Join A Chapter
Did you realize when you joined FMCA that you not only became a member of the premier RV association in North America but also one of the largest networks of RVers in the world? That's right, the FMCA family includes thousands of RV enthusiasts who, like you, not only have a zest for travel but also hobbies and interests off the highway. What better way to meet folks who share your “likes” than to become involved in one or more of FMCA's chapters?
FMCA has nearly 400 chapters across the United States and Canada. Some cover a specific or general geographic region. Others revolve around a particular RV brand or model. Fanatic about a particular sport? Play a musical instrument? Enjoy finding new places to eat? There are chapters that welcome those who have common interests like these, plus many more.
FMCA chapters have get-togethers at chapter rallies, area rallies and conventions to share stories, talk about issues that involve the RV community, assemble for social activities, and have a great time. Learn more about individual chapters on the Chapter Spotlight page, which includes stories about more than 100 of the association's chapters, giving you an inside look at some of the fun things these chapters do. To find a chapter (or three or four) that might interest you, visit the Chapter Search engine.
For many, chapter membership
is considered the best part of FMCA.
Benefits of FMCA Chapter Membership
Become a chapter member
and you can:

In addition to FMCA's area rallies and conventions, chapters hold smaller-scale rallies and activities throughout the year. These gatherings are frequently held on weekends, and they are often organized locally, so long trips aren't necessary.
Each FMCA chapter develops its own personality and ways to have fun. Often, chapters hold gatherings in conjunction with a notable event or attraction that chapter members can enjoy, in addition to the traditional rally activities like potlucks or campfires.
Chapters welcome anyone - FMCA member or not - to attend most rallies and participate in the fun. Some rallies, however, have limited space and require reservations, so call ahead to make sure there's room to join them.
You can find information about scheduled chapter rallies (dates and locations) on the Association Calendar. Chapter rallies are also listed on the Association Calendar pages in each issue of Family RVing magazine.FIND A CHAPTER ACTIVITY
