During the 120-day trial period, a member must attend three meetings and or events. Members must be loyal and courteous.
If a member meets his/her obligations before the 120 days are up they are entitled to receive their Boot patch, provided they meet all other (loyalty and conduct) requirements.
A new member must make 3 meetings or events, or a combination thereof, during the 120- day trial period to become a full member. Anyone who joins and does not meet his/her obligation will be terminated from this organization.
After a member completes his/her first year (from the day they receive their boot patch) as a member in good standing then they will be issued the Eagle & Rocker. (Effective 10/1/01)
To be a member in good standing one must make no less than 3 meetings and 3 events per year. If meetings are a problem because of work one must donate time to help organize a run, parade, fund-raiser, demonstration, and/or speak at schools each year.
Members in the Military are exempt from meetings and events only when they are on Official DUTY, TAD, TDY, DEPLOYED or under PCS orders. At all other times, Military members must attend meetings and events. If deployed, they will remain a member of the Chapter they joined until they return or transfer to another chapter.
Rolling Thunder®, Inc. relies on volunteers to donate their time. If you cannot volunteer your time and attend meetings, please do not sign up for membership in our organization. We can only accept you as a member if you can donate your time to the issue. We thank you for considering membership in Rolling Thunder® Inc.
Membership dues are $30 per year and due during the month of January. If a member’s dues are not collected within thirty (30) days from the February meeting, the Chapter may terminate that member.
Membership applications may be obtained by attending a chapter meeting. Check the calendar for the next available meeting.
