The restaurant was to open ½ hour early for our group. Extra help was brought in and extra food was ordered. Our club, people at the car show, decided at the last minute to cancel that meal.
Some club members were willing to go but were told it was canceled. That being said, she and several others are very disappointed in the actions of our club. We have never backed out of a reservation at the last minute and that local restaurant will never accommodate our club again. The restaurant also gave a $50 gift certificate for our raffle.”

The National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc.

The Program depends entirely on voluntary participation by NCCC Clubs and their Club Members. Through the years NCCC, as an all volunteer organization, has donated over $1.5 million to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Spina Bifida Association of America and the National Kidney Foundation. In 1996, NCCC began working with the National Kidney Foundation in support of their Transplant Games and the Organ Donor Awareness Program. In 2016, NCCC began its support of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In 1990 the Program initiated the disaster program designed to assist members during times of financial crisis and/or disasters. This year a donation was made for $1,000.

In 1990, the Program established a Scholarship Program for Members, their children and grandchildren to assist with educational opportunities at the college level. This year there were 24 applicants.  They applied for a $1,500 scholarship.  Sixteen of those scholarships were complete.  Of those sixteen applicants, nine scholarships were awarded.

Motion carried and approved.

Diana told the club our yearly budget will be finalized at our next board meeting and ready for approval in March. Everyone will receive an email with the budget proposal to review before the March meeting.

Diana told the club a By Laws committee: Tracy Adamson, Mourina Sweet, Buddy Turner and Sandy Arnold were reviewing our current By Laws and will submit suggestions for possible changes.

Buddy Turner spoke and said he objects to elections by email voting. He is in favor of in person voting at meetings so topics can be discussed in person. There was concern from members about changing the By Laws to allow for electronic voting and who would monitor the votes. Rich explained the email that went to members was to see if members would like to allow email voting to give everyone a chance to vote. If someone had surgery or was away for the winter, they would miss a meeting and possibly a vote. It was suggested that Board members give advance notice on voting issues so members who wanted to vote would be at the meeting.

Diana suggested we table the conversation as we were running short on time.

In the spirit of our Valentine’s Day meeting, Diana had a box of chocolates to give away (donated by Jody Lawrence) Diana asked Jody to come up and play a game to win the chocolates. Jody flipped a coin having everyone call heads or tails. If you were wrong you had to sit down. Last person standing was Mo Sweet who went home with chocolates.

There was $65.00 in 50/50 money collected. The winner was Harry Sweet who went home with $33.00. Lucky night for the Sweets!

Diana asked for a motion to adjourn the meeting at 6:50 pm. The motion was made by Buddy Turner and seconded by Jody Lawrence.

Submitted respectfully,

Governor’s Report
Governor’s Meeting, November 12-13, 2021
Sandy Arnold writing as “I”

The MWR Competition season final standing reports are on the NCCC website and on the MWR website. MICC club members ranked 16 – 35 for worker points!

I was able to change the date for our 2022 MICC Autocross from August 28-29, 2021 to October 1-2, 2022. There are no other events scheduled that weekend. Our autocross will be held the 40th week of sanctioned events. There are 48 racing weekends. We should have a great turnout and hopefully, cooler weather!

The 2022 Competition Rule Book changes were not accepted, the rule changes did not pass. This means we will use 7 sanctions each day for our autocross. If changes were made we would have been able to use only 5 sanctions each day. I contacted Mike Link, Glass Favorites, MW-077, in Galesburg, IL. to borrow 4 sanctions for our event. They will give us four sanctions at $50 for each.

Both national and regional election results were announced. I will continue as RMD for the Midwest Region.

The regional banquet will be held March 12, 2021, in Burr Ridge, IL. Cost per person is $40.10. There will be a three hour open bar, along with several entrées, dessert and drinks. Rooms are available and should be reserved in advance for $119 (includes breakfast) or $109 without breakfast.

There will be a block of rooms reserved for the Midwest Region Awards Banquet, at the Crowne Plaza; information to follow.

In an effort to give credit to our club, please list contributions made by the club on a Club Charity Donation Reporting Form. This form is located in INFORMATION on both the NCCC and Midwest Region website. All contributions are not just in the form of money. The NCCC and the MWR would also like to know when clubs perform charitable activities which include events where members volunteer their time. Please include the year that the event takes place. This will be an ongoing record of activities that can be submitted as they happen. Our club has participated in several noteworthy community services! Recognition will appear in Blue Bars.  [this information has been forward to our MICC board for action when needed]

The 2022 NCCC Convention is well underway! If you think you’d attend, go to the website and look at all the things planned. It sounds exciting. I am planning to attend the convention! Anyone interested in going, please let me know!

May Governor’s Report 2020
May 2. 2020

There wasn’t a Governor’s Meeting May 1-2, 2020, in St. Louis, MO., due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. Instead we held a conference call on May 2nd with our region following the agenda used for our meeting.

At this time they are still planning to have the convention in July, in Indianapolis. If that changes, they will let everyone know.

Most events, rallies’, autocross, car shows, have been canceled through June. Please check the MWR website for daily updates. The Memorial Day Regional Fundraiser May 23-25 is canceled.

The region is asking all clubs to submit regional recognition. Our club does lots of community service! Let’s get something to Larry Pagliaro for some club recognition….bell ringers, shoe fund, car show, etc. Rich has forms in the FAQ folder! The information will be published in the Blue Bars magazine.

It was discussed at the meeting that membership renewals would be mailed to the RMD no later than November 7th. This not only helps me process renewals but helps with yearend bookkeeping. Please have your renewals to Tracy so they can be submitted by October meeting.

The NCCC has 17,467 members with 238 clubs in 16 regions. This number is up 429 members since our February meeting.

Our region continues to be the largest region in the National Council of Corvette Clubs with 2,443 members. Corvette Club of Illinois is the largest club in the Midwest Region with 195 members. There are 35 MAL’s and 26 Lifetime members in the MWR.

The St. Jude Corvette Drive to Memphis has been canceled. The new date for the Drive will be August 20-21, 2020. For questions, please email Dan Gove at stjudedrive@gmail.com.

As we see the daffodils pop out, spring has to be close! Hopefully, we will be able to get those cars out soon and enjoy a ride!

Please be safe!

Sandy Arnold, Governor
