Attached please find the 2017 National Director’s Report for the 96th International Convention that was held in Indianapolis this past month. This report was written by your Senior Vice President, Don Schleuse.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding this report, just give me a call,  503-530-0166.
Another important issue is the vote on the Remodel Program.  If your chapter is having a rally in the next few months, ask your members who have not voted to fill out a ballot, put all the ballots in ONE envelope and mail to the accounting firm that will be shown in the instructions in the magazine.  You may photocopy the ballot that will be in the September, October, and November Family Motor Coaching Magazine. Also, you may print it off the FMCA website; . Remember, only ONE ballot per F number may be submitted.
Have you registered for the September Business and Planning Meeting?  It is being held at the Cowlitz County Event Center from September 26 – 28, 2017.  Any questions?  Call or email the Northwest Area Secretary, Bobbi Radford. or  206-714-1976
Happy travelling, enjoy the nice weather!

TO Northwest Area Presidents, National Directors, Alternate National Directors, and Delegates

Good Afternoon!

Attached please find the minutes of the Annual General Meeting held in Longview, WA on April 11, 2017.    The minutes will be posted on the Northwest Area website, soon.

At the meeting, the delegate chose   “MILLING AROUND COOS BAY “ , as the theme for the 2018 Northwest Area Rally to be held at the Mill Hotel & Casino on Coos Bay, OR,  June 21 – 24, 2018.    We are now asking any Northwest Area members to submit artwork for the program book cover and the rally pin.  I ask that you share this information with your chapter members and ask them to send their ideas to me at .

After the meetings, we were able to secure transportation to Rochester, Washington’s Lucky Eagle Casino by bus on Wednesday, June 21, 2017. A $10 slot credit and $5 food credit will be given to each person going on the bus. Sign ups are being taken by email to your Northwest Area Secretary, Bobbi Radford, on a first come, first serve basis.  There are only 41 seats on the bus; therefore, please get this information out, as soon as possible, to your chapter members.  Check out the Northwest Area website, for other exciting information coming up! 

For those thinking about attending the 96th International Convention in Indianapolis in July, please contact Bobbi Radford at the email address above.  We still need Temporary Delegates to represent chapters that do not have members attending. In addition, we have arranged a campground the night before we caravan into the grounds.  As you will recall, from previous emails, anyone attending the convention with our group is invited to come with us to Cincinnati; stay in the FMCA campground for 3 nights, tour the National Office and have lunch with the staff.  It will be a fun extension to the convention!

If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call (503-530-0166) or email me.

Once again, I would like to thank you all for your support and friendship!
