Welcome to to the Club!
Welcome to the Mustang Owners Club of Southeastern Michigan (MOCSEM). Joining a club and learning about all the procedures and activities can be a bit overwhelming. This section describes how to get started with the club and covers some of the benefits that are available to members. We encourage all members to attend General Meetings and other MOCSEM events to fully take advantage of the benefits of membership. Feel free to introduce yourself to other members at an event. This is a very open, active club and we want everyone to feel welcome and included.
When you join MOCSEM you are issued a laminated membership card. This card is used as proof of membership at club events and with businesses that offer discounts to MOCSEM members, so keep it handy. The card also contains your membership expiration date. Upon renewal, you are issued a new card with a new expiration date.
General Meetings are usually held the second Tuesday of each month and are open to all members and the general public. See our calendar for location and other details. Meetings begin at 7:30 pm, but many people begin arriving at 6:00 pm to mingle and to enjoy a buffet dinner that is served at 6:30 pm. Meetings feature board member reports, club business, speakers who cover a variety of Mustang-related topics, open discussion and a 50/50 raffle. There is routinely between 100 and 150 people in attendance at General Meetings so they are a great chance to learn about the hobby and network with others who hold a similar passion for Mustang. Always confirm the meeting date, time and location on the website calendar.
The club Board of Directors meets on the first Tuesday of each month. While the general membership does not normally attend these meetings, any member in good standing can bring an issue before the Board either in writing or in person at the Board meeting. If you have an issue you would like to present to the Board, you may contact any Board member to make arrangements.
MOCSEM is a very active club that organizes many events throughout the year. Events may include car shows, cruises, cruise-ins, overnights, dinners, road rallies, special tours and more. The biggest event of the year is the Mustang Memories Car Show and Swap in August which draws about 1,000 cars. There is something for everyone. Do as much as you like or as little as you like. Just check out the Calendar section of this web site for complete details about activities offered by MOCSEM. Please note that some events are offered exclusively to MOCSEM members and others are open to guests and anyone else who loves Mustang. Any specific restrictions will be listed on the calendar.
Every job done at MOCSEM from the Board to show workers is done on a volunteer basis. It is only through the efforts of these volunteers that MOCSEM can continue to be an active thriving club. Please consider volunteering your time in some capacity. The biggest need for volunteers is for workers is at Mustang Memories, but with such an active club there are also needs all year long in many different areas. Unless you're in a coma, we can use your help! Just ask any Board member where you can help out or get on our email list and you'll receive announcements telling you when volunteers are needed.
A variety of MOCSEM logo and other Mustang related merchandise is available to purchase through the club. Items include apparel, accessories and more. Merchandise can be purchased at any General Meeting and at some major club events.
