The "Membership Recruiting and Retention" program is the life blood of our organization. Why you ask? Because without members there is no organization. Within GWRRA there are many incentive programs from the National to the District level, like free memberships. Our Member Enhancement Coordinators Ben & Mary Gawrylowicz, are here to serve your Recruiting and Retention needs. Please contact them with any questions you may have. The following link is a great guide on Retention by Marty Zakrajsek, National Membership Coordinator along with other important information. Trial Membership Flyer
|Chapter Couple of the Year
The most visible part at all levels of GWRRA is the "Couple of the Year Program". Beginning at the Chapter level, this is a method of honoring couples for their commitment to the ideals of the GWRRA.
District Couples then have a choice to make. The Couple no longer has to take part in the next Selection process. They may, or may not, choose to participate in the new International selection process. We now have an International Couple from each of the Territories, we are the Northeast Territory, and all will be honored at Wing Ding. We encourage all the Chapters to honor your fellow Couples and participate in the "Couple of the Year Program". If you have any questions please feel free to email or call.

|Chapters who get involved with this program have a lot of fun with it. The intent of this plaque is to encourage Chapter visitations and travel between the District Chapters within the Michigan District. To find out more information about the "Traveling Plaque" program please contact us.
Here is a PDF file on the rules and guidelines for the Michigan District "Traveling Plaque".
Traveling Plaque is now at Chapter Z!
On Friday, November 8, Chapter Z members went to Chapter J2's Gathering and captured the plaque.
We are located out of the Indian River area and our Gatherings are held on the fourth Sunday of the month at the Wolverine Senior Center, 6554 Wolverine, MI 49799. We start with a dinner at noon and then have our Gathering immediately following. Contact the Chapter Director for more details.
Weekly Diner Rides:
We have weekly dinner rides on Tuesday evenings. We leave the Burger King 4011 Club Rd, Indian River, MI 49749 parking lot at 6 PM. The location is written on the calendar in our newsletter.

Having a good image in the public's eye is one of the main goals of our organization. Motorcyclists in general have tended to have a rough image, however GWRRA and other similar organizations are changing this image. GWRRA has a guide specifically designed to help you and your Chapter in dealing with the Public. Click on the link below to download your copy.
The motto of the GWRRA is "Friends for Fun, Safety, and Knowledge." First and foremost the GWRRA is a social organization of friends. We have an award-winning Rider Education Division to help with the "safety" aspect. We have a fantastic Leadership Training Division to help with "knowledge". In the Member Enhancement Division we have the "Fun Activities Guide" to cover the "fun". If members aren't having fun, they won't stay on as members of the GWRRA. If we lose them, they lose out on "safety & knowledge". So, there is a guidebook that provides a huge number of ideas on how we can have fun. This is a great tool for the Chapter Directors to use. It is a PDF file, but a little large in size.
