The National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. (NCCC) was founded in the United States as an all volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners/enthusiasts! In 2009 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary and look forward to many more years of fellowship. The purpose of NCCC was (and still is) to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use and ownership of the Corvette ~ America's Sports Car!
In the early days, the number of Clubs was rather small with all of the them being located East of the Mississippi. Today, there are about 250 Clubs in 16 Regions both East and West of the Mississippi! The membership in NCCC is comprised of more than 19,000 Members and is the largest non-profit, all volunteer Corvette organization in the United States! Come join us!!
NCCC President's Message November 2019
I woke up to snow this week. Snow!! I guess it’s that time of year. My Corvette is in the garage for the winter and I have a “to do list” before it comes out in the spring. My calendar is not quite as full, so maybe I can actually get some things done this winter.
The November NCCC Governors meeting is just a week away. In addition to the usual business at hand, we are honored to have Dr. Sean Preston joining us. Sean is the new president and CEO of the National Corvette Museum. I’m sure Sean will bring us up to date on all that’s happening in the world of the museum. NCCC continues to support the museum, but our biggest support comes from you, the members of NCCC. If you are not already a member of the museum, please consider joining. There are multiple ways you can show your support and this is such a worthwhile cause. The museum not only tells the story of the Corvette, but preserves its history for generations to come.
In the past year, I’ve used this monthly email blast to keep everyone informed of what’s going on with NCCC and highlight some of the major events where NCCC is officially represented, such as the Bloomington Gold show, the NCM 25th anniversary celebration, and Corvettes at Carlisle. I know that there are many other large Corvette events that I have not mentioned. If your NCCC club is involved in a major event (200 or more Corvettes), feel free to send me an email (email@example.com). If space permits, I’ll be happy to give a shout out.
I also want to give a shout out to the Kettle Moraine Corvette Club in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. They celebrated 50 years this year with a banquet and party. Congratulations Kettle Moraine on 50 years. If your club is celebrating a major anniversary (25 or 50 years only please), send me a note and I’ll be happy to mention it here.
One of the major events that I look forward to each year is the annual NCCC convention. Next year will be the 61st annual convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. The folks from Indiana have already been working hard for the last several months planning and preparing for a good time. Start planning now – the dates are July 5th through the 10th and the web site link is: I’ll see you there.
Our charity people, under the leadership of Michele Cantelmo, have tires to raffle with all of the proceeds going to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The first set was raffled at the September NCCC Governors meeting and the next set will be given away next week at the November Governors meeting. Won’t you please help – the web site link is: https://www.corvettesnccc.org/Charity/FreeTiresForm.pdf.
That’s all for now – see you out there.
Save the Wave!
