Motorcycle clubs and associations can charter with TMRA, and gain additional benefits, as well as the opportunity to serve. Club affiliation allows you to write a column in our monthly magazine, Daimler’s folly, to promote your club and activities, place your club's annual activities on the TMRA calendar, and reduced rates for advertising your flyer in Daimler’s folly. It also promotes communication and cooperation between clubs. We are recognized as the family-oriented state association, and our events are family friendly.
How to Charter Your Club
It's easy to Charter your Club with TMRA. There are six (6) steps involved in the process:
STEP 1: You need six club members who are also TMRA members.
The club submitting a TMRA Club Charter Application must have at least six (6) members who are also current TMRA members, or 50% of the Club's membership must also be current TMRA members, which ever is less, to qualify for a new or renewal Club Charter.
STEP 2: Send in Charter Application along with $35.00 Charter Application Fee.
The Club is required to submit a $35.00 annual Club Charter Application Fee along with a new, or renewal application to TMRA Central Membership Services.
STEP 3: TMRA Area Vice President Visits the Club.
The Area Vice President or the appointed representative will visit a business meeting of the Club applying for a TMRA Charter. He or she will explain the goals and objectives of TMRA and investigate the history, activities and morals of the Club.
STEP 4: New Charter Application Recommended for Approval.
The visiting TMRA representative will forward the Club Charter Application with a written report to the Area Vice President for approval.
STEP 5: TMRA Charter is issued.
Upon approval by the Area Vice President, the Club Charter Application is forwarded to Central Membership Services who will process the application and issue the initial Club Charter to the Area Vice President for presentation to the Club.
STEP 6: Twelve (12) Month Probation Period.
Upon issuance of the new club Charter, the Club will begin a twelve (12) month probation period. This period will start from the Charter Date. During this probation period, the Chartered Club is required to have a representative present at their Area General Membership Meeting.
If you have any questions, or concerns about chartering your club with TMRA, contact the Area Vice President. They will answer any questions you may have.
