October 2012 monthly email updates from AROC

It is my understanding that all AROC members with current email addresses on file with should be getting this email. I am pasting it here in case you didn't receive it. If you want to click on a link contained within this copy you will have to copy and past it into your web browser. If you got the AROC email the links in it are already hyperlinked: Buongiorno, to Alfa Romeo Owners Club members of the AROC chapter Mid Atlantic. This is the next installment of the monthly email from the AROC Board of Directors to AROC members, keeping you informed and hoping that you’ll do the same for us. The contents of the emails will change each month but we will keep the contact links for getting support for your Alfa at the end of each email so you will know where to look for them. The First New Alfa Arrives in January!!! The production version of the Alfa Romeo 4C will make its worldwide introduction at the North American Auto Show in Detroit, January 19-27, Click on the AROC facebook page at he bottom of this letter to see a photo of a 4C being tested. AROC Dues Notices by email Beginning in November AROC is going to add email as a new channel to remind you to renew your AROC membership. This won't replace the regular postal mail, but it will give AROC a different mechanism to remind you. You will receive the reminder email shortly before your membership is about to expire, just like the postal mail reminders. Since it comes near your membership expiration date most of you won't see the your renewal email for several months, when your membership is about to expire. The emails will make it easy for you to renew online using the link in the email. The renewal emails will be coming from the same email address as the monthly emails: Where to find virtually anything for any 1956-1995 Alfa Romeo The updated 16-page Alfa Aftermarket Parts and Services PDF is available for download. All information was reviewed, the hyperlinks updated and tested, new companies added and closed ones deleted. Find what you need for any 1956-to-1995 Alfa by clicking on this link: Nominations for Directors for AROC national Board Nominations for six directors to be elected next year are due by January 15, 2013. Each year, six directors are elected to serve on the Board of AROC for two-year terms. With a total of twelve positions, the terms are staggered. If you are a chapter member, the chapter can nominate you for a position on the board. Your chapter President should have a copy of the nomination form. It will require three chapter officers to sign your nomination. Alternatively, any member can be nominated by petition by placing your name and address on a sheet of paper and have 15 current AROC members both sign and print their names, nominating you to run for the board. A nomination also requires a short biography (250 words or less) and optional photo to be printed in the March issue of Alfa Owner and on the online voting website. Voting will conclude on April 15, 2013. Note: There can be no more than two Directors from the same Chapter. Send Nominations and bios to Jolene Justus, AROC, P.O.

Let our Advertisers know When you place an order with an AROC advertiser, please make an effort to let them know you saw the ad in the Alfa Owner or on the AROC website. It helps to keep the advertisers buying ads from us. Holiday Gifts It’s time to order AROC jackets, shirts, caps, emblems, and other gifts for the holidays and before the stock runs low. Take a look at what’s available at the AROC Store: A column of merchandise categories is located on the left hand side of the AROC store page. If you don't want to pay for 2nd day or overnight shipping, orders must be placed by December 17, 2012 to get to you by Christmas. For Hanukkah a first day gift would need to be ordered by November 29th. A Kwanzaa first day gift would need to be ordered the same as for Christmas. While we’re on the topic, we are getting ready to order some new colors for the AROC golf shirts. Nothing is guaranteed on the new colors but send your color preferences to Jolene and and we will use your suggestions to help us decide on the new colors.
