We are delighted to announce the launch of the AROC Online Archive this weekend.
The Archive has initially been populated with the Club magazines from Volume 1 Number 1 published in January 1967 up to the end of 2019. This is a rich story of the history of AROC, the people who created and drove its growth and laid the foundations for the Club as it exists today. The range and depth of the information in it is extraordinary.
An announcement has been included in the June edition of our Alfa Romeo Driver magazine which is arriving at members' homes as we speak.
A podcast has also been recorded and will be released this Sunday, in which you will find out the background and process we went through to get all our magazines online for our members!
The Archive can be accessed from a link on the main web site (look in the 'Members' menu) or directly from https://archive.aroc-uk.com. To protect our copyright and legacy of AROC it is accessible to members only, and you will be asked to log in at each visit using your normal membership details.
This is the first step in establishing an online resource for members. It has been designed with expansion for other material in mind; you might like to consider what else could be posted there for the benefit of all members. Examples that spring readily to mind are: brochures; Section newsletters; technical material; or just photos from events. The scope of what is placed in the Archive is limited only by your imagination (and copyright where this applies)!
Have a look at our Archive today, and see some of the fascinating articles over the last fifty years. It really is a treasure trove!
