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 January 2020
Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2019 is now history and we embark on another new year. Time seems to fly by at a faster pace every year. If only my skills on the autocross course would get faster every year!
As I reminisce about 2019, I think of the many autocross weekends, a few rally and car show weekends, major Corvette gatherings such as Bloomington Gold and Mid America Fun Fest, NCCC Governors meetings, NCCC Convention, and the National Corvette Museum’s Bash and 25th anniversary celebrations.
It was a very busy year, 2020 looks to be just as busy, and I look forward to doing it all again. I enjoy the cars and the activities, but mostly I enjoy spending time with Corvette people. You are my extended family and I am truly grateful.
As we look forward to 2020 and start to organize our calendars, don’t forget to put this year’s NCCC Convention in Indianapolis, IN on your schedule. The dates are July 5th through July 10th and more information can be found at: https://www.corvettesnccc.org/2020Convention/Convention2020.php. Registration will open February 1st.
You still have one more chance to help support the NCCC charity program benefitting St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. A set of tires will be raffled off at the February NCCC Governors meeting. Details are available at: https://www.corvettesnccc.org/Charity/FreeTiresForm.pdf and the deadline for this drawing is Feb 10th. Please help support this worthy cause.
Have you ordered your “next generation” C8 Corvette yet? I have not, but I have at least 4 friends that have. There certainly seems to be plenty of excitement and the car seems to be generating a lot of interest from both the traditional Corvette enthusiasts as well as a new demographic of young people. The car was engineered with a possible right hand drive configuration, so we know GM is looking at the export market also. I can’t wait to see one at an autocross course.
I recently attended the Board of Directors meeting of the National Corvette Museum. There are many upgrades and expansions in various stages of planning. I think you can almost feel the excitement in the air as the Museum moves forward. Are you a member and do you support the Museum? Check out their website at: https://www.corvettemuseum.org to find out all about what’s new and how you can be a supporter.
That’s all for now – see you out there.
Save the Wave!
