Maintaining Your PCA Profile

Most of us do a good job at keeping up with the maintenance needs of our Porsches. We aren’t as good at maintaining our profile information to be current or correct in the PCA database. Most frequently, we fail to add new acquisitions and/or remove Porsches we no longer own. Incorrect or incomplete information affects the club’s ability to communicate with you and affects your ability to maximize the value of your membership. If you are not receiving any communications from the club, it is likely that we have incorrect or incomplete information in your member profile.

Please ask yourself the following:

• Have I moved? Is my current address correct?
• Have I added or sold vehicles?
• Is my email address current or correct?
• Has my phone number changed?
• Is my affiliate or family member information correct?

Please take a moment to check your PCA profile and edit where needed. It’s quick and easy to do. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or the PCA National Office.

Member Benefits

Membership has its privileges!

Porsche Club of America is the largest single independent marque car club in the world. And membership has its privileges. While it’s the cars that bring us together it’s the people, camaraderie and friendships that bring membership alive.
When you join PCA, you become a member of First Settlers Region at no additional cost for the duration of your PCA membership. Annual membership dues are just $46 and you can join for up to 3 years at a discounted rate.
First Settlers Region offers a full calendar of events each year including Drivers Education, concours, social and charity events. Our most popular events may be our four monthly breakfasts which are located throughout our geographic area. Our regular monthly breakfasts are a great opportunity to interact with other members on topics of repair, restoration, driving and all things Porsche. First Settlers members also receive Horizontally Opposed, our bi-monthly newsletter.

What Can You Do For Your Club?

I think it was President John F. Kennedy who said “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” That same inspirational question is also applicable to First Settlers Region. What can you do for your club? There are many benefits that come via a membership in PCA and the First Settlers Region, but we can enhance the value of a membership by giving back to the club Individuals and committees work hard to plan driving, social and charity events; and to recruit sponsors and items for raffles and door prizes to make these events fun, raise money for our charities and to financially breakeven.

All of this is to increase the value of your membership and to enhance your personal club experience, but it’s a tough job at times.

So how can you help? Here is a list of ways:
• Recruit a new member
• Consider serving on the board or as an officer
• Volunteer for a event committee
• Sign up and attend some events
• Advertise your business with an event sponsorship
• Donate an item from your business for an event raffle
• Secure a sponsorship or raffle item from a friend, vendor or wherever you have relationships

First Settlers Region is growing rapidly. While it’s the marque that brings us to the club, it’s the people we meet and the relationships we build that make membership a
great experience. And to come full circle, it’s the club events that bring us together. Reach out to a board member or officer to see how you can give back.

Remember to renew your membership. You’ll be glad you did!
