SFWDA Embraces New Membership Concepts

July 23, 2014

 The Southern Four Wheel Drive Association Board of Directors recently approved sweeping changes to the membership structure as we re-position ourselves to be a relevant voice for all off-road enthusiast. As we prepare for Dixie Run 28, September 25-28, 2014, we are including the new Individual Membership as a NET $0 cost to all registrants. As proposed, the new Individual Membership will be $10 with offsetting discounts to Dixie Run and TrailFest. We have offset this $10 cost with an immediate discount to Dixie Run 28. Therefore there is no additional costs to an existing SFWDA member and we will continue to strive to build a broader membership through attendance at the event. Additionally all members can now share in these savings with our business partners. Note this link:

This means the club pays $250 and that takes care of the members too?

I asked and this was their response 

We are working on some further refinements and clarifications to the new membership concepts.  We have a BOD meeting on Sep 22 and hope to have some direction at that time.  We are investigating some new membership management tools and want to make sure we communicate clearly to all of you.  There has been some confusion so please be patient with us.  Hold tight and we should be able to answer your questions shortly.

Thanks and look forward to seeing you on the trails.

Got an email this morning from Southern

We had a SFWDA BOD meeting last evening to review some membership management tools

and conceptual issues with our proposed membership model.  It was agreed that we will move

forward with the low cost model with a flat club cost structure of $250.  The refinement to our

concept is that this flat cost structure will include all club members.  Note below:


All club/group members become association members during

enrollment process and membership includes all benefits of the SFWDA Supporting

Individual Member.
