About Us

The Corvette Marque (pronounced "mark") Club of Seattle, or CMCS, had its first meeting of record in August 1963 and was incorporated in November 1963.

The purpose of the club, as defined in the Constitution and By-Laws, is to provide an association for owners of America's only true sports car, the Corvette. CMCS full membership is limited to Corvette owners, spouses and significant-others.

Both men and women Corvette owners are members of CMCS. The women have been and continue to be vital to the club's success and actively participate in directing club functions. This is clearly evidenced in their high visibility in their roles as club officers and committee chairpersons.

The overall diversity of the club membership allows the group to benefit from the various talents of its individual members, yet the common interest in Corvettes welds a strong bond of friendship and cooperation.


club activities

Through its various activities, CMCS strives to add to the natural enjoyment of Corvette ownership while providing social interaction with other Corvette owners. Club meetings are typically held at dinner time at various restaurants or banquet rooms in the greater Seattle area and often include a program of interest to the membership or are preceded by an activity such as a tour.

CMCS sanctions extensive and varied activities that:

  • Promote pride in Corvette ownership
  • Further the interests of Corvette owners
  • Provide technical information to Corvette owners
  • Promote interchange of general and technical Corvette related information
  • Encourage safe and responsible driving habits

associated with other sports car and automotive organizations

NWACC LogoCMCS members have contributed significantly to the major sports car organizations in the Pacific Northwest. Since the founding of CMCS in 1963, nearly every SCCA Corvette race driver from the area has been a member of the club. 
CMCS was instrumental in the formation of the Northwest Association of Corvette Clubs (NWACC), which is an association of Corvette clubs in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia. The first president of NWACC was a Corvette Marque Club member.  Links to other Corvette and automotive web sites can be found on our LINKS page.  We are also a member of the National Corvette Museum
