Dear Prospective Member:
Thank you for your interest in the Corvette Club of Michigan. Please let us extend
an invitation to attend one of our meetings so you can see the Club in operation.
Membership meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month (except in
December) in the service bay of Les Stanford Chevrolet, 21711 Michigan
Avenue, Dearborn. The meeting begins at 7:30 pm and generally consists of a
business meeting, swap and sell, and a program pertaining to Corvettes. Coffee
and donuts are served.
CCM was founded in 1958 by a group of Corvette enthusiasts who shared a
common desire to have fun in their Corvettes. Throughout the years, our
membership has grown to several hundred participants from all walks of life. We
have families with children, couples, and singles that all enjoy CCM activities.
Our goal is to bring together Corvette owners to enjoy each other’s company as
well as their common bond: The Corvette.
Requirements for CCM membership include being at least 18 years of age for
master membership, a valid driver’s license, and proof of Corvette ownership (or
lease). In joining CCM, you will also become a member of the National Council of
Corvette Clubs. Your spouse, companion, and/or youth are welcome to join as
members at a reduced rate. Please see the attached sheet for membership fees.
As a Corvette Club of Michigan member, you will receive a 15% discount on Corvette parts purchased from our sponsor, Les Stanford Chevrolet.
