The best clubs out there are the ones that have people who are passionate about the club's focus and plan of action. With all clubs and especially a car club you want to share the joy of owning, in this case a Classic Chevy, and, the experiences that go with that ownership. I believe members in a car club wish to learn more about their hobby. A club should help them expand their knowledge, thus enjoyment.
aspects of communication the communicator's passion should not be held back. On the contrary the communicator should put the peddle to the metal to emphasized his or her passion for the hobby. People join clubs because they think it can add value to the experience of their hobby. The majority of club members stick around if the feel that the club and its leadership are positive and uplifting, that listen, answer questions, share knowledge and are open to others getting involved.
We limit our giving back to the community to one time a year. We found many members who are into giving back projects already are committed to causes that do that full time, therefore limiting their time for the our club activities if the same type. People who don't give back, well don't. What I'm saying if that activity is over done you will have low attendance. Low attendance, BAD!
