BMW CCA now has 4,589 members.
We continue to be the largest chapter

a BMW, but is missing out on the
rewards of belonging to the BMW
CCA? They probably don't even

realize what great benefits they are
missing, including parts discounts at
local BMW dealerships and select
independent service centers, the
Roundel, the club's award-winning
national, monthly publication, the
Membership Rewards Program
sponsored by BMW NA, and all our

local chapter activities. Please do them
a favor and share this with them - after
all, the more the merrier!
