IFMR-NA Presidents Newsletter - December 2012
Attached is the December issue of the IFMR-NA Presidents Newsletter, which includes the following topics:
* Calendar of Coming Events
* Council of IFMR P/DG's named to help raise awareness
* On-line dues payments prove popular, spur membership growth
* IFMR's 'PolioPlus' Bob Mutchler cited for his community service
* IFMR-NA now on FACEBOOK
* IFMR merchandise now available for orders
* More IFMR-NA events planned for 2013
* DG Chris Jones (D7680) rides a GoldWing to visit his clubs
While on-line credit card payments have become the most popular way to pay IFMR dues, now used by 3/4ths of new and renewing members, overall dues payments continue to lag. Despite several reminders by email and in the newsletter, fewer than half of current IFMR-NA members have paid their 2012-13 dues so far. If you're one of these 'dues delinquents', please take time right now to go on-line to www.IFMR-NA.org, pay your 2012-13 dues, and update your member information. If you're unsure about whether you've paid your dues or not, email IFMR-NA membership director Jean Dores (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she'll double-check the records for you.
This has been a good year for IFMR-NA. Let's make it an even better year in 2013. With your participation and help, we can do it!

IFMR-NA President's Newsletter - October 2012
October 2012 Newsletter, which includes the following topics:
Coming IFMR Events
New IFMR Caps, Shirts & More
IFMR Events at OBX and Smoky Mountains Draw Members Far & Wide
We've managed to recapture most of the IFMR photos that had been part of the old IFMR-NA.org website. Ride Guide Don Theile and several other long-time IFMR riders are reviewing the photos, identifying people, adding some captions, and organizing the photos so we can add them to the Picasa web gallery which has been added to the new IFMR-NA.org website. If you'd like to help with that effort or have old photos from the early days of IFMR, please contact Don (email@example.com) or me and let us know of your interest or what photos you have.
If you are planning an event in your area, or if you've recently held one, please be sure to let us know the details, provide a short report and photos, etc., that we can include in the newsletter and the website.

It's also time to renew your IFMR dues for 2012-13, if you haven't already done so. You can do it quickly and easily using our new on-line credit card payment system. Just go to www.ifmr-na.org and choose the link for "Pay/Renew Dues by Credit Card" on the left side of the page. Once you've updated your info and paid your dues you'll receive an updated membership roster by email.

What's the news in your area???
If you have information regarding future rides, get-togethers, or other events in your area . . . or news and photos from an IFMR event you've recently participated in, send it to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to include it in the next newsletter and/or add it to the website.
If you'd like to play a key role in developing IFMR in your area and haven't yet seen anyone else designated as an IFMR "Ride Guide" to fill that role, let me know and I'll gladly talk with you about the challenges and opportunities involved. It's a great way to simultaneously expand your enjoyment of both motorcycling and Rotary.

As indicated in this newsletter, we're seeking
IFMR members who would like to help organize rides and promote
membership in their local area. I've already named several and
I'll be naming more in the next few months. I'd like to have a
network of IFMR 'ride guides' in every state and Rotary
district. If you love to ride and love to meet other riders, I
encourage you to become an IFMR 'ride guide'. Just let me know
of your interest and I'll fill you in on details and help you
get things started. You won't regret it!
