Benefits of Belonging to Lafayette Corvette Club
Lafayette Corvette Club is a member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs which was founded as an all volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners and enthusiasts. 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. All LCC members belong to both organizations. Some of the many benefits of belonging to LCC/NCCC are listed below.
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 Indiana’s top competitors at the Indiana Region Awards Banquet held each spring. The top national competitors receive awards at NCCC’s annual convention.
NCCC hosts an annual Convention in different parts of the 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, 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.
A number of companies have formed a friendship with NCCC and offer discounts to its members. You can find out more information on the special discounts for members page on the NCCC Website.

NCCC Scholarship Program
This program has been in existence since 1990 and is funded through donations from Clubs, individuals and corporate friends such as Mid America Motorworks. The NCCC Scholarship Committee awards $1,000.00 scholarships to worthy young people who have some connection with NCCC through a father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, etc., who has been a member of NCCC for at least three years. “Some connection” implies that the applicant’s relatives should have knowledge of the various requirements of the NCCC Scholarship Program. Be sure to plan ahead for next year by reviewing material on the program, including the deadline for submission.
NCCC publishes a national quarterly magazine to keep members up to date on what is happening in their region and nationally. Blue Bars is a wonderful example of the Corvette fun that NCCC generates.
The National Council of Corvette Clubs has a Website that connects over 200 clubs in 16 regions across the United States. The Website is a central location for NCCC members to get information and keep up with what other members are doing. It is home to the NCCC Classified Section which has been effective in the sale of members’ Corvette related items.
The Indiana Region of NCCC has a Website that connects affiliated Indiana and western Kentucky clubs. A calendar on this site keeps members updated on competitive events happening within the Region. In addition, competition points are tracked and posted for the Indiana Region.
