The National Corvette Museum acts as the steward for all Corvette enthusiasts, by fulfilling their 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 by starting the National Corvette Museum Ambassador Program.
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.
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.
