2013 NEWMAR KOUNTRY KLUB BOARD MEETING - IMPORTANT NEWS!
On May 17, 2013 the Newmar Kountry Klub Board of Directors held their annual meeting at the Newmar Corporate Headquarters in Nappanee, IN. Since the last International Rally in Gillette, WY in June, 2012 we have updated the Newmar Kountry Klub Officer’s Manual. At our 2013 International Rally in DuQuoin, IL the updated NKK Officer’s Manual will be distributed to our Officers.
There was one major change to the Directives section of our By-Laws which affects all our membership. The NKK Board of Directors unanimously approved a change in our policy about invited guests at rallies. The one per calendar year requirement was removed. However, there will be a waiting period from the rally announcement before the guest may sign up, to allow our members first choice to sign up. The length of the waiting period will be determined by the Region, State/Provincial or Chapter Rally Host. The guest registration must note the member who is bringing them in as a guest.
The second part deals with the International Rally. Guests may attend the International Rally at the discretion of the International Directors. The 2013 International Rally is open to guests so if you wish to bring a guest with you to DuQuoin, IL please have them register before the deadline of May 31, 2013. Be sure they note on their reservation form the name and Klub number of the member bringing them in as a guest. We would love to show our guests what NKK is all about, how much fun we have and expose them to our wonderful product. We are going to have fourteen 2014 units on display.
