We have two Facebook pages. A closed group for ONLY Pocono Region members, located at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/258901401772/
And we have a public page for everyone else, located at: https://www.facebook.com/PoconoPCA/

To contact our Board of Directors please use the “Contact Us” form below.

We’d love to hear from you.

We’re the Pocono Region of the Porsche Club of America, and we’re car people. We’re not Porsche owners because they’re expensive. We’re Porsche owners because they’re fun! We get together because we like each other, and we think you’ll like us too! Drop us a line, try out a meeting, ask a question; we’ll be happy to help in any way we can with your Porsche experience.

Use this form to contact our Board of Directors with any questions or comments.

Pocono Region is looking for volunteers for the following 3 Chair positions for 2021:
Insurance/Safety Chair–obtaining insurance certificates from National for all Pocono Region moving car events.  We have less than 10 of those events a year.
Membership Chair–sending a welcome email to all Pocono Region new members each month and reporting on the membership status at the Board of Directors meeting and Membership meeting each month and maintaining a roster for the oil can drawing at each Membership meeting—which, by the way, is at $252.  Must be present to be entered and win!
Web Chair–this is a managerial position only.  Our website is produced and maintained by a professional Webmaster.  Your would only need to funnel information about Pocono Region events to him and act as a liaison between the Region and the Webmaster.
Because we are a small region, these positions do not require a lot of work.  A chair gets you a position and a vote on the Board of Directors meetings which are held via Zoom (for now) on the second Tuesday of each month.  Please contact Margie Becker if you would like more information on any of these positions.
Hello Pocono Region members:
Happy Holidays and Best Wishes, especially for staying safe and healthy!
Since our Pocono Region Christmas Party at the Beaumont Inn was cancelled due to the COVID restrictions, we will be having a regular December monthly membership meeting instead. It will be on the usual 3rd Tuesday of the month—December 15th.
We have decided to go a bit upscale from our usual meeting places to get everyone in the holiday mood. It will be held at Momento’s Restaurant on North 9th Street (Route 611) in Stroudsburg. https://www.momentopizzeria.com/. Please check out their website for how they are handling dining during the COVID pandemic and to look at their menu.
It is one of the finest dining establishments in the Poconos and even though it is a pizzeria, they do not have pizza for dine in, only take out. We can only take a limited number of people, so please RSVP as soon as possible (but no later than December 11th) to Margie Becker jimmar(at)ptd(.)net. Reservations are required. Walk-ins will not be accepted. Once you have RSVPed by email, please send a check, made out to “Pocono Region PCA” for $20/per person and send it to Margie Becker (ed: See email blast for address.) Your reservation will not be counted until a check is received. You will get the check returned to you at the meeting.
We will be ordering off the menu and everyone will pay their own dinner. There will be a short meeting and installation of officers. THERE WILL BE NO ZOOM MEETING THAT EVENING. There will also not be an oil can drawing that evening since we will not have any Zoomers with us. Put on your Christmas sweater and your mask and join us in person for the last meeting of 2020. We want to thank the outgoing officers for their hard work and welcome in the new officers. Hope to see you there!
Should we have to cancel this meeting, due to increased COVID restrictions, all checks will be returned. If anyone is coming to the meeting from a distance and wishes to stay overnight, please contact Margie Becker at 570-977-0000 or jimmar(at)ptd(.)net for information on accommodations.

Unfortunately, the December Meeting/Christmas Party/Holiday Celebration has been cancelled. This results from the current guidance for restaurants and indoor gatherings that precludes us from meeting our expectations for the event.  We are working on a location for a regular meeting at a nice restaurant in December.  Let’s all hope that 2021 will be much better.


Here is the Pocono Region’s election information –


This notice/post serves to inform you of our slate of Officers for 2021.  The nominees are: President – Marge Becker; Vice President – Beth Herwig: Secretary – Trish Slusarczyk; and Treasurer – Ed Slusarczyk.  The election will occur during the November Membership meeting (3rd Tuesday, November 17th, location details to follow)

This will be an outdoor event under their tent and will be held rain or shine. Registration is required and there can be no walk-in participants.

Breakfast will be served between 8:00 AM and 9:15 AM,  At 9:30, we will have a special check presentation to the American Red Cross with officials from the Pocono Raceway and American Red Cross from our Drive for the Red Fundraiser held this past July. Following the check presentation, there will be the opportunity to take a short 30 mile drive on some nearby Pocono winding roads.

Only New members will receive a coupon voucher for your breakfast good only for the  time and day of the event.  Regular members will be responsible for their own breakfast check but still must register.
