Can I attend the NACC Board Meeting?
No, the only persons who can attend a NACC Board meeting are registered Directors or their nominated delegate.
Can I come to a National Rally?
Yes, if you are a member of a local caravan club that is affiliated with the relevant state or territory association of caravan clubs then you are more than welcome to attend. Bookings are required in advance and fees are to be paid. Registration forms for the 17th National Rally in Albany in 2019 can be found here
Does the NACC have any links to other RV organisations?
Yes, as part of RV Clubs Australia the NACC is represented at the national level on all matters affecting the RV travelling lifestyle. Efforts are being made to establish relationships with the industry bodies such as the CRVA.
Does the NACC only represent the interests of caravanners? What about campers and motor homers?
No, most clubs are willing to accept most types of recreational vehicles. Many motorhome and camper vehicle owners choose to join the CMCA while others are happy to remain part of a caravan club. NACC is part of RV Clubs Australia which acts nationally on behalf of all RV travellers. See here for structure.
How can I find information about caravan clubs operating in my local area?
The first place to start is by checking the state association web site which will typically list all affiliated caravan clubs in the state. From the state affiliated clubs listing, you can generally find the web site for a caravan club in your local area. Most clubs will have contact details on their web site which can be used to make further enquiries.
How do I apply for a Benefits card?
It is easy! Just ask your club secretary to enter your membership details in the club online database and choose your preferred method for delivery of your Benefits Card. You can have the Benefits Card sent to your mobile phone as an MMS or an SMS; you can have it emailed, or you can ask your club secretary to print off a card for you.
Once you have your Benefits Card you can then access the benefits currently on offer.
I'd like to get involved - how can I help NACC?
There are a number of ways to help NACC. If there are matters which require a national approach then they should be referred to the firstname.lastname@example.org Matters such as closure of camping facilities, caravan registration compliance weights to name just a few are matters which can be brought to the attention of NACC.
As the state associations of caravan clubs are the bodies who nominate Directors for the board of NACC, individual club members can nominate for any vacancies or board positions prior to an AGM.
Individuals can petition politicians and local councillors on matters which may affect the enjoyment of their RV lifestyle. Surprisingly, the old snail mail approach can often be quite effective in having matters discussed especially if a large number of club members decide to participate.
What are RV Friendly Towns?
To encourage towns to provide suitable services and facilities for the RV traveller, a scheme was set up by the CMCA to allow towns to register as RV Friendly Towns. To achieve this status, a specific set of criteria must be met and approved by the CMCA. Full details can be found here.
