SCCA Announces New Membership Drive Contest

TOPEKA, Kan. (March 12, 2010) -- Introducing new members to SCCA has never been more lucrative to current SCCA faithful, with the new SCCA Membership Drive and Contest. There are two parts to the contest, one for individual members and one for Regions.

"Membership is the lifeblood of our organization, and current SCCA members and Regions now have some great additional incentives to bring new members in, and possibly welcome some old friends back to the organization," SCCA VP of Member and Region Services Colan Arnold said.

For each new member referral, SCCA members now receive $10 in "SCCA Gold." This form of new SCCA currency can be applied toward membership dues, licensing fees, merchandise or event entry fees through the SCCA National office (such as Tire Rack National Solo events, the Runoffs or the Convention). There is no limit to the amount of SCCA Gold a member can accrue and it will automatically be credited to the membership record of the member.

Additionally, for each new member referral, a member's name will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing. The awards are as follows:

First Place: Skip Barber Racing School

Second Place: $1,500 Tire Rack Gift Certificate

Third Place: $500 SCCA Merchandise Gift Certificate

Regions are eligible for rewards based on an overall increase in their total membership and their membership retention rate. Region goals are set at a growth rate of two percent and a retention rate of 80 percent annually.

Rewards Rewards are offered for four levels of success:

Level One: Achievement of two percent growth: Region receives $20 in SCCA Gold for each member (Individual and SafeRacer First Gear) and $30 in SCCA Gold per Family Membership above the 2009 membership levels in each category.

Level Two: Achievement of two percent growth and 80 percent retention: Same SCCA Gold amounts as Level One, plus a discount of five percent on all 2011 event sanction fees (excluding insurance and late fees).

Level Three: Achievement of 10 percent growth and 80 percent retention: Same SCCA Gold amounts as Level One, plus a discount of 10 percent on all 2011 event sanction fees (excluding insurance and late fees).

Level Four: Achievement of 20 percent growth and 80 percent retention: Same SCCA Gold amounts as Level One, plus a discount of 15 percent on all 2011 event sanction fees (excluding insurance and late fees).

The top 10 referring members and top 10 Regions in new member and retention percentage will be recognized monthly in Inside Line and SportsCar Magazine. To be eligible for the member rewards, a member must be in good standing through December 31, 2010. Regions must also be in good standing to be eligible for rewards.

An individual is recognized as a "new" member if they have never previously belonged to SCCA or have not been a member in the six months prior to the date of the new membership. A new member with a corresponding family or spouse membership counts only as one new membership for the contest.

New members may join one of two ways, either online or through a mail-in or fax-in form. Online, applicants may click on the "Join Now" button at www.scca.com and submit the online application. To obtain a paper form or membership brochure, contact SCCA's Member Services Department at (800) 770-2055. For a current member to receive credit for the Membership Drive and Contest, the new member must include the referring members name and membership number on either the online application or the mail/fax-in form.

Full details of the Membership Drive and Contest are available at www.scca.com/documents/membership/SCCA Membership Contest Rules R3.pdf.
