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 October 2021
October already – where is the year going? At least in the Midwest part of the country, this is one of the most beautiful times of year. The colors are changing and the temperatures are moderate. Seems like the perfect time to enjoy your Corvette.
I spent my Labor Day weekend at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY for the 27th anniversary celebration. The big news of the weekend was the announcement of the museum’s new president and CEO, Sharon Brawner. Sharon comes to the museum with experience in tourism, museum, and non-profit leadership and the museum is looking forward to having her on board.
NCCC just held its regularly scheduled business meeting in St Louis, Missouri. The weekend consists of two full days of committee meetings and the Governors meeting. We had a pretty full agenda with a presentation of proposed By-Law changes and a proposed two year competition rulebook. This meeting also marks the deadline for officer nominations for next year’s open positions. We are lucky to have a qualified candidate for each of the four NCCC officer positions up for election. They are: Vice President of Competition, Bill Docherty; Secretary, Ellen Schwartz; Business Manager, Allen Morris; and Sergeant-at-Arms, Butch DeWitt. For further information on any of the above, please contact your club Governor.
NCCC sponsor, Hagerty Insurance is hosting a webinar this Tuesday, October 5th. Look for details below. Take time to attend (it’s free) – I think you’ll enjoy.
My calendar is starting to fill for next year and one of the highlights will be the 63rd annual NCCC convention – June 12th through 17th, 2022 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Here’s the link for the latest information: 2022 Convention information. Start your planning now!
It is so good to see club activities returning to some kind of normal. Both social and competitive events seem to be filling club calendars and attendance seems to be returning to pre-Covid levels.
As the year races by, enjoy your Corvette, your Corvette Club, and your Corvette family.
That’s all for now. Stay safe and…
Save the Wave!
