At the Spearfish National Rally NorCal/NorWest voted to merge with SoCal. Southwest chapter is considering entering our merger too. Why? The success of our chapter hinges on the volunteers. In recent years the volunteer pool for leadership and rally planning has thinned to such a small core group that we are not able to function as we would hope. A merger will consolidate leadership, expenses and expand the worker pool to form a larger chapter.

So what does that mean? Jerry Scott, President of SoCal and I will be coordinating the consolidation of the two chapters with the guidance of Scott Rose, Counsel to American Coach Association. Jerry is merging our database with theirs and we will be communicating the details via email.

Here is an outline: One chapter with a new name. Consolidate rally calendar. Consolidate officers and their duties. Consolidate bank account and finances. Consolidate website. Expand rally opportunities. There are a lot of details to figure out and we are working to that end.

For now please take a look at the SoCal rally calendar and plan on attending when you can. You are always invited.

Save the date, September 1 to 4, 2019. We are planning a consolidated rally at Jackson Rancheria, Jackson CA. A beautiful RV Park in the Gold Country with plenty to do. Casino, wine tasting, fine dining, antiquing and of course, seeing your American Coach friends.

Happy travels,
