Membership is open to anyone - male or female - who owns or has access to a motorcycle. Membership can be acquired by filling out an application and completing a prospect phase. Applications can be filled out and scanned / emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Chiefs MM one-time membership fees are $150 per person. We encourage everyone to register with the AMA (American motorcycle association) and submit your AMA member number on your application. Prospective members are eligible to participate as they demonstrate evidence of striving to adhere to these guidelines.

All patches will remain property of the Chiefs MM and will be returned when leaving ministry unless voted otherwise.
Patches are to be worn to all official functions (we encourage you to wear your patches every time you ride).
Patches will never be defended with violence (if you are requested by another motorcycle club to remove your patch you will do so without further discussion or attitude). This is for the safety of our members.
Do not use the Chiefs patch for your social media icons or profile picture on social media: Facebook, Twitter, etc. To do so implies that you speak for everyone in the ministry. You may, however, use a photo of yourself wearing the patch, but not so close up that all that is seen is the patch.
Patches are to be treated with respect, not mistreated or disregarded. They are to be worn proudly as a sign of commitment and love for Jesus Christ.
All members are required to abide by the Chiefs bylaws. Failure to do so will result in a documented warning as agreed upon by the Chiefs officers.

Chiefs make no distinction between men and women in terms of membership or what kind of bike you own.
