Register Groups (Special Interest Groups)
The PCA Register Program is a new opportunity for members interested in networking with owners of specific Porsche models.
The PCA Register program was established in 1995 to encourage closer relationships within register groups in PCA. The program allows PCA members to network with others in their specific area of interest. Sharing of information fosters restoration and maintenance of member's automobiles. A register can potentially provide a new resource for historical displays at Parades and other PCA events, along with information for articles in Porsche Panorama.
Applications for new registers are subject to the approval of the PCA Executive Council. See Starting a New Register Group below for more information.
