The Porsche Club of America (PCA) was established in 1955 and has grown into the largest single marque car club in the world! Porsche Club members are a fantastic group of people. They are friendly, knowledgeable, love to drive and are enthusiastic about all things Porsche. The informal motto is: you come for the cars, stay for the people! There are a number of national events held in various locations around the US and Canada.
The Pacific NW Region (PNWR) was started in 1959 and currently has almost 2000 primary members. With associate and family members, our count is well over 3000 people.
Our amazing regional group of volunteers will organize about 100 events in typical year. In order to join the Pacific NW Region, you must first be a member of PCA.
To join PCA, you must be a Porsche owner. PCA membership dues are $46 per year (subject to change). If you are in the process of purchasing or searching for a Porsche to buy, you can check out the PCA Test Drive program. It’s a six month provisional membership available at the PCA website.
If you are ready to join PCA, these are the steps:
- Have the VIN for your car handy
- Go to www.pca.org
- Click on the "Join PCA" button
- Current national dues are just $46 per year*
Shortly after you join PCA, the membership chair for the Pacific NW Region will be notified that we have a new member! We will enter your information into our club management system. You will then receive a Welcome email with a bit of information about the club along with a temporary user name and password for the regional club. This is a separate system from PCA's national system.
First time you log in, you will be asked to:
- Change your password
- Create a new user name (email address works well)
- Pay your annual regional membership dues ($20 per year)
Upon paying regional dues, you will receive a confirmation notice. Your regional dues includes a print version of the Spiel mailed to your home address, allows you to vote for regional board of directors, hold a chair or board position as well as having your account setup so you can sign up online for club events.
You can also setup your profile, add information about your car(s), select areas of interests, join a forum, find out about the various club activities, receive email blasts about upcoming events & announcements. We also invite you to join our Facebook group and follow us on our Facebook page.
Our monthly board meetings are open to all members. We have a new member's day in the spring, and social events are an especially good way to get to know other club members. All events are open to all members, but check out the details for events as some have specific requirements such as helmets for track events.
The publications that members receive monthly, the PCA's "Panorama" and PNWR's newsletter "Spiel", are easily worth more than the annual cost of membership.
We hope you will join today!
If you should have any questions, please don't hesitate to email Membership@pnwr.org.
*Subject to change, check PCA for current cost.
