It is that time of the year once again, International Dues payment. I have sent an e-mail to all the chapter @redknightsmc.com addresses, all the Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers, as well as all the Members At Large. A number of these bounced back so if you have not received it, please let me know so I can ensure we have your correct e-mail address.
Fortunately, the dues rates have not increased for 2015. Unfortunately, they are still just as confusing as always. The International Board just met and confirmed these are to be the dues. I am also in the midst of tweaking our SOGs and by-laws to make sure there are no conflicts between the table below and these documents. If you recently paid dues based on the way the SOGs are written and paid more than outlined below, please let me know and I will credit your chapter.
If you have any questions, I will certainly do my best to answer them.

Our Mission Statement
To promote motorcycle safety
We are a club for members of the fire service, and their families, who enjoy riding motorcycles.
Membership is open to all firefighters; active, retired, volunteer, professional or industrial, who have access to a motorcycle and hold a valid motorcycle driver’s license.
These three items are the only requirement for membership. An individual member is never required to purchase any Red Knights® patch or any other Red Knight® regalia especially as a requirement of membership.
If a member chooses to purchase a Red Knights® patch or other regalia, it is the property of the individual and is not required to surrender it upon the individual’s retirement from the Red Knights®.
The Red Knights International Motorcycle Club® does not allow prospecting for members. There is no probationary period for Active members in the Red Knights®. There is no “granting” of patches in the Red Knights®. The right to become an Active member in the Red Knights® and to wear any Red Knights® regalia is earned by being or having been a Firefighter.
If a person is voted into a Chapter, after a credentials are checked, or joins as an MAL, that person has immediate full membership rights and may purchase and wear any Red Knights® regalia.
Spouses, partners, member’s children, brothers and sisters and parents are welcome as Social or Junior Members.At present, a minimum of seven firefighters are required to Charter a new Chapter but we have hundreds of Members-At-Large.
The Red Knights® names and logos are Registered Trademarks.
Being a member in good standing, gives you permission to identify yourself as a Red Knight® and wear the names and logos but it does not give you permission to reproduce them on any type of material, including web pages.
Members may contact the Web Master with any questioins about the web site. You will need to give your real name and Chapter or MAL affiliation.
Obtaining Permission to use the Red Knights® names and logos
By Vendors, Associations, Chapters or Individual Member must be obtained from the International Secretary following the procedure outlined on this page.
