    FWIW ... I am NOT a big Facebook user and never post to my page. BUT like it or not (and I don't really) Facebook is a great place to keep up with friends, family and things related to my passion ... motorcycles. It seems Facebook has become the new internet. So while I don't like it I do find it useful to keep current on whats going on with all things related to motorcycle and BMW's in particular. Unfortunately the world is a changing place. It seems to make sense to keep the Rally info updated and current in both places.

    I wish I still could have my Prodigy account. That was so much fun, and informative.

    Omega,

    Yes, on the Facebook MOA group page there is and active engagement to turn non members into members and a constant reminder of the benefits of being a member. The Regional Coordinators do all we can, but it also takes the actual dues paying members to spread the word about how great the MOA is. When we all work together and use all the outlets we can to be more present and prominent in social media outlets, the potential of gaining new membership increases greatly.

    But, when you leave the forum out of the loop, you do realize you are missed a valuable and loyal asset.

    Technically, the forums are a navigation page from the BMWMOA.org website, and all the information pushed on Facebook originated from the website home page; so counting the website home page as part of the forums, all information is available. That said, we still try to pull relevant information manually down to the forums from time to time.

    To get all the information on an event, like the rally in this case, all a member would have to do is click the rally link verses the forum link.

    Any Regional Coordinators here on the forum? There is a forum for Club Presidents thatís pretty much unused, Iíll bet we could group them up so they had a place to work ideas off one another

    FB isnít going anywhere......Itís free! The best we can hope for is the cross posting of all things MOA/Forum.
    Hope for the best.

    Well, Iím a RC, and Iím on the forum. I for one like forums, but they are becoming antiquated. As with my local club forum...if Iím trying to attract a new member and they visit the site and perused the forum, they would see hardly any activity. Everyone now seems to have a cell phone and is instantly connected to everything. The RCís have a closed Facebook group just for us and thatís what we use to stay in touch and bounce ideas mostly. There is no reason we couldnít have something on the forum that we could all take part of. But that is also another topic to be discussed.

    So...back to rally stuff!! Post, cross post, post cross, and let as many people know about the wonderful MOA

    Thanks for your efforts here on the forum

    I don't know where this is all headed, here is a close to 3 year old thread on the RC's- https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...inators-Wanted

    If Wes's comments are still valid, I can clean up the thread and it can continue.......If things are/have changed, we can stick a new up to date posting. A list of the RC's and contact info might help. In the Clubhouse section it's only viewable to Members.
