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 March 2020
March is here and spring is surely just around the corner. I am so looking forward to the new season and all that goes with it – even mowing the lawn!
The NCCC Tire raffle will continue this year and the details are attached below or check out the link on the NCCC web site (https://www.corvettesnccc.org/Charity/FreeTiresForm.pdf). What a great chance to win some tires and help with a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In 2019, the tire raffles along with gifts and donations from NCCC clubs, we were able to give almost $25,000 to St. Judes. Thanks to all of you that made this possible and a special thanks to Michele Cantelmo and her Charity Committee for all their hard work.
While looking in at all the various meetings taking place at last week’s quarterly NCCC Governors meeting, I was reminded of all the many volunteers it takes to run this organization. From Club Governors to Regional officers to National officers and every single one a volunteer. A staggering number of hours are devoted to making this the great organization that it is. Please join me in saying thank you to everyone involved – what a great group of people you are!
There is still time to get your club or region logo included in the new video being produced for display at the National Corvette Museum. There was a typo in the address posted last month. The correct address to send your logo is:
The 2020 NCCC Convention in Indianapolis will be here before you know it and registration is now open. Check the web site (https://www.corvettesnccc.org/2020Convention/Convention2020.php) for a full list of parties, tours, competitive events, and more. I’m pretty sure a week is not going to be enough time to do it all! I’ll be there and hope to see you there too.
NCCC will be officially represented at four major events this year: Michelin NCM Bash @ National Corvette Museum in April, Bloomington Gold Corvette show in June, Corvettes at Carlisle in August, and Mid America’s FunFest in September. If you happen to be at any of these events, stop in and say Hi, enjoy a cool drink, and maybe talk all things Corvette.
My calendar is once again jam packed with NCCC competitive events, shows, National Corvette Museum events, and more. I enjoy every event and every Corvette that I see. But mostly I enjoy getting together with the all of you.
That’s all for now – see you out there.
Save the Wave!
