Mentoring Program

Suggestions:

Suggested items to be used by the mentor when calling on our new members.  You may use these ideas or any other ideas you may deem necessary to benefit the new member.  The point of this program is to make becoming a member of the Wally Byam Caravan Club as easy as possible.  We must make membership fun, exciting, and interesting.

If you have any questions or ideas about this program, contact your Region Officers.


Some things we can do for new members are:

  1. Call the new member – make an appointment to visit their home to answer questions or help them hitch-up, load-up, or anything else to prepare them for travel.
  2. Explain the fun things we do at our caravans, rallies, and luncheons.
  3. Determine where to rendezvous with new members for a two trailer caravan to the next rally.
  4. Help new member with parking and hook ups.
  5. Personally escort new members around the rally site and introduce them to others.  Most of all make them welcome.
  6. Meet the new member, escort them to dinner, and explain the usual procedures.  Be sure to sit with the new member for a couple of meals so they will be more at ease.
  7. Standby with the new members and introduce them again to the entire membership.  Be sure to get their names right.
  8. Offer to drive new member on any tour or outing that may be planned at the rally.
  9. Make special effort to wish the new member farewell at the close of the rally.
  10. Most of all “Ask them to come back.”

These (10) points are only guidelines to help new members.  Some new members will need less direction and help than others, and some may need even more.   Each current WBCCI member will carry out these suggestions differently, depending on their personality.

 

BEFORE YOU BLOW YOUR BREAKER

Take a minute and see how many AMPS you could be using in your RV’s 30 or 50 AMP electrical system.  It’s surprising how fast the AMPS add up which causes your breaker or the RV park’s breaker to “TRIP”.  Knowing the AMPS of all the electrical appliances in your RV can help you manage electrical use and prevent the inconvenience of “MY ELECTRICITY WENT OUT”.  This is a list of typical electrical appliances used and the average amps they require.
