Welcome to the Southern California Chapter of VCOA
This is SoCal VCOA, or "SCVCOA" for short. Founded in 1999, we are an official chapter of the Volvo Club of America. VCOA is a non-profit organization and all officers and directors are unpaid volunteers.
MEMBERSHIP IN VCOA
The Volvo Club of America is a national organization of Volvo owners and enthusiasts. We welcome and encourage participation of owners of ALL years and models of Volvo. Joining VCOA has many benefits. This local chapter does not charge any additional membership fees. We also welcome non-member guests to any and all of our events.
Basically, if you love Volvos as we do, and you're not yet a VCOA member, we can't think of a better time than right now to join. It's an excellent value. As a member of VCOA you will receive a subscription to our national club magazine, Rolling (which is the finest car club publication on the planet). You'll have access to useful discounts at various Volvo dealers and other related businesses. To join VCOA, you may click on any 'join VCOA' link or go to www.vcoa.org.
SOCAL CHAPTER HELP BEING SOUGHT
The position of Chapter President for this chapter is currently vacant. If you are interested in leading this chapter, please contact the VCOA chapter coordinator at: http://www.vcoa.org/club-overview/chapters/form-a-chapter.
The SoCal Chapter is also seeking members who would like to help make this a better chapter by volunteering a little time with some of our local meets. Or if your interested, consider volunteering to organize a local get-together, Volvo drive, show 'n' shine, or BBQ in your area. SoCal is pretty BIG. We can definitely use more representation in most areas of Southern California.

We add Volvo Club events continually… club meets, shows, drives, etc. Our calendar also includes many non-VCOA events that might interest you, including local events hosted by Volvo Sports America where all Volvo owners are invited.
