The AACA national annual meeting held February 5-8 was a great time. This was a different experience for me since I am now on the National Board. My official duties are that of VP of Library & Research Center and Assistant VP of Membership. I was also placed on various committees: Youth Development, Volunteer Recruitment, Event Planning & Development, Training & Development and Scholarship Review.  The four day event sped by industriously to say the least. All I can say is that I am grateful for the opportunity and honored to be a part of the best collector car club in the world. I look forward to serving the members to the best of my ability.

It was also good to see a variety of Ohio Region members attend. In fact, Cindy Robish and Danielle Troyer received Master Editor Awards for the Canton Chapter Newsletter and the Spark Plug respectively, Bill Lytle won the Thomas J. Wells Memorial Award whose continued performance has contributed to the success of the judging program, I won the George R. Norton Membership Award for significantly contributing to the development and growth of AACA membership and Jim Vandenberg won a Webmaster Award of Excellence for www.aacanorthernchapter.com  web site . You can only get back what you put in and what you experienced at the Annual Meeting. I am looking forward to seeing more of the Ohio Region’s members attending future events.

Webmaster Award 2013 N Chapter 300x233 AACA ANNUAL MEETING 2014


Once a year, the Western Reserve Historical Society puts on a fundraiser. This year’s event was titled “Somewhere in Time: Cruisin’ Thru the Fabulous Fifties” The party was held at the Crawford Auto & Aviation Museum on Saturday January 25. Our very own Chapter member’s Scott & Pamela Isquick were the Honorary Co-Chairs. Scott has been a part of the Ohio Region, initially called the Cleveland Region, since its inception back in 1946. He was also an Ohio Region President in 1961. It was a pleasure for my wife Sara & me to take part in the festivities. The inclement weather did not detour the over 450 enthusiastic and generous guests from attending.
