Governor’s Report for September 2016

The Governor’s Meeting was held in St. Louis, Missouri on September 9-11, 2016. 

I attended the Charity Meeting on Friday night and found the tickets for the St. Jude Raffle are not selling as well as expected. Tickets will be sold until November 11, 2016, when the raffle will end and the winning ticket will be drawn. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, the cost is $50 per ticket. The winner of the drawing will choose between a $40,000 (minus taxes) cash prize or a certificate for $54,000 toward a new corvette. Please help us to support St. Jude!

Last Memorial Day the Midwest Region used track time at the NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green. The region is determining if there is enough interest to return there.

The 2017 convention will be held in Bowling Green, Kentucky, August 21-25, 2017. More information will follow. The convention for 2018 will be held July 15-20, 2018, in New Orleans and Denver, Co. in 2019, with details to follow. 

Renewals will begin soon and everyone will receive a membership card. Beginning next year you will not receive a card. The cost of processing and renewals is $40,000 a year and it has been decided that the cards issued will be used for multiple years. New members will receive a packet along with their membership card. Lost or stolen card will be replaced.

We have been asked for each club member to make sure your addresses and emails are on your renewal information. 

Mid Illinois Corvette Club competed in the National Website Contest. There were 18 clubs competing.
