    which chapter to join?

    we are full timers and are looking into joining the HOC. out domicile state is South Dakota- I didn't see a chapter for SD- not sure which state to claim as ours.

    any suggestions from other full timers. our residence was in Indiana but I don't want to register there.

    thanks

    South Dakota currently does not have it's own Chapter as no one has stepped forward to volunteer to be the Chapter Leader. If there is no Chapter Leader a state will default to an adjacent state until such time as a Chapter Leader is recruited. The default chapter for South Dakota is Minnesota in the North Central Region.

    However, a HOC member can belong to any Chapter they wish regardless of domicile or address. Members may also attend any rally they want to regardless of Chapter affiliation. Selection of home chapter can be based on whatever criteria is important to the member: some choose a chapter based on what part of the country they lived in during their working lives: for some, it's where their kids live: for some, it's where they will be during rally season. The choice is up to you.

    Keep it simple and just join the N. Texas chapter. We did and attend rallies all over the US. The previous post pretty much sums it up. Let us know when and where you sign up so we can welcome you to the family.
    If I'm not mistaken, your HOC# and date will automatically be added to your signature. Have a great day.

    Haha, Frank, I was just thinking the West Texas Chapter could use some "ringers". We'd love to have them!

    We would love to have you but as others have said pick one and then go to any rally that you are near.

    Just as long as you are an HOC member that is Great!!!!!!!!!!!!
    As a full timer....if you spend more time in one location vs another due to weather or what ever...then select the Chapter within the state you spend the most time...otherwise....it really doesn't matter....this is not a competition from one chapter to another...It's a RV Family and those in it are like minded of enjoying the Heartland product....so select from your heart and all is good....
    Safe travels and hope to meet you at a future rally....
