Visit the National BMW CCA site for membership details and to join the Windy City BMW Chapter.

The BMW Car Club of America and the BMW Car Club of America Foundation are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our members, chapter leaders, boards, staff, and guests. Last week we published our first statement in reaction to the Covid-19 Pandemic. At that time, we promised to carefully monitor the situation and all communications from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); federal, state, and local governmental agencies; and local health officials to keep abreast of this ever-changing situation.

In this instance the most simple and effective way to curb the spread of this disease, as well as protect both ourselves and those around us, is by removing ourselves from the path of community transmission.

To that end, the BMW CCA Board of Directors voted to approve the following: Beginning at 5:00PM ET March 20, 2020, and running through June 1, 2020 at 5:00PM ET, BMW Car Club of America chapters and members are prohibited from engaging in any in-person events or gatherings under the umbrella of the BMW Car Club of America.
