President's Message




President’s Message October 2019

October! Where has this year gone? It seems like just yesterday we were wishing for spring. At least fall brings beautiful colors and crisp, cool weather.

September was another busy month starting with the NCCC Governors meeting in St Louis on Sept 6th and 7th. We were presented with a list of proposed by-law changes, a proposal from the East Ohio Region for a 2021 Convention, and campaign speeches from each of the candidates for the positions of NCCC Vice President-Competition, Secretary, Business Manager, and Sergeant at Arms. Your Governor will be voting on all of this electronically over the next few weeks. If you’d like more information, please contact your club Governor. Also presented was a proposal to accept a new rulebook for the years 2020 and 2021. The red-line version of the proposal should be available on the web site shortly. This will be voted on by the Governors represented at the November NCCC meeting. Your feedback is an important tool to help your Governor make informed decisions.

The next major event in September was the Mid America Corvette Funfest in Effingham, IL on Sept 19th thru 22nd. This is a huge event with thousands of Corvettes and Corvette enthusiasts. A street party, a wine tasting charity event, and a concert were just some of the events to keep everyone entertained. NCCC hosted a hospitality tent where we were able to spend some time with current NCCC members and promote NCCC to prospective members. A huge thanks to all who made this possible. Also, thanks to NCCC member and Mid America Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager and crew for hosting another great event. Put this event on your calendar for next year.

John Cantelmo, NCCC Director of Public Relations is updating a video that we have on display in the National Corvette Museum. He is looking for photos and especially for video of NCCC members having fun. It could be a competitive event, a club social event, or any activity that could be used to promote NCCC. Please talk to John with any material you may have.

At least for me, things should start to slow down a little in October. A couple of weekend autocrosses, a rally (maybe), and hopefully participate in some local club events. It’s been a pretty busy year, but I can’t think of a better group of people to spend my time with!

That’s all for now – see you out there. 

Save the Wave,
