Almost 75 years after the first BMW car was built, BMW AG is on an unprecedented expansion course. The BMW Club community is also gearing up for the challenges of the future. The new international BMW Club structure has been divided into three regional sections since 01/01/2004: Europe, America and Asia-Pacific-Africa. Within these sections, the individual BMW Clubs are grouped together in national and regional umbrella organizations. An international section has also been created for the BMW classic and type clubs, which is intended to preserve the historic value of the brand. The club structure is now based more closely on the global BMW sales structure and the intention is to deliver more efficient cooperation and support for both sides. The new structure is also supposed to make it easier for individual clubs that are not members of the umbrella organizations to join up.
The BMW Clubs International Council (previously International Council of BMW Clubs) has been given a new structure from 01/01/2004 to reflect the current organizational framework. The new Council has 20 delegates. Europe is represented by the BMW Club Europa e.V. and will nominate up to four delegates on the basis of membership numbers. America, including Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific-Africa Section will each nominate a maximum of five delegates. BMW AG will also be represented by four delegates. The International BMW Classic and Type Clubs Section will be represented by two delegates.
The relationship with BMW AG is managed via BMW Classic.
