SAVE SVTOA! (Please Read - NOT a joke!)

SVTOA members and friends – time to raise our voices!

With all the changes taking place at Ford, many of the new management folks don’t see the value in supporting the SVT Owners Association. For more than six years, SVTOA has been a club where SVT owners and ALL Ford owners and enthusiasts have been welcomed. At one time, SVTOA membership was nearly 30,000! And up till now, SVTOA is the ONLY club or group “officially” sponsored in part by Ford Motor Company.

The time has come to make OUR voices heard in Dearborn! As SVT and Ford owners, we are a seriously enthusiastic and loyal group. Members, former members, Chapter Leaders, Dealer Advisors, SVTOA On Track students and instructors – WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!

As part of a North America-wide email campaign, write an email and let your voice be heard! Tell Ford WHY SVT and SVTOA are important to you.

Send your emails to info@svtoa.com ASAP. We have been assured by our National staff that ALL OF THESE emails will be passed on to the folks that NEED to hear about the importance of our group and our loyalty to Ford products.

This is no joke. We stand to loose a LOT more than just our SVTOA On Track events...feel free to contact me at Stanger58@aol.com if you wish to confirm, but those of you that know me know I would never yank your chain on an issue like this...I would rather you spend your time writing and spreading this call to action to as many SVTOA members and friends as possible.

Thank you in advance for your support! :allhail:

Not to be picky but SVTOA is not 6 years old, it's not quite 5 yet. SCMC however, is going on it's 7th year. Did you know that SVTOA was modeled after the HOG group and began because SVT saw how successful SCMC was? (Hence, SCMC is going on 7 years old). Just wanted to get the facts straight for ya! :thumbsup:

I have already sent a letter to Phil Martens, VP of Advanced Product Creation, and it most likely fell on deaf ears. I also got an e-mail concerning this topic from someone who is in the know and here is an excerpt from it. It doesn't sound like your club is going away, just changing administrative folks.

I write this last note to you with a heavy heart as myself and the team from Affinity Development Group bid you farewell. Many of you may already know this, but for those of you who do not, Ford Motor Company has selected a new agency to manage the National side of the SVTOA. So as of January 1, 2006, a new team will be in place. I am certain that there will be communications from Ford and the new team in the near future to advise you as to all of the new details. Until then, hang tight.

This is one reason why SCMC stands on its own as far as management, financial strength and volunteers. You never have to worry about things like this going on, too much politics. I wish you guys good luck with your endeavor. :)
