Each year, BMW CCA members are eligible to participate in our annual membership-drive. Besides maintaining the health of the Club, members can earn BMW CCA Bucks—and be entered to win great prizes!
Every single participant in the 2014 BMW CCA Membership Drive will have an opportunity to win a One-day M School of their own, plus two nights lodging for one, not including air transportation. There will be a drawing for members who successfully make referrals, and a separate drawing for those who are referred.

Each time a Club member successfully makes a referral during 2014, that member will be entered into a drawing for an M school, as well as other prizes. For example, if John Smith refers ten new members in 2014, his name will be entered ten times for an M school.
Since turnabout is fair play—and every great marketing effort comes with a hook!—we are also entering each person you refer into a separate drawing for a One-Day M School. For example, John Smith refers Jane Doe, who then joins the BMW CCA. Jane, along with each other member referred in 2014, will be entered to win an M school of her own!
No one knows better than you how vital our discounts and technical help are to affordably keeping your Bimmer on the road. And who has more fun doing it than we do?
Why not let a friend—or even a stranger—in on the benefits? Refer someone today—or at any time during 2014—and not only will you help the Club grow, but you can earn yourself BMW CCA Bucks for Club merchandise, memberships, and events—and you’ll be eligible to win a One-Day M School. We all know that it’s the cars that bring us together, but it’s the people that keep us here year after year.
The membership drive for 2014 runs though December 31, 2014.
BMW CCA Membership Contest rules
These are the official rules and as such supersede any description listed elsewhere and any verbal communications.
The BMW CCA membership drive is open to current BMW CCA Members.
New Membership Definition
A new membership is defined as a membership for an individual who has not previously belonged to BMW CCA, or an individual who was previously a BMW CCA member but whose membership lapsed at least six months prior to the date of the new membership. A new membership with a corresponding associate membership counts as one new membership.
Rewards for current BMW CCA members who refer new members
For each new member that joins, referring members will receive $5.00 in "BMW CCA Bucks" that can be used for the purchase of anything sold by BMW CCA or applied to CCA memberships. There is no limit to the amount of "BMW CCA Bucks" a member may receive based on new member referrals. "BMW CCA Bucks" will expire on 12/31/2015 and have no cash surrender value.
New members can join:
Deadline, Procedures and Restrictions
In order to be counted, the National Office must receive all new member applications no later than December 31, 2014.
If referred by a current BMW CCA member, a new member application must contain the name and BMW CCA member number of the referring member in order for the referring member to receive credit. Credit may not be applied retroactively. If a new member cancels their membership within 30 days of joining, the referring individual will lose credit for that membership.
If a new member is referred by a current associate member, the associate member will receive the "BMW CCA Bucks," and be entered into the M-School drawing.
"BMW CCA Bucks" and other prizes will be awarded at the end of the program only to those who are members in good standing at that time.
1st Prize: One-day M School at the BMW Performance Center, plus two nights lodging for one, not including transportation. Referring members will receive one chance to win an M School per new member referred. New Members referred by a current member during this period will also be entered to win an M School.
2nd Prize: 2015 Oktoberfest Social Package Registration
3rd Prize: $200 American Express Gift Card
To be eligible, current BMW CCA members must be paid members in good standing through December 31, 2014 (that is, they may not be members by virtue of being "comped" by BMW CCA or a BMW CCA chapter).
BMW CCA members who are members of the National Board of Directors, paid employees of BMW CCA, Roundel senior staff, and members of their immediate families or households are eligible for referral reward incentives, but are not eligible for the grand prizes.
Please note that memberships purchased by dealers for their customers are not eligible. This exclusion is in effect even if a current BMW CCA member is listed on the application as a referrer. However, employees of BMW dealerships are eligible to win prizes and earn BMW CCA Bucks by referring members who purchase their own membership.
Referral credit will not be given to applications received without the referring member's BMW CCA member number. BMW CCA members will be able to track their referrals by accessing their personal information through the BMW CCA web site. "BMW CCA Bucks" awarded under this program will be mailed to members within 45 days of the end of the Membership Drive.
