Some do, some don't
Each chapter has it's own personality. Attend a meeting and decide for yourself.

Join, put the PCA sticker in your windsheild, read the monthly magazine in your bathroom and keep your eyes open for a PCA track day or car show for something to do.

Many dealerships (mine included) offer a 10% discount on parts and service to PCA members. That more than pays for the annual membership. My PCA group is heavily involved in autocross and track events, as well as breakfasts, dinners, driving tours, concours, and more.

Member since '93. Been active in DE, racing, autocross, primarily. It is a good venue for those things, imo.

Most PCA regions allow you to participate in driving events in a Porsche even if you aren't a member but PCA membership is required if you want to run a different make of car. I'm not much into the social aspects but the monthly club magazine is great and getting even better now under direction of Pete Stout. And, as has been mentioned, there are the 10% discounts on parts and service from most dealers which can quickly pay for the annual $46 membership fee. I've been a member for 30 years....you should join.

Been a member since 84. The 10% discount on parts has more than paid for all of my membership costs. My region, OVR, has a pretty well attended and fun monthly meeting. I try to attend as often as possible.

I joined a year ago and have done a DE, go on as many of the weekend drives as we can, and the wife and I go to the socials, which are the most enjoyable part of membership for us. The national magazine has nice articles, and so does our local section newsletter. Well worth the membership dues IMO...T

At $46/year, the least expensive part of the Porsche experience

If you enjoy being social and in contact with other Porsche Owners enough to read and post on Rennlist,
joining PCA becomes a no-brainer. With Club discounts available from most dealers, it becomes financially counter-productive NOT to join.
