2024 CORSA Director Nominations Window Opens

CORSA members, this is your opportunity to help the organization and become part of the Board of Directors to help direct and steer our club into the future.

The Openings:
Up to five Director positions that will be up for election in 2024; two in the Eastern Division, one or possibly two in the Central Division and one in the Western Division. Four of those positions are currently held by incumbents who may or may not choose to run again.  (The number of board positions for the Central Divisions will be dependent on the backfill of a currently open position).

Job Description:
The roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors are described in the CORSA and CPF bylaws posted on the CORSA website. We also have a Division Director job description there. Log on to the CORSA website at and click on CORSA Rules, Forms, etc.

Code of Conduct:
Directors are now required to read and sign CORSA’s new Code of Conduct policy.

Nomination Process:

To be nominated for election, send a brief notice of intent, submit a recent portrait photo, and write a brief bio and statement on how you plan to contribute to CORSA as a board member. The due date is February 10, 2024. The submissions should be sent to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 480-251-7177.

To be considered, you must be a CORSA member in good standing. If you are elected your term will begin at the CORSA Board meeting during CORSA’s 2024 International Convention in Dayton, Ohio.

We invite you to become a member of the Corvair Preservation Foundation.  The CPF operates the National Corvair Museum and maintains the Frank Winchell Memorial Scholarship Program.

These are annual memberships that offer unlimited museum access and a very convenient way for everyone to help support the CPF and keep the museum open for all to see and enjoy.

Our museum exhibits are always changing so visiting often has a different perspective.

You do not need to be a member of the Corvair Society of America to be a Corvair Preservation Foundation member.  Dues are $45 per year and will be processed through the CORSA web site.

Remember your CPF membership card admits you to the National Corvair Museum as many times as you want to visit.
