Alfa Romeo Owners Club (AROC) Capital Chapter ~ Driving D.C., Maryland, & Northern Virginia Alfas since 1959

The Capital Chapter is one of the oldest among the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, founded in 1959, barely one year after our national Club began. Back then Alfas were rare — hard to find, difficult to maintain, challenging to understand — and the Club gave enthusiasts (“Alfisti”) a place to learn how to keep them happy, to exchange knowledge and parts, and to share their passion. There are more of these cars now, as 21st century Alfas have joined the vintage ones whilst the Club connects us with each other so we can learn more about cars, events, and opportunities. 

If you are an Alfa owner, or someone interested in this century-old Italian automotive brand, we’d love to get to know you and share the thrills of the open road, the show field, and the track!

The Alfa Romeo Owners Club is a national organization. You can join the Club at If you live in our region (Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia), select the Maryland MD (Chapter 04) Capital Chapter AROC membership, to sign on to our Chapter at no additional cost. Joining AROC with the Capital Chapter membership is $68.00 annually.

We look forward to keeping you updated on our club driving events, the annual AROC National Convention, and unique opportunities offered by our sponsors and regional Alfa Romeo studios. With close to 200 local Alfisti members, we hope you join the DMV chapter today and on the next club drive!
