A very good question for the MBCA national leadership. I suggest you contact national Membership chair Doug Geganto who signed the email you're referring to and ask him that question.
Edward, I never got that e-mail. Could you post the crux of it here?
I got the e-mail this morning as well. The deal runs from March 1s to March 31st 2021. Bonus 1: One additional month added to your membership for every year you renew. You can earn up to an additional 3 months of extended membership for a 3 year renewal. Bonus 2: All members who renew their membership during this promotion will be eligible to win a $50 gift card. Special Bonus: If you enroll in Auto-Renew at the same time you renew, you will automatically be entered in to the drawing for a $50 gift card. A drawing is held at every 1000 auto renew enrollment. The next drawing will be held at the 3000 enrollment mark.
Thanks, Robert. Nothing to get excited about.
"they" have sent a similar incentive e mail out in the past, the last time i renewed i think i got an extra 3 moths for renewing for 3 years. my membership is almost up, honestly thinking of letting it lapse after being a member since 1997
I attended a Zoom meeting hosted by Doug Greganto a few months back. I was a bit disappointed because the focus was nearly all on retaining and growing membership. This incentive is one of the efforts but I frankly don't think it is going to "incentivize" many who don't get what they are looking for in MBCA. Auto renew is a BIG push. Hang tags for dealers to place in cars is another push. Other subjects were pretty much glossed over. I'm not critiquing Doug's efforts - membership can be a thankless position. But I also feel the health of the club is rooted in offering an attractive product for everyone, and not just one segment or another (classic or diesel or whatever).
