Family Motor Coach Association chapters display year-round charitable spirit by donating canned goods, helping to build homes, assisting with disaster recovery, and collecting toys for disadvantaged children.
FMCA recognizes more than 475 chapters across the United States and Canada. Many of them encompass specific or general geographic regions. Others consist of FMCA members who own a particular type, brand, or model of RV. And still others are based on a common interest, such as music, sports, coach conversions or amateur radio.
Other special-interest groups served by FMCA RV chapters include handicapped RVers, single RVers, golfers, NASCAR fans, and gaming aficionados, as well as service-related groups such as Habitat for Humanity.
One of the greatest benefits of chapter membership, in addition to lasting friendships, is the exchange of information that such involvment provides. How else could you meet so many diverse people, all of whom share your interest in the exciting and rewarding RV lifestyle?

It's no wonder chapter membership is considered one of FMCA's most rewarding benefits.
In addition to FMCA's area rallies, hundreds of chapters hold smaller-scale rallies and activities throughout the year. These gatherings are frequently held on weekends, and they are often organized locally, so long trips aren't necessary.
Each chapter of RV owners develops its own personality and ways to have fun. Often, chapters hold gatherings in conjunction with a notable event or attraction that chapter members can enjoy in addition to the traditional rally activities.
Anyone with a RV who is not an FMCA member is welcome to attend most rallies. Some rallies, however, have limited space and require reservations.
Here are a few ways to get in on the fun:
The best way for FMCA members to have input into the operation of the association is through membership in a chapter. Each FMCA chapter has its own bylaws and officers. One of the officers must be a national director. That person represents the chapter on the national Governing Board, which elects FMCA's 14 national officers, adopts the annual budget and approves policies of the association.
