NAMGAR Member News
The major expense last year was the cost of printing and mailing the NAMGAR membership directory. This will be replaced by an online directory in 2017.
I have been NAMGAR’s Treasurer for four years now, and the worst part of the job for me is the annual Board meeting. As Treasurer I am responsible for recording the minutes of the meeting, and I hate this job! This year’s Board meeting was held in Solvang, California, at the GT-42 Corque Hotel
Online membership renewal is growing, but many of our members pay their dues by mailing me a check with their reminder slip. Some members write a small note on their renewal notice thanking me for doing the job. One day I received a renewal notice with a different note on the slip. It read “I don’t want to be a member of an organization where all the magazine articles and events are on the East coast!”. I was not sure how to handle this, so I passed it on to the Chairman for the official NAMGAR response.
California is the state with the most NAMGAR members, and the most cars registered. We have worked hard to have a GT on the West coast this year, so this is your chance to attend a West Coast event. I wish I could remember the name of the note writer. I would look for him at the GT to talk to him. I am planning on driving my car from Pittsburgh, and I hope to see you there. If you see me, and have questions about NAMGAR’s finances, don’t be afraid to ask. I might have an answer that will surprise you!
