A message from our President
As I think about the CV&CCC, I’d like to say it's an honor to have the opportunity to serve you as your President. I’m very grateful to have an enthusiastic group of officers along with our wonderful members that have worked and devoted personal resources which makes the CV&CCC the strong and successful organization we are today.
As I assume this role, I keep in mind the trust and belief I have in our officers. They are a group with exceptional drive and a common goal to get projects done in a timely manner. I look forward to working with each of them to accomplish our goals and contribute to the overall mission of our club which is to give back and to lend support to the community we all live in!
One of the many objectives in 2017 is to further enhance our presence within our community along with building our relationship with area GM Car Clubs!
We plan on continuing to improve communications and strengthening mutual efforts between our club and its members! As these relationships are nurtured, the officers will continue to represent the interest of our members and present a cohesive voice while participating in committees, and legislative processes.
In addition, the Officers of the CV&CCC will look to reach out to our members and engage those who bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our club. We encourage all of our members, new as well as seasoned to share their views, experience or expertise by submitting articles for the club newsletter.
As your President I would like to personally encourage you to get involved! .
We proudly support the hard work of the National Corvette Museum in their never ending mission - the celebration of the Corvette's invention, and the preservation of the legendary automobile's past, present, and future. The Museum will serve as an educational and research model for all to enjoy.
“You need to be a part of what is happening. You need to watch it… to witness it. The caliber of competition we are facing, all these new cars, this is going to lead to some of the closest, most exciting racing ever. I can’t wait until the next race. Five years from now, this will be the year everyone will be talking about.”
