To remain a member in good standing, the following requirements have to be maintained.
The following requirements apply to all members.
• Attendance in, four events and four meetings in a year. If you cannot meet the requirement, your membership
for the next year will be moved to inactive.
• Attendance of meetings and events is tracked and recorded so signing up on the website confirming
your attendance for either or both is important to maintain your membership.
• Attendance is not counted if you belong to another club and you are working their event or a registered
attendee in that club’s event, even if ACC may have listed it on our events calendar.
• Plus logging into our ACC Web Site at least once every 90 days. If you cannot maintain the website
requirements, your membership will be placed in suspension, and held in an inactive Roster and you
will be informed by email that you are outside of the club communications.
• Married members can maintain attendance, website contact by one or a combination of the two.
• You can request the Web Master restore your communication.
• If your inactivity is a total of 180 days your membership is moved to inactive. If your inactivity continues
for another 180 days your Membership will be removed and moved to past members.
• If you have a valid reason, it maybe possible that your membership can be restored to a member in
good standing, providing you made your minimal purchases of ACC ID materials, and also emailing
Steve Bracken stating the reason for your inactivity. If you have NOT made your purchases of ACC ID
Materials, you will be classified as a new Provisional Member.

These 3 Rules must be respected in order to remain a member in good standing with ACC
1. You cannot be disrespectful of your fellow member, their car(s), or others in the car community
2. Members acting in a hostile way, being disruptive, argumentative, and, or creating drama.
3. If you have traded or sold your Corvette and do not plan on buying another within one year

ACC’s Goals
We seek to have other Corvette owners join us by becoming a member of Amazing Corvettes Club
and participating in our events. We will support other Corvette club’s events and encourage our
members to support our events and others we are attending. It is our desire to have a friendly
relationship with other Corvette owners and Corvette clubs. Ultimately ACC seeks to have members
who want to have fun by participating in the activities and events of ACC and being leaders of
events and activities for ACC.
Existing Members and Additional Considerations
Members who have joined ACC prior to Feb 1st 2019 are not subject to the purchasing requirement
for membership. However, they are expected to show their pride in ACC by buying ACC ID\
Materials and wearing them at meetings and events. So please comply by buying and wearing ACC
ID Materials and displaying the ACC windshield sticker. It is highly recommended that the older
members do so and show their pride and support for their club.
Honorary Members
People who have impact on the car community and are of potential benefit to ACC but are not
Corvette owners may be awarded honorary membership by the leadership. Any member can request
an honorary membership for someone. But the request, plus the reason for the request must be
emailed to the Coordinator Steve Bracken.
ACC will try to have a different speaker of interest at least three times a year to keep members interested.
Starting with February’s Dinner Meeting the meeting time will move to our original Dinner Meeting time
of 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. To 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Dinner will be from 6:30 PM to 7:45 PM.
Meeting will be from 7:45 PM to 9:00 PM.
IMPORTANT
ACC does not make these changes in the requirements to become a member or to maintain your
membership lightly. The driving reasons behind it are as follows. ACC is a lot more popular than
anticipated. Presently the number of registered members is close to 700. The data requirements to
maintain history and backups of a database of that size have become a large task requiring time
and disc space. Since this club was formed without dues and we wish to continue that format
changes have to be made on the computer demands. Why changes? It is because every person in
a leadership position are volunteers that are donating their time and resources to the health and
well being of ACC. Being that The equipment and time is donated to maintain such a large
database a solution was needed. In digging into the detail of the membership it was discovered
that we have had many people sign up as a member but never attended a meeting or an event.
In other words inactive members, just the opposite of our goal, we very much desire active members.
So instead of just eliminating people from our membership roles, we decided to put some
requirements for joining and maintaining membership in place. Of course if you do not have any
desire to maintain your membership you will in time be removed for our active roster, the decision is
totally up to you. If you decide that you cannot meet the requirements and would like to be removed
from the active membership, please notify me by email. However, if you are considering meeting the
requirements to maintain your membership then we are delighted you have chosen to remain as an
active ACC member. I will be glad to provide you a new electronic membership card, if you send your
request for a new membership card by email to me. Each year you will be issued a new card for that
year informing our suppliers offering discounts that you are an active member and as such eligible for
a discount.
