AS7074,

I did a search using Google... (how did we find things before Google?)

I typed in Camping Club By-laws...

One link I found was a club in Maryland, Called the Starcrabbers RV Club...

Here is their Link: http://starcrabbers.com/by.laws.htm

Not to suggest these are By-Laws you should consider... but these may help with idea's of the structure of an RV Club.

Let your mind wander... your Cyber fingers wander in your favorite search engine... to learn more about the many RV Clubs across the country.

Good Luck !

AS7074, Why not come to the rally at Myrtle Beach in October. Anybody that is interested in a Georgia chapter can get together and discuss it and enjoy the SE group rally.
You will meet a great bunch of people and have a great time. I am interested in a Georgia chapter but it should only be formed to allow all of us to enjoy the camping life style that we enjoy.

My DW and I might be interested in joining a GA chapter, but we need more information. How much is membership in the Heartland Owner's Club, for example. How do we join? Are there any other requirements? Please send me an email at jimcase717@gmail.com with any information.

Thanks.

Message to all Heartland owners especially the ones in Georgia,

Say Hi to the new Georgia Chapter Leader, Randy Allen. Randy has joined the ranks of the exclusive people who have stepped up to make things happen verses just letting things happen. Randy brings a lot of experience to the position as he has attended some of our biggest and most successful rallies that have been put on in the eastern region.

Thank you Randy.

Dave Yocum,
Eastern Regional Director

I am so excited for Georgia. Randy and Santha are great folks. I've attended several rallies with them and like Dave, I too feel they'll do a great job. Georgians - look forward to your first state rally sometime in 2011.

Congratulations Randy and Santha. I'm very happy for you. Dave, neighboring chapter leaders and I are here for you. We'll help you through the learning curve.

Hello Mike,
You mentioned that when you joined that they put you in the No. Fl. Chapter. My state does not have a chapter and we were not put in any others. I am wondering who put you in the chapter and how that works.
Thanks for any info.

I read your post and I will try to answer your question. Jim Beletti tries to move people from one state that does not have Heartland Owners Club representative IE....a chapter leader to a nearby state that does have one so the folks can stay informed as to what is happening and news in the area that may pertain to them. If you would like to represent your state volunteer to be a Chapter Leader for your state. It is not a hard or demanding job and you will get tons of help from Jim, myself, as well as other area Chapter Leaders.

I hope this helps explains how things work.

Questions? PM me anytime.

Dave

Hi Nita, Mike and others,

Dave has it correct, all states and provinces that had club members but no chapter, had their members moved to a nearby chapter. This has worked out great as we've had a few people attend rallies in their temporary host state/province since they began hearing directly from a chapter leader.

In the case of GA, as soon as we make a tweak that allows GA to be selected as one's chapter, we'll move all GA members to that chapter.

Jim

Thanks Jim and Dave for the info.

Jim, how do I know what chapter I have been assigned to?

We are very close to? TN/Ga line, we love to camp in Pigeon Forge and also Florida a bit. TN would work for us, as long as we stay inside the camper during the AL/TN football game, I might get Wayne to take off the Alabama hat during the rallies. LOL

Dave, Thanks for the info, I am probably a bit new to be leading a chapter and I only saw 1 other couple from Alabama at the rally, we did end up meeting them by accident on the bus to the Opry, that was a happy surprise.

Nita,

As Jim has said many times over the Chapter Leader position is NOT a life time commitment. Believe it or not we were all new at this at one time. I for one did not know how to be a leader but with Jim's help and others I think now I can handle the job. If you want to try it let Jim or me know and we can make it happen.

Congratulations Randy & Santha !!

Although Karen and I are Full-Time RV'ers, we do hub out of the Atlanta area often. We have family living in Duluth Georgia & travel often to the area. We park at Jones RV Park, Norcross GA on those occasions.

Thank you for being willing to start and lead the Georgia Chapter of Heartland Owners. Reading all the posts offering help getting the chapter started, I'm sure your off to a wonderful start. Please keep Karen and I on your list of "Helpers", when we're near by we would be honored to help out, in any way we can.

Both Karen and I love attending and would enjoy the chance to l work under your leadership... to make the Rally a success. We'll keep a sharp eye out for future Georgia Rallies.

We second that emotion about how does one know which chapter/group we belong to. :confused: We split our "full timing", such as it is, between central FL and southeastern VA. Of course, if one has become a "rallyholic" :angel: I guess it makes no difference as to affiliation. That way if you see a rally you want to attend.........sign up and go!!! :cool:

Hi Dick,

You can look here (//heartlandowners.org/vbMemberManager.php?cmd=list) and see what chapter you are in. But like you said, it makes little difference for full-timers. And any member can go to any chapter rally anywhere in North America. What chapter you are a member of, means that's the chapter you're hear from, from time to time. Anyone wanting to belong to another active chapter can send me an email or PM and I will move them. Just takes a moment to do.

Hi Randy and Santha,
It is such good news hearing about a new chapter forming, so that a rally-aholic such that I am can anticipate attending another rally:cool:. Congratulations on stepping forward, and let us know if and when we can help in any way. We feel like kin to the Georgia chapter as our home campground with C2C is Southern Trails in Unadilla. We plan on spending time in GA every year.
