The questions and answers below will help explain the role of Council and the benefits of joining.
WHAT IS THE COUNCIL OF MOTOR CLUBS?
The Council of Motor Clubs (CMC) is an umbrella organisation of more than 140 car, motorcycle, commercial and military vehicle clubs and organisations, including museums.
WHAT DOES THE CMC DO?
The CMC represents the interest of all motoring enthusiasts through its dealings with both government and non-government organisations. Council was involved in the development and implementation of the new Conditional Registration Scheme. Through its association with the national body, the Australian Historic Motoring Federation, Council has obtained approval for the use of Avgas in certain vehicles that require high-octane fuel. Furthermore the CMC seeks to ensure that legislation at both the state level and nationally does not impinge on the use of older vehicles on the roads.
The CMC also organises the Shannon Eastern Creek Classic display day held at Eastern Creek Raceway each August. This event attracts over 1500 vehicles of every make in a magnificent display and attendance is only available to financial CMC member organisations..
Council produces a Calendar of Events listing all the major motoring events happening in NSW. Council also publishes The Preserve with various items of interest to the classic vehicle movement. Council holds a general meeting every two months. Each club is encouraged to send a couple of delegates to the meeting. Matters of general interest are discussed, with the occasional guest speaker.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Annual affiliation fees to Council are very reasonable. Small clubs pay $35.00 per year and the fees go up on a sliding scale to a maximum of $205.00.
