About Our Members

Members are spread across the eastern part of the United States and Canada. In addition to members from this geographical area of North America, we also have members from across the continent and the world. Though we have rallies like other RV clubs, one of the primary reasons for the existence of GMCES is the dissemination of technical and supportive information. To that end, each rally always includes several technical presentations as well as other activities that can be enjoyed by all attendees.

The Membership Fee

Dues are payable and due on January 1 of each year. Dues and initiation fee (if any) may be set each year as determined by the club. For 2013 dues for all members, new or returning, will be $20. There will be an initiation fee of $10 accessed in 2013 for new members. Also, according to the Standing Rules, membership fees paid after October 1 of any year will be valid through December 31 of the following year. For instance, if a new member joins the club and pays the dues on October 15, 2013 the club shall consider that member in good standing through the balance of 2014. Also note that GMCES requires that any member also retain membership in FMCA. As an affiliate Eastern States is recognized as being fully incorporated according to the bylaws and guidelines of FMCA.
