You can now voluntarily join the Brazilian VW Bay Executive Club.

On the forum we define anyone who owns a Brazilian Kombi in the UK as being part of our 'club.'  This is essentially because you are one of a unique motoring group here on British roads.  The ABVWC charge us per 'club' member to be covered by their umbrella public liability insurance, so with club member numbers now growing substantially, we are paying quite a premium for this cover, despite probably only a percentage of club members needing the facility.  In other words we are wasting money!

Further, our subscription to the ABVWC has been covered by our advertisers to date, and for that we are exceptionally grateful.  However in today's climate we can't rely on advertisers renewing with us annually, you may have noticed that some have disappeared over time.  

So in order to guarantee our ability to cover the ABVWC membership and to enable the club to pay for promotional items such as banners, postcards and the occasional prize, we've introduced a voluntary annual payment.  A number of forums do this and it appears to work well.  We're not going down the route of establishing Chairman, Treasurer etc as firstly that's somewhat outdated and secondly it is very labour intensive.  The mod team and myself have busy lives, we do all our stuff on here and at events on a voluntary basis.  Members of the forum can choose if they wish to make this voluntary payment based on how much they get from its use and whether they intend to join any of the club get-togethers at shows etc.

The voluntary annual payment is £5 per registered member and should you choose to support the site in this way, then your Cabin will change to Exec, to indicate that you are a paying supporter.

There is no change in access to current categories of the forum, so all that information remains visible to registered members.  There is however a new category, The Executive Lounge, access to which is available to those who have chosen to be a site supporter.

As stated, membership is £5 per year and starts in whichever month you choose to join.  Much like road tax, your subscription runs to the end of the 12th month after you have joined.  There will not be a specific date that your subscription starts and expires as that would prove too time consuming to administer!

However as this is a new venture, anyone joining this month (June 2013) will have their subscription valid through to 30th June 2014.

Payment can be made by bank transfer to the club account or by cheque.  Please pm me for the details.

Everyone joining the Executive Club will be allocated a unique membership number, a card indicating such and access to the Executive Lounge on the forum.
