If you contact International here is the person whom you should take to...she'll take good care of you:
Membership Director, Deb Mann
, ph. 937-596-5211
Or if you want to join the 4CUnit, contact me and I'll help you pronto!
Here's a little more information...
As stated above the International portion of the dues is $65...
Each unit has its own unit dues...ours is just $1/year. Yup...$1. So the total for the 4CU is $66.
Membership runs from 1 Jan to 31 Dec BUT
if you join after 1 July of any year, then your official membership begins the NEXT calendar year and you get the rest of the current year as a "bonus."
You can request a specific number if you wish. If it is available they will assign it to you. If you do not care, they will assign a number at random and send you the red numbers for your trailer. You are NOT required to put the numbers on your trailer...and many of us don't...they call us "baldies." However, if you attend a regional or international WBCCI event they may require you to display your numbers prominently because that's how they keep track of everybody. The number stays with you, not the trailer. So if you sell and buy another, your number moves with you.
Once you are a member of any unit, you may join any other unit as an associate (or affiliate) of that Unit. This is helpful if you want to be in the loop and on their mailing list, etc, so you'll know about their events. You may join any unit you wish...it does not have to be in your geographic area, though if there is a group you like in your area, I'd suggest that.
Let me know if you have any more questions and I'll do my best to help, no strings attached.
