    This event is an extension of our Cadillac V-Club V-Performance members only forum where members can connect with GM Engineering and Marketing via the @Engineering and @Marketing topics.  In December, we held our first ever virtual meeting with the GM/Cadillac Headquarters representatives with the Pacific Northwest Region as a "pilot event".  The meeting was conducted using the ZOOM app which you will need to download and install on your computer or mobile device prior to this upcoming meeting. 

    Click on the above ZOOM logo to download.  RSVP registration via CadillacVClub.com is mandatory to confirm your attendance and receive access to the ZOOM credentials necessary to participate in the meeting.  The meeting will begin promptly on February 3 at 6:00PM PST, 8:00PM CST and 9:00PM EST.    

    You will not want to miss out on this unique opportunity to collaborate and share first hand experiences with your fellow V-Club members and the Cadillac headquarters representatives.  This will be an informal discussion, question and answer session with no specific agenda other than to "inform" and "be informed".

    This meeting will be moderated by Gene Hawks, the Cadillac V-Club Seattle Chapter Director.  Due to ZOOM attendee limitations, this event is restricted to only members of the Cadillac V-Club and to the first 100 members who RSVP to attend. If you have a family membership or are a sponsor of the V-Club, please RSVP register only once and share your Zoom meeting session.
