September 2017 Governor’s Report

Governor’s Meeting
September 8-9, 2017

In 1977 Roger Clancy formulated a plan for the NCCC to be involved with charity work within our communities by sponsoring a Corvette giveaway. The Roger Clancy Humanitarian Award is given annually to a NCCC member who has gone the extra mile.  Two of the three nominees for 2017 are our club members!  Gary Uftring and Connie Durham were both nominated.  Deb Lindsey, Director of Sponsorship, Cowtown Vettes, Southwest Region, received the award.  Congratulations to both Gary and Connie for being nominated!

St. Jude Car Raffle.  The NCCC is selling tickets for $50.00 each for the annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Car Raffle.  The winner will receive a Certificate valued at $55,000 toward a new Corvette OR a cash value of $40,000.  I will have tickets for sale at the next two [September and October] meetings.

Please make sure Tracy Adamson, Membership Director, receives changes in information including email address, physical address, phone numbers, etc.

This will be the first time in NCCC history that the membership cards will be electronic.  Only new members will receive a plastic card.  If you do not have email, let me now and I will print your membership card.

New members only can request a free license plate frame with your membership.  You do have to ask for the frame.

An insurance waiver is highly recommended for events including car shows and drive out/meet & Eats.  When requesting a insurance certificate for an event, allow two weeks for processing.

Currently, the NCCC has 19,028 members.  The Midwest Region has 2,426 members and 28 clubs.  Central Illinois Corvette Club, located in Champaign, Illinois is the largest club with amembership of 209.

The 2018 Convention will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 15-20, 2018. The 60th NCCC Convention will be held in Denver, Colorado July 7-12, 2019. Details to follow.  Save the dates!

January 1 -10, 2018 the NCCC website will be shut down and moved to a new server, GoDaddy.  The Members Only password will change once the website is moved.  I will have the new password once it is changed.
