How To Build An Exciting And Active Firebird Club Of Canada Chapter . Please Print this off and keep it handy for referral ......
Step 1 - Form You Provincial Level Executive with Men and Women who have the same Goal as you do. To do whatever is needed to build a Car Club that will someday be know throughout your Province and Canada. Your Vice President and 1st Officer have Duties.
Each Provincial Chapter will operate independently from the National , accept , the National Executive , here in Ontario and specifically Murray McMillan , will provide all your Firebird Club Of Canada Member Shirts and background check all potential New Members Canada - wide , as I do now.
Vice Presidents - Job - Your Responsibilities are to assist the President in every way possible to build and organize your Provincial Chapter. This means visiting local Businesses wearing your Club Shirt and asking for Sponsorship for 4 Prizes that will be awarded to your Members only at your 3 Official car Shows each summer. You will need 4 Provincial Club Sponsors for this to award 4 Prizes by Free Ticket Draw to your members at the shows. Also as V.P. , you must know everything about your Chapter so that you are able to step in and take over on a moments notice should the President vacate his position for any reason and is unable to fulfill his duties.
1st Officer - Your Job is exactly the same as your V.P.' s and you should be ready to step in a replace your V.P if ever needed. Also, it is your responsibility to make sure all members are parked in the right areas at Car Shows and non members are not parked in your Club area. You are your Club's Security.
Working closely together , the President , Vice President and 1st Officer are responsible to get Sponsors for your 10' X 10' Red Canopy that you will set up at your 4 Shows as well as your Red 5' Folding Table ..See pictures. These are available at Canadian Tire or Home Depot. About $200.00 For Both - These must be RED.....Your Membership Needs this Canopy for several important reasons. 1. As a Gathering point at the shows. 2. On the table you will display your Sponsors information who are supplying the awards for your members, this is the trade off to get the sponsors. When drawing the Free Tickets for the awards you will also Name the Sponsor supplying the Award. This is another reason for the Sponsor to be involved with your club.
Finally Chapter Presidents: Please notify The Board Of Directors of any Provincial Votes being called so I am aware of what your Chapter is doing and to make sure you are abiding by our National Declaration !
1. Acquire your Canopy and Table
2 . Choose your 2 Local - Official Car Show Events & Organize a Local Bandit Run
3. Acquire your 3 Official Club Sponsors with the help of your V.P. and 1st Officer !
