Hi Forum Folks:
I am going to take a moment to wish you all a very blessed, prosperous and safe New Year. A brief report on the State of the Club is due also.
1. We instituted a new Dealer Plan offering a 6 month free membership in the USCA to each new sidecar owner. In the short time since the plan was put into action we have seen 9 new members due to this plan. Not bad for a plan that was suggested at the Rally in Hotchkiss. As best I can figure out the plan was implemented about Sept. 1. So in less than 4 months we gained 9 new members.
2. We also started to work on new insurance at Hotchkiss. We needed insurance that covers the Board of Directors for liability but also we need a plan that covered us for liability for our regional and national rallies. To this point we have used the insurance that was provided through BMW Motorcycle Owner of America. It had to be instituted each time we needed it. The new policy covers every USCA event - anywhere - anytime.
3. At Hotchkiss I convinced Jim DeJarnatt to take over as Director of Advertising for the Sidecarist. Jim has come up with some great new ideas and has seen great results.
4. The last thing we have worked on this year is the Constitution and Bylaws. Al Olme and team put countless hours into revisions and all that is left to have the Board approve the changes.
