The 2018 results are in and NCCC has once again had a great renewal of members for this year.  The membership has a trend that has been steady for the past few years.  We lose a few members with the initial renewals but then we grow even larger through the remainder of the year.  In 2017, we ended the year with over 19,000 members.  While there are other Corvette organizations and groups across the country, the National Council of Corvette Clubs is the largest group of Corvette clubs in the country.  Members who join NCCC have the opportunity to join as a member-at- large and while there is strength in sheer numbers, we find one of our greatest strengths is within our local clubs across the country.      Clubs come in all different sizes, types of members, have different activities and interests.  Our insurance program is a drawing card for clubs who want to join NCCC as we provide 3rd party liability insurance for events sponsored by the club and its’ NCCC members whether it is social or competitive.  We host an annual convention that is basically a gathering of members who enjoy getting together for this event.  Some come for the competition, the tours, and the location but when you get to the real reason most members are there, it is to meet up with friends they have made from previous conventions.  We support a charity as a national organization and currently are working with St.Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  We offer a program for Future Corvette Owners, FCOA that encourages members to get their children, grandchildren involved to keep the dream of owning a Corvette alive.  We are closely involved with the National Corvette Museum as our organization has a permanent seat on the Executive Board and we have provided financial support for various projects at the museum. Corvette owners join to share their love of their car with others, to hear their stories, to learn from their experiences, and just to share in the experience of owning a Corvette.       Where can you find us?  Check out the map on our web site, www.corvettesnccc.org, and look for a club in your area.  You will have multiple choices in some areas.  Attend a few meetings and activities and you will be hooked to our family and friends in NCCC.  Get involved and you won’t be disappointed.       See you next month!  Save the wave!
