News from the VCA President’s Meeting!

I had the honor of representing our Club at the Annual VCA President’s Meeting in Arizona on January 20th. It was great to see the other Regional Presidents and our National Officers. It truly is an AMAZING organization and our National Officers and Board Members work extremely hard to make our Car Club the best in the world. I am happy to report that our VCA is in healthy financial condition and our relationship with Dodge, SRT and MOPAR continues to flourish above and beyond all expectations. Proof is in the facts: VCA Membership is UP! Club sponsorship by Vendors is UP! VCA website traffic is UP! The VCA is now 100% managed and run by Viper owners. VOI-12 is OFFICIAL. This all in spite of a bad economy and no 2011 model Viper. Things are very positive and we all should be very excited to be a part of it.

Some of the highlights from the meeting:

We have a new Western Zone Director……. Dan Everts Congratulations Dan! Dan had to run against some other very qualified members for this position and won by vote. I am sure he will be a great addition to the VCA management team and I look forward to continue learning from him.

The Gen 5 Viper unveiling party is officially going to be on April 4th. How much support is the VCA getting from SRT? More than you can imagine. Being a VCA member definitely has its benefits. If you have not yet renewed or joined the VCA, I encourage you to do so ASAP! There are a limited number of spots available for the SRT Unveil Party on April 4th and it is an INVITE ONLY affair. Invites will go out to VCA Members FIRST! This will fill up extremely fast and non members will not likely even get an invitation in.

Want to buy a Gen V Viper? They will begin production in the Fall and the first cars will be delivered in December. All VCA member orders will get filled FIRST!!! There are already 100’s of people on the order list. If you are a VCA member, you car will get assigned and built ahead of all other orders.

VOI-12 is official and there are some incredible things on the agenda for us. This will prove to be even BETTER than VOI-11! Yes, there will be Gen 5 cars at VOI for us to check out and drive!!!

2011 flew by and I expect that 2012 will do the same, but I am excited and energized to be a part of this great Club. Thank You for your support and look forward to increasing our Club Membership by bringing new events and cruises to our coming year.

See you all at our next event!
