Norm Uhlir Regional Activity Award
 

The Norm Uhlir Regional Activity Award was created in honor of Cadillac & LaSalle Club Past President Norman Uhlir to encourage greater activity by chartered regions of the CLC. It is awarded annually to the region demonstrating outstanding overall activity in the following areas:

  4. quality reports and articles submitted by members of the region to The Self-Starter,
  5. participation in Grand Nationals,
  6. special activities such as regional club projects, especially if beneficial to all CLC members.

The award is presented at the Grand National the following year.

Newsletter Excellence Award
 

The Newsletter Excellence Award is presented each year to recognize the outstanding effort of the regional newsletter editors. The award is presented at the Awards Banquet of the Grand National.

Newsletters are reviewed and evaluated on many factors: content, originality, style, interest, humor, timeliness, format, illustrations, membership participation, and general improvement.

A regional newsletter editor often has the most time consuming job among the officers. Creativity and self-discipline are prerequisites for the position.

A timely and informative newsletter is a major link in the success of a region. As is The Self-Starter to the national club, so is the local newsletter to the region. The newsletter fosters information flow, open communication and last, but not least, participation and camaraderie among members.

The award is presented at the Grand National for excellence during the previous calendar year.

This award was presented to the following individuals:

2001 - David Rothman, Editor and Publisher
2010 - John Barry, Editor and Publisher




Web Site Excellence Award
 

The Web Site Excellence Award is presented each year to recognize the outstanding efforts of a Regional or Chapter Webmaster.

In view of the rapid migration toward the use of electronic media, many Regions and Chapters have set up Web pages and message boards. As more of our members use the Internet as a communication and information tool, these websites have grown in popularity.

Inspired by the CLC website, many Regions and Chapters have expanded their local websites to include photos, stories, Regional and Chapter activities and links to other areas of automotive interest.

The Webmaster's job has become one of creativity, skill, imagination, and self-discipline. It is a vital and powerful link, not only to members of the CLC, but also to anyone surfing the Web in search of automotive information.

Websites also act as powerful and indispensable servants in the attraction of new members, not only to our Club, but also to the automotive hobby in general. The Award is presented at the Awards Banquet at the Grand National for excellence during the previous calendar year.

This award was presented to the following individual:

2015 - Jeff Hansen, Web Mechanic
