Following the launch of a new Membership Management solution in addition to useful Rewards and Discounts from a variety of off road related business's available to all active members.

John Galbreath Jr. of Harldline Crawlers recently commented with SFWDA about the challenges of membership in modern time and how important it is still to unite. "There are a lot of active people on the forums, but really not sure how many see a value in group membership. At age 57, I grew up in an era where you had clubs. Now with social media, that playing field has changed. Fraternities and many other organizations are affected the same way. Kids today, just do not see the need to group together and socialize the way mine and my parents generation did. That is one of the main reasons I like seeing SFWDA roll toward the newer platform."
