Q. Do I need a Certificate of Insurance for all our events?
A. No, only for those events in which the venue owner requires you to provide one.
Q. Are we insured for just car show type events?
A. Pretty much any club activity other than races, etc., is covered by our limited liability policy. When in doubt, contact us.
Q. OK, we pay $225.00 for our registration fee and receive back 6 VVWCA club memberships and are certified as a Chapter Club of the VVWCA. How are the memberships to be used or can we give them out to current members of the VVWCA and extend their membership?
A. The club memberships are not intended for current members. You cannot extend a current membership with them. They should be given out to new members only. Certificates may be redeemed for electronic access to our online E-Edition. You can use them as door prizes, club attendance awards or you could sell them to help generate non-dues income, etc.
Q. Do I understand this correctly, our club will be paid for submitting stories to be published in the Vintage Voice?
Yes. You can earn up to $100.00 in Cash Back rewards over the course of the year. Organize an event, write a story, submit it and if we publish it … you'll receive a check at the end of the year. Good as cash.
Q. So what does it really cost for our club to become a designated chapter of the VVWCA?
A. Actually, nothing. You have the opportunity to recoup your registration fees by submitting stories for us to publish about your event. The cost of purchasing 6 memberships is valued at an average of $146.00. PLUS! Our umbrella liability policy is a benefit to your club without any additional cost. Many clubs deem it as being priceless.
Q. We're a Volkswagen club but are not associated with the VVWCA. Could we buy insurance from you anyway?
A. No. The VVWCA does not sell insurance nor are we authorized to represent our insurance company. Chapter clubs earn the right to be covered under our limited liability umbrella policy. This is a benefit of being associated with the VVWCA.
Q. What does "club in good standing" mean and how does a club achieve this standard.
A. Just follow the guidelines as defined on this page. It's really not that hard. If you're concerned at all, contact us.
Q. Why do we have to fill out a request for club certification every year. Can't you just use last year's paperwork?
A. No. It just doesn't work that way. Clubs come and go as do members and officers. We just don't have the people power to keep track of everyone's members. If VVWCA club benefits are important to your club, the responsibility to fill out the paperwork and verify your own members is yours.
Q. Are we required to send to you a complete copy of our membership list. Doesn't this violate privacy issues? What do you do with this list?
A. No you are not required to do so. But, doing so helps us market club activities to your membership and …. it does not violate any privacy issues. If you're going to be associated with the VVWCA, we would like to know who your members are. The list you provide us is not shared with any other non-for-profit or for-profit organization. On occasion, we may use to list to market VVWCA club activates to and help you build your membership. We respect the privacy of those names within the list and treat them with the utmost in confidentiality.
