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.
