Antique Motorcycle Foundation Leadership Forum Set for July 19, 2012

The Antique Motorcycle Foundation will host a leadership forum for organizations whose primary purpose is the promotion and enjoyment of vintage and antique motorcycles in Mansfield, Ohio on July 19.  This will be the third year for the meeting.  Its purpose is to provide educational opportunities and to give leaders throughout the vintage and antique motorcycle community an opportunity to network and share solutions to common problems.   Created In 2007 as  a non-profit, tax-exempt educational foundation part of the purpose of this foundation is to tell to the public at large the important story the motorcycle has played in the evolution of technology and culture in the industrialized world.

This year’s Forum will include discussions about club and event liability, communication, and membership marketing and retention.  Hal Johnson, Chairman of the planning committee states, “We’ve found the formal discussions led by experts to be most useful, but you cannot underestimate the importance of dedicated and likeminded vintage and antique motorcycle enthusiasts just getting together for networking and idea sharing.”  He adds, “Some of the most useful ideas have come out of informal, free-flowing discussion.”  A light dinner will be provided to facilitate discussion and social interaction.

While the meeting is by invitation only, the planning committee has sought ways to expand participation.  This year, vintage and antique motorcycle enthusiasts who may be hoping to create a club or organization are invited to apply to a member of the planning committee.  Also, local and regional vintage and antique motorcycle clubs and chapters are invited to apply.  There is no fee for participation.

For more information or to apply to attend, contact one of the following: Hal Johnson, Roger Smith, Fred Guidi, or Ed Youngblood

    Is this that VintageGestapo bunch thats trying to promote Worldwide Regulations to prevent modifying and/ or customizing Classic and Vintage M/C’s ala Jeff Decker / Simon Mills / Big Sid etc ?

    If so y’all can just guess what my opinion is of this organization

    If not – Mea Culpa and apologies in advance

    ( and if not , someone please clue me in to the correct name of said VintageGestapo organization so I don’t wind up falsely offending folks not deserving of it )

    Enjoy the vintage bikes for what they are. I ride mine all across the country and world. Just completed a 4100 mile ride to Wash DC on a 1945 Indian Chief. No rules, just fun. The Antique MC Club of America does a great job as well as its local chapter. Less rules are better. Ride em don’t hide em. Enjoy the ride.
