Happy summer to all Corvette owners. The NCCC CORNER has been around since 2015 as part of the ALLABOUTVETTES.COM on line publication.  For those who did not read the initial article or want a refresher, this is an update on NCCC.  WHAT IS NCCC? This is the acronym for National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. which is a 18,000 plus member organization with approximately 245 clubs throughout the United States.  We began our existence in 1959 with a few Corvette enthusiasts who made the de- cision to  meet, socialize, and compete with their favorite America sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette.  Fifty nine years later, our organization has grown to the aforementioned size and still continues to have the same interest and focus.  We are the largest organization of Corvette clubs in the country.  Our current organization saying- "We came for the car, we stay for the people" is very applicable to our membership.  We all love our Corvettes and the camaraderie we have built, through our clubs with our Corvette friends, has kept us involved with NCCC.  We host an annual convention somewhere in the country each year and members come to convention to catch up with friends they have had over the years through NCCC.    We are "users" of the Corvette and that usage is seen in a variety of ways.  Many clubs have social and competitive activities during the year.  What is a social event-  every thing from a cruise, to dinner shows, to parades, to local charity activities.  What is a competitive event- a car show, judged con- cours, rallye, autocross, or drag event.  Each club has their own unique identity in servicing their members to their interest in their local activities.  As users of the Corvette in these various activities and as a member of NCCC, we are provided with a third party liability insurance program that is unequaled in value. Our Future Corvette Owners Association program (FCOA) and our Charity Program make us unique in the car club world.  The FCOA program is for family members ranging in age from birth to 16 with its’ main objective to keep the "dream alive"  of owning a Corvette by involving our children and grand- children in our Corvette club activities.  Our participation in a national charity program is with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and is unique among car clubs.  However, our "pay it forward" attitude goes even further as we encourage our individual clubs to get involved in local charity activities in their area as well.  This is a win-win situation for both our members as well as the community. You can look for our group to be actively involved in the Bloomington Gold event in June in Indianapolis.  Geographically, our organization is divided into 16 regions, which includes an Indiana region.  Members from this region, as well as other regions across the country, will be participating in the Bloomington Gold event in a variety of ways.  Look for us in GG12 where we will have our membership information and we will  be helping with the autocross event.  This will be an opportunity to learn more about our organization and get a first hand look at some of our activities. Our web site, www.corvettesnccc.org, is an excellent resource to learn about clubs and activities in your area as we strongly believe that club participation is the backbone of our group.  Check us out at Indy, Carlisle, or Mid America Motorworks Funfest and become part of the greatest group of Corvette enthusiasts in the country.
