Motorhoming | Family Motor Coach Association
Family Motor Coach Association has two elected bodies: an Executive Board and a Governing Board.
The Executive Board is composed of 14 national officers (president, senior vice president, secretary, treasurer and 10 area vice presidents) and the immediate past president, who serves in an advisory capacity.
The duties of the Executive Board are:
to act for the Governing Board on all ordinary matters between the Governing Board's regular meetings;
to approve specific member and volunteer policies and procedures;
to review and approve budgets;
to exercise fiscal oversight;
to engage in strategic planning for the organization.
The Governing Board consists of the 14 elected national officers and elected national directors from each FMCA chapter.
The Governing Board meets during the period of the Annual Membership Meeting, at specific FMCA international conventions. During this meeting all important issues related to FMCA are discussed and voted on. The duties of the Governing Board are:
- to adopt Bylaws and specific policies of the association;
- to adopt the annual budget;
- to enforce the Constitution, Bylaws FMCA's Code of Ethics;
- to elect the four nationally elected officers — president, senior vice president, secretary and treasurer
Area vice presidents
FMCA has divided North America into nine geographic areas and one "International" area. FMCA has more than 500 active chapters throughout these 10 areas. (The International Area consists of special-interest chapters not bound by geographic area.)
Each FMCA chapter has its own officers. One of the officers must be a national director. That person represents the chapter on FMCA's Governing Board. Each national director has one vote as a member of the board.
Each FMCA area is presided over by an area national vice president who is elected by the national directors of the chapters in that area.
The best way for a member to have input into the operation of the association is through chapter membership.
