised a one-of-a-kind reward for everyone making the effort. Join us at the CRAZY HAT Contest on Friday, Sept. 4 at 12:30 p.m. in the East Hall. We would love to see at least one from each District participating. Here are the rules outlined for this year’s event.
  • Categories – One category for all
  • Class – Individual
  • Winners for first, second and third place
  • Judging – Applause from the audience
Bring your hat and your creativity and let’s have some FUN at the contest! And if you want to have a Crazy Hat contest at your District or Region event, there are guidelines for conduct and scoring at
http://mep.gwrra.org/fun/KrazyHatGuide2013.pdf. You can use these guidelines or, like Ray and Sandi, feel free to make your own rules – whatever you do, make sure you have FUN!!
