Meetings & Events






How To Join -- You will need to become a member of the Buick Club of America. You need not wait until your membership is confirmed, you merely need to apply and then you can apply for membership.

Restrictions -- Other than being a member of the National (Buick Club of America) and living within a 150 radius of Grand Rapids, there are no other restrictions. You don't even have to currently own a Buick to join. We have had several people join for the purpose of locating a Buick to purchase.

How Are We Organized? -- Every two years in November we elect officers who conduct meetings and plan activities. We operate under a "constitution" which is on file with the BCA.

When and Where Do We Meet? -- Our scheduled meeting time is typically the third Thursday of each month (with the exception of December) but it may vary during the summer months, depending upon scheduled activities. The "where" varies almost on a monthly basis. We like to meet in different places and usually at a restaurant.

Why Should You Join? -- If you own, or would like to own, a Buick, sooner or later you're going to want to tap into the resources that only a group of dedicated Buick owners and lovers can offer. Everything from technical advice, restoration techniques, an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, sourcing parts and repair services -- it's all there! Owning, driving and enjoying your Buick should be a fun experience and membership can provide the "connections" to make it happen.

How Much Does Chapter Membership Cost? -- We charge only $25 for membership. Please mail check to Jerry Drews, 6117 N 6th St, Kalamazoo, MI  49009

How Does The Chapter Raise Funds? -- Chapter may raise additional revenue through our annual banquet/auction in January.
