NCM Updates - Apr 2020
Former Board Chair, Leslie Gardner, is hosting a bi-weekly telecom with some of our favorite Corvette Celebrities. Below is the information on how you can participate.
I host this telecom every other week. I have the dates listed further down. Please add to your calendars. A calendar notice won’t be provided.
This is a simple call in. Not zoom, WebEx. No charts or visuals. To me it’s like the old days sitting around the radio. Feeling more nostalgic as time goes on during our pandemic. I think you can relate.
Our next telecom is scheduled for:
Thursday April 9th at 12pm pacific time
VIP guest speaker is Kai Spande, Corvette Assembly Plant Manager!
I have the following speakers lined up for future telecom dates.
Harlan Charles, Chevrolet Corvette & Camaro Product Manager
Doug Fehan, Corvette Racing Program Manager
Ray Battaglini, Founder, First President and Chairman of the National Corvette Museum (he has stories you have not heard. How the museum was established and the challenges and triumphs etc. Very enlightening!)
Please invite all club members and enthusiasts you know. They do not need to be a NCM member. More the better to share. Even if they are interested in the museum or not, love the C8 or prefer front engine corvettes, Corvette Racing fans or not. This telecom is to give those interested an hour break during our coronavirus isolation. It’s good to socialize as much as we can!
If we need to go beyond May 21st, I can certainly schedule more. If isolation ends prior, I can cancel the telecom.
Here’s the call in information -
Date: Thursday April 9th, April 23rd, May 7th &May 21st
Time: 12pm to 1pm pacific time
Call in number: 425-436-6383
Access code: 777462#
Dick Bottis, Past President of Corvettes of So Cal and present Treasurer, has offered to help me during the telecom by providing his cell number for call in questions. I will provide his number at the beginning of the April 9th call. Participants can text him with a question or comment to be read during the hour.
Prior to the meeting I welcome questions from NCM Ambassadors and club leaders. I will send questions collected to the guest speaker prior to the telecom. I think that worked well.
I do have to warn from freeconferencecall.com (service provider I use) that the system may overload and callers may get the busy signal or dropped calls. Just try again. Millions and millions of people are making calls during this pandemic.
Please take care, be safe and if anyone needs to reach out for help or want to chat between telecoms, let me know.
So remember ... same day, same time and same call in info ... every two weeks.
