“Our new website not only provides informational resources to park operators to help them be more successful, but it gives them the ability to instantly update their campground listings on Camp-California.com, our travel planning website for consumers,” said CampCalNOW President Dyana Kelley.
CampCalNow.org highlights the association’s growing array of member benefits, which enables it to serve as a one-stop-shop for significant discounts on every major product or service park operators need to run their businesses successfully, said CampCalNOW officials.
CampCalNOW benefits include music licensing discounts through ASCAP and BMI, which are roughly 20% lower than established rates, as well as movie licensing discounts through MPLC and SWANK, the latter of which licenses Disney films. Alliance members receive $100 off movie licensing fees for both organizations, which amounts to about a 25% discount.
CampCalNow has also negotiated wholesale propane discount programs with Ferrell Gas, Global Gas and Suburban Propane.
“The prices for propane vary weekly, but we offer the best discounts available from the top propane providers,” Kelley said.
CampCalNow has also secured Home Depot “Key Tags” for wholesale pricing, which alliance members can use to obtain substantial discounts on everything from paint to building supplies.
“The amount of the discount varies depending on what you buy,” Kelley said, “but we’ve obtained nonprofit association pricing.”
Kelley added that the savings that result from these new discount programs easily offset the cost of CampCalNow membership.
CampCalNOW.org also provides information on the association’s marketing, government affairs, the association’s legal affairs hotline for members, as well as continuing education and networking opportunities.
The website also hosts an extensive document library of information resources involving everything from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines to regulations governing the use of work campers. The document library also includes downloadable legal forms ranging from storage and lease agreements to forms for removals and evictions. Sample letters to state legislators are also available.
Kelley said the new website has been organized to make it easy for current and prospective CampCalNOW members to quickly find what they are looking for.
“Any information that a member or nonmember is looking for is never more than three clicks away,” she said.
CampCalNow staff will be reaching out to all of the association’s members in the coming days to provide them with their new personalized logins. Members will also be able to choose their own passwords.
