2024 Saab Owners Convention: Portland, Oregon



SOC 24 PORTLAND: The Year of the Local Club.



The Saab Club of North America (SCNA) has selected the Pacific Northwest as the location for the 2024 Saab Owners Convention (SOC 24). You should book your hotel room immediately.


Holiday Inn Portland – Columbia Riverfront

July 18 - 21, 2024

For volunteer opportunities, go to the SCNA Volunteers page.


Over the coming weeks we will be discussing the specifics of the convention, and NWSOC leadership will be working with SCNA to better understand our role and the scope of the volunteer effort that is expected of us. While we expect to provide key NWSOC volunteers for certain roles, we also expect to draw on other local Saab enthusiast groups. While some of this coordination will take place on the regional Facebook groups, we hope that our new online community can become a hub for local SOC 24 discussions, and can be used increase NWSOC member engagement long-term.


NWSOC's new online community (the non-Facebook option): https://nwsaab.mn.co/


A new section of our online community has been added, and it includes two spaces for discussing the SOC 24. The SOC 24 General space is our primary member-facing discussion forum for all things SOC 24, and we may add more spaces for public discussions later. There is also a Volunteer Opportunities space, which we plan to use as a landing location for members that wish to discuss the volunteer effort with SOC 24 ambassadors so we can facilitate the discussion around our volunteer effort with the appropriate SCNA committees. Note that our online community can also be accessed by following the link at the top of our the nwsaab.com website.


It is important to note that today, access to these spaces is restricted to NWSOC membership only (just request to join this section and we’ll try to approve you as soon as possible). This is to ensure focused discussion and effective planning/coordination with SCNA. After registration is open and the details of the convention are disseminated far and wide, we will create a public SOC 24 space to encourage general community discussion about the convention. This will be a forum to ignite broad community discussions about the convention, and extend our enthusiasm to Saab fans across the country. The idea here is to provide nationwide convention attendees to have a space to discuss local drives, hangouts, etc. without having to rely on Facebook.


The full text of the SCNA announcement is posted below.
