Ambassadors

The National Corvette Museum acts as the steward for all Corvette enthusiasts, by fulfilling our mission to celebrate the Corvette’s invention, and preserve the legendary automobile’s past, present, and future. The Museum will serve as an educational and research model for all to enjoy. The Museum was opened on Labor Day weekend in 1994. At that time, the NCM stated that the Museum belonged to all the Corvette enthusiasts and therefore it was their Museum.

The NCM is helping to fulfill that commitment by continually improving on program that encourages and facilitates participation from the Corvette enthusiast community in the future development of the National Corvette Museum.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Ambassador Program is to provide Corvette clubs/organizations a two way communication link to the NCM. This program provides several opportunities to offer support through participation and involvement in the functions of the Museum. Corvette clubs/organizations can play an important role in the mission of the National Corvette Museum by providing the NCM and its staff guidance and assistance.

FUNCTION

Each participating Corvette club/organization will nominate/select an “Ambassador” to act as the liaison of that club/organization to the National Corvette Museum. The person selected to be an “Ambassador” will have a distinct interest in the success and future of the Museum and be at least an active Individual member of the NCM.

The Ambassador’s mission will be that of receiving and disseminating the most current and correct information from the Museum, and to convey that information to their local Corvette club/organization. The Ambassador will act as a Museum representative to promote and solicit support for the Museum through promotional activities and encourage other Corvette enthusiasts to join the Museum. Additionally, the Ambassador will be the voice of the Corvette club/organization, communicating concerns, ideas and suggestions to the NCM.

Selecting an Ambassador

The Corvette club/organization shall submit an application naming its selection of an ambassador to the NCM. The Ambassador must be a minimum of current Individual member of the National Corvette Museum. The NCM will process the application and mail the Ambassador their welcome kit. The selected Ambassador will then be the point of contact for the NCM. Ambassadors are encouraged to attend NCM membership meetings. At least one Ambassador meeting will be held each year in conjunction with our Corvette Celebration each Labor Day Weekend.

The National Corvette Museum communicates to our Ambassadors through e-mails on our Ambassador E-mail list, NCM eNews, Facebook, Twitter etc. The Ambassador Facebook page is also a forum to be used among the Ambassadors to share ideas with each other and the Museum. The Corvette clubs/organizations are invited to send their club newsletter to the NCM to be included in the library. Ambassadors are encouraged to contact Stephanie Morrill at any time for assistance with projects or questions.

Program Updates

To make the program more effective, we are transitioning the points system to a calendar year, versus the June/July program previously used.  This will coincide with club elections much better. Points will be accumulated from January 1 to December 31 and recognition will take place during the Bash.  This will be an extended points reporting time frame as we will not collect points sheets until January 2020. Point requirements are 200 for Master and 50 required to remain an active Ambassador.

Ambassadors that do not submit points will receive notification of removal from the program.

We host three Ambassador meetings each year.  The first is in conjunction with our Bash event the last weekend of April, the second as part of our festivities during the Corvette Celebration Labor Day Weekend and then our two day Ambassador Convention held the beginning of November each year.  Stay tuned on the facebook group for updated dates and times.
