We’re Number One!
No, I don’t mean the Giants…but of course, we are. I mean in the PCA’s Membership Contest. We’re first in Actual Growth and still in the running (Top 5) for Factored Growth. What’s this? Well, in 1990, PCA implemented a campaign to increase membership. The campaign was successful, and almost 900 new members were enrolled. Based on this success, in 1991 PCA established a National Membership Competition to continue to stimulate growth. The award was first presented at Parade in 1992. Originally the recipient of the award was determined by a formula that equalized each region’s growth, regardless of size. In 1998, PCA added a second category to recognize the region with the highest net growth. Today the awards are known as Greatest Factored Growth and Greatest Actual Growth. The same region cannot receive both awards. The recipient clubs receive both a trophy and a cash award from PCA! What’s this mean? It means that you need to knock on the window of any Porsche you see and tell them how great it is to be a GGRer!
The Confidentiality, Security and Integrity of Your Personal Information
Just to reiterate, we (GGR and PCA) do not provide to anyone outside of PCA personal information or data about our members, their interests, their cars, their home or email addresses. Our members’ personal information is not made available for mailing lists or to businesses, even if they are involved in Porsche car related activities. It is not made available to Porsche Cars North America, Porsche, A.G., or any of its affiliate companies. We do NOT disclose any personal information about you to anyone outside of PCA, except as required by law. Our members’ personal information is used within PCA only on a need to know basis. For example, we do not provide one Regional Club with the personal information about another Regional Club or its PCA members. When we’re contacted for your info (email/phone numbers, etc.), we’ll always let you know so you can decide to contact or not.
Member badges will be provided free to all those members/affiliates who RSVP and attend “new member” social events. Otherwise, member badges are available for a small fee through Spotlight Impressions in San Mateo. The badges feature the GGR logo, your name and a convenient magnetic clasp. The cost is $12.00 for the badge plus shipping. To order your badges fill out the form on our website at www.pca-ggr.org/membership/badges and email back to Spotlight Impressions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GGR Webstore is your one-stop shop for all our logo wear – shirts, hats, bags, etc. It’s online and ready at www.pcawebstore.com/GOLDEN%20GATE. Just log in to create an account and get shopping. Show the flag!
Remember – GGR is run by member volunteers and can always use your input. I’m always heartened when I show up a little late for an event and find you guys already out there, checking us in, putting out the cones, and leading the pack on fun runs . We’re always looking for help, so let us know when you’re available. BTW, make sure we know what you’d like us to do. Go to www.surveymonkey.com/s/85KY3PS and take the survey.
Thanks to our membership we had 117 renewals this period. Here’s an idea: when you park next to that Porsche at Safeway or Whole Foods, ask him/her if they belong to GGR – if not, ENLIST THEM! On my walks/bike rides I’m always looking for that unaffiliated Porsche.
