  1. PM me your email address and I’ll have someone from Verizon reach out and get it corrected. Sorry for all the issues you are having.
  2. I think this post and others attacking staff members John and Pam are the big reason why you don’t see them and other staff and executive board members post here often. Not sure why you are appalled or surprised. The point of Jon’s response was to respond to your accusations that staff went “rogue” and changed the name of the publication. In the end, the executive board approved of the proposed name. That is their purpose- to represent membership and decide policy for staff to follow. I’m sure you understand why membership doesn’t vote on every decision. You have questioned staffs owning of RVs. Not sure why that is relevant. Same as me saying you couldn’t possibly have a respectful opinion about the magazine name or this new proposed article because you aren’t an editor or writer. The executive board and governing board all own qualifying units. They are the ones who set policy and direction. Staff executes. For your information, Pam Kay does own a motorhome. She has been a family member of FMCA for a long time. She has edited , produced and written your magazine for over 30 years. I would match her knowledge of RVs up with anyone. We just had over 2,600 units attend our Perry convention, which is the largest event since 2011. We had a nice turnout of non-motorhome units. I can almost guarantee that not one attendee who owns a motorhome had a “watered” down experience. There were as many seminars as before pertaining to motorhomes. Will be the same with the magazine redesign.
  3. Our team has been working to bring the FMCA app to Apple devices. If you have an iPhone or iPad, we need your help to beta test. The Apple store has a unique way to test beta apps, which requires you to download an external, free app called TestFlight. With TestFlight, you’ll be able to test the FMCA app, and your feedback will be sent straight to our IT Team. If interested, please sign up via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JX27B8Q. Once you sign up, FMCA will e-mail you testing instructions. Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. Thanks for sharing your experience! Glad it is working well for you.
  5. You mean the home page of the new website? Just getting clarification before trying to answer your concern.

    Thank you sir. A little boy. As you can tell from my post times, sleep is hard to come by!
  7. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    I totally agree with this. And I think the proposal will be made to allow it.
  8. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    Jeff, We had a big bright red box on the front of the magazine saying important member vote inside for three months in a row. We blasted every member with an email record to let them know. It was posted on social media several times. On the forums. Front and center on the website. The top RV websites and blogs picked it up and spoke about it. There was a special presentation in Chandler to let members here about it. Every member was given the same information that a chapter member was. How else do you suggest we make members aware about future votes? I can't think of any other possible way.

    Are you Tom Crowley by chance? The president of AIM? https://www.aimclub.org/AIM-Officers

    Please forward me all emails you have sent FMCA to csmith@fmca.com. Please include your name and phone number, I will make sure someone from Verizon contacts you.
  11. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    Where did you get your 90% of trailer votes came from chapter members? Please refrain from posting guesses as actual fact.
  12. I normally only post to offer clarification and insight on issues being discussed. I have to chime in here. Comparing FMCA welcoming all RVs to social issues like sexual orientation is one of the most absurd things I have ever read. If this thread continues to go sideways I will shut it down myself.
  13. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    We have been working on the new website for close to a year. Was going to be done whether a vote was out or not.
  14. Thank you everyone! Huge help to have members help us test. Can't wait for you to see the new website.
