There is a promotion for new members, providing them a couple nights free at one of our Airstream Parks. That is a step in the right direction. Of course if they pick the Top of Georgia, that's only saving $7 a night.

Tie-ins with sponsor parks are a great idea. There are some beautiful Airstream Parks that are invisible to white box owners. I believe we are the only WBCCI-only park, but I believe some offer discounts to members.

Okay, I know the first year registration can now be done online but that's only the first year.

I think this applies to many WBCCI members, not just the 20-40 year olds. Right now the Central Indiana Unit is beta-testing on-line renewals to get all the bugs out before we expand it to other unit websites. It's working very well, but there are a few unresolved issues matching payments with members' names. We are working on detailed instructions for unit treasurers to set up the appropriate Pay-Pal account and for unit webmasters to master the coding and plug-in necessary on the unit websites. The Executive Committee is encouraging us to continue expanding on-line renewals on unit websites.

The technology is already in place to offer on-line renewals through wbcci.org. The sticking point is the Pay-Pal fee and a business model that will accommodate the $2.65 fee per transaction. Will members need to pay a "convenience fee" or can the international organization absorb the costs, or a combination of both? Let the ECC ecc@wbcci.net, your unit, region, and international officers know what you think.

I would suspect there would be enough savings in paperwork, time, and postage to cover a fair amount of the paypal costs. Right now it looks like the treasurer of the unit is using a special receipt book. Possibly some savings could be made there. Do we really need a membership card for example? A computer printed receipt would work for me.
While I think the cost could and should be absorbed as other organizations do, I would still be willing to pay a convenience fee if that is what we have to do to get online payment in place.
I just received an e mail reminding me I needed to pay my VAC dues and could do it online. I immediately took care of it. If it had come by mail, it would have gone into the "when I get to it" pile or not seen for a month if I was traveling .It could easily be forgotten entirely as has actually happened with my International dues at least once.
