The objectives of the club are as described in our mission statement. The club organises rallies, fun runs, monthly meetings and outings – as well as publishing a quarterly journal giving club news, details of vehicles for sale, information on vehicle restoration and including articles of general interest. Various club sections run events especially suited to their own interests and classes are usually included in club rallies for these sections. The club also has a website www.ivvcc.ie. The IVVCC is the Irish representative for FIVA www.fiva.org
Membership is open to any person owning or interested in motor vehicles within the various classes described above. Application for membership should be made to the membership secretary on the form available from the Membership Secretary and also by download from the club website www.ivvcc.ie. All subscriptions are due for renewal on January 1st in each year but those who join after October 1st will be covered for the following year. The yearly subscription covers the club quarterly journal which is posted to members.
The club’s monthly meetings are held on the first Monday of each month (second Monday if the first one falls on a public holiday). The current venue for monthly meetings is West County Hotel, Chapelizod. Meetings start at 8pm and the presentations commence at 8.30pm. These presentations range from talks, film shows, slide shows, marketing nights, etc., and also provide an opportunity to exchange information and general social contacts between members.
