Membership Benefits

Benefits of Belonging to Capital City Corvette Club:

CCCC celebrated 60 years in 2018.

Capital City Corvette Club is a Charter Member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs. NCCC was founded in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners and enthusiasts as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization. The purpose of NCCC was, and still is, to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use of the Corvette! Some of the many benefits of belonging to CCCC/NCCC are listed below.

Community Involvement and Charities:

CCCC is involved in our community. Each year we raise funds for the VFW National Home for Children, Children's Miracle Network, Greater Lansing Food Bank and other local organizations. Since 2005, approximately $120,000 has been raised by CCCC members for the benefit of those less fortunate. In addition, we offer our support to the Capital Area Muscle Car Club as they raised $60,000 for Sparrow Hospice Services. Visit our Community Involvement page for more information.

The NCCC Charity Program holds a raffle each year to raise funds for St. Judes Children's Research Hospital. In past years NCCC raised more than a half million dollars for the National Kidney Foundation's U.S. Transplant Games.

Competition Programs:

In order to encourage interactivity between individual clubs, NCCC has organized a comprehensive National Competition Program. We have a set of Rules that are nationally recognized and followed. A National Points Standing compilation is maintained by the Vice President of Competition and a Regional Points Standing that each Regional Competition Director is responsible to maintain. Trophies are awarded to Michigan's top competitors at the Michigan Region Awards Banquet held each spring. The top national competitors receive awards at NCCC's annual convention.

In addition, CCCC has a Points Program that encourages members to organize, work at, or participating in a variety of fun activities. The Top Ten participants receive an award at our spring banquet.

Conventions:

NCCC hosts an annual Convention in different parts of our country each summer. NCCC members come together from across the nation for a week of getting to know each other. Every day is filled with Corvette related activities such as drag racing, high and/or low speed events, funkhanas, rallyes and car shows. Day trips are often available for individuals that aren't involved in competition events at Convention. At the end of the day everyone gets together for a fun filled evening of entertainment, dancing, or just relaxing and visiting with friends.

Visit the NCCC Convention Page for information on past, present and future NCCC conventions.

Discounts!

CCCC's sponsor, Shaheen Chevrolet, offers members a 10% discount on parts and labor in their service department. When in the market for a new or used vehicle, members can contact our club liaison, Ben Behnke. Ben will work to get members to get their best deal.

In addition, many national companies offer discounts to NCCC members. Others donate a percentage to NCCC when a member purchases their goods or services. Discount information is available on the Discounts page of NCCC's Website. Links are included to the websites of these companies.

Future Corvette Owners Association:

You can click on the FCOA logo to visit the Web page.

Since 1991 the Future Corvette Owners Association (FCOA) has been the youth organization of NCCC, the largest non-profit Corvette organization in the United States. A unique Corvette club for kids, it has Mid America Motorworks as its main sponsor. FCOA projects are also supported by other major automotive-related businesses. Its mission is to instill and then maintain an interest in the Corvette hobby within the younger generation. CCCC members currently sponsor 41 children in FCOA.

Insurance:

Insurance is a complex and sometimes confusing subject to understand with many individuals. Frustration in trying to understand coverage can create a mentality as to why do we even need it. Visit the NCCC insurance information page to help understand what the NCCC policies are, who is and is not covered, and what is and is not covered. And don't forget, many insurance companies offer discounts to individual members of NCCC.
