Welcome to the Markham Chapter of CARP!
We are here to serve our local community, all CARP members and interested parties by supporting the ABC motto of CARP, namely: Advocacy, Benefits and Community!
Our vision is to create a dynamic, useful, vibrant chapter that looks after the specific needs of our local community while leveraging the advantages that CARP overall brings. In unity we have strength. The more members we have, the bigger the voice and the bigger the clout, whether it is talking to politicians or arranging for travel insurance!
We also want to have fun in the process – getting to know our own community and the other communities that make up the fabric of our great nation. This is a journey that we would like you to make with us. Thus, we invite you to join CARP and volunteer your talents and some of your time serving the community and yourselves in the bargain.
The demands on time are minimal, perhaps amounting to 4 hours or so a month. Becoming a CARP member is not expensive, yearly memebership is less than a meal at a good restaurant. See what you get for your money – a classy magazine that promotes your well being in many interesting ways, exclusive membership and access to a wide range of services ranging from discounted travel, insurance, car rentals, community website and forum, to name but a few. But above all, it gives you a chance to network and meet with like-minded people in your local chapter. Please note: When you sign up, be sure to indicate that you are joining the Markham chapter as we get brownie points for each new member! There is a Chapter Code field at the top of the web form when you subscribe or renew – Markham is 28.
We are looking for CARP members who want to be involved at the Chapter board level in supporting this worthwhile venture. Remember we are in this together, one for all and all for one! So please email me if you are interested at [email protected]
Please keep checking this web page from time to time as we will be announcing local events where all are welcome.
We will email existing Markham members from time to time about happenings in Markham so do not put us in the spam bin please!
Here is looking forward to working with you, for you, for us!
