The Council was originally named "The Council of Veteran, Vintage and Thoroughbred Motor Clubs". Being a somewhat unwieldy name, many enthusiasts referred to it as "Fred", less of a mouthful. In recent years, the Council became an incorporated body and was re-named as "The Council of Motor Clubs, Inc.".

The CMC is also affiliated with the Australian Historic Motoring Federation, a national organisation uniting similarly orientated councils from around Australia.

The role of the CMC is a representative one – it represents affiliated clubs and their members with authorities such as the RTA with reference to Conditional Historic Registration, the Federal Government on matters such as leaded fuel and its continued availability, and such like. At no time is the Council a "controlling" body; it may issue guidelines or advice on an issue when requested, but it will never tell an affiliated club what to do.

THANK YOU
FROM THE
PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on to all our members a big THANK YOU for your efforts in assisting the CMC to raise much needed funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.


Due to YOUR efforts, the CMC received an invitation to attend cocktails with the His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia and Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove, at Admiralty House on the evening of Tuesday 21st November, at which time the assembled group of people were formally thanked for their fundraising and volunteer efforts. Our President, Terry Thompson OAM, and I attended the event on behalf of the CMC.


The evening began with three speakers. The Governor-General, Mr Jim Hughes, PCFA National Chairman, and Vietnam Veteran and Cancer survivor, Garry Conyers, who has been instrumental in raising over $360,000 for PCFA. The speeches were brief, informative, and inspiring. The need for Aussie men, especially those over the age of 50, to have regular checks for Prostate Cancer was drummed home with regularity.


Garry Conyers spoke about his10-year battle with Prostate Cancer; how the results of intense research have kept him alive for 10 years, years which he wouldn’t have had to see his grandchildren born, and about his continued efforts to raise awareness and funds, and just as important, his ongoing, hands-on support of Prostate Cancer suffers.


Admiralty House is a beautiful example of quiet elegance and is indicative of many of our heritage buildings that were constructed early in our history with foresight and imagination, taking our climate and surroundings into careful consideration. Beautiful sandstone, high ceilings and filled with portraits of people important to our history and many beautiful antiques. And colourful gardens, in full springtime bloom at the moment.


The speeches were conducted in the Salon and, because the weather was ideal for it, we moved outside to the Croquet Lawn, overlooking the Harbour, for refreshments and photos. Sydney Harbour is, to my mind, the most beautiful harbour , and was displayed in all its glory that evening.


The fare was a mixture of modern Australian Cuisine and, some good old Aussie favourites like mini sausage rolls, which we were told are Vice Regal favourites.


From conversations I had with some of the other attendees, I have confirmed my opinion of Sir Peter Cosgrove as one of Australia’s true champions. A man who is deserving of our respect and admiration for the care has taken of our citizens in whatever role he has undertaken.
Once again, from myself and the CMC Committee to you all. WELL DONE !
