CLUB ROLES

The President is the Chairman of the executive committee and also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the chapter. All matters between the club and any outside organization, business or other persons are brought to the President for him to take action on. If the President is not available to attend a chapter meeting, the Vice-President shall serve as the Chairman. The President does not make motions or second any motions and he can only vote on actions where he would make a tie vote or break a tie vote. The President acts as a personal representative of the club and is able to judge items that are not in the chapter’s rules. He is a liaison between other motorcycle clubs, public relations and law enforcement. He represents the club in any business contracts and promotes the club life among members and family members.
The Vice-President supervises plans for club events and coordinates the committees. He also relays information between the President and the Members of the chapter. Any questions, comments or concerns of other committee members are brought to the Vice-Presidents attention. The Vice-President is the second in command underneath the President and he assumes all the duties of the President in his absence.
The Secretary is responsible for keeping all of the club records, written reports and correspondence between outside organizations. He calls role at the committee meetings and takes notes on each meeting. He is also responsible to notify any members of special meeting times and dates other than the normally scheduled meetings. The Secretary is in charge of telling any members of an election or appointment if it was made while they were not present at a meeting. He maintains the constitution of the club noting any changes to it and handles all written club correspondence.
The SGT at Arms makes certain to uphold all the laws and rules of the club. He ensures that all the committee orders are carried out as quickly as possible and he keeps order at all club events. If he sees any member acting in a way not supported by the Club, he reports it to the committee. The SGT at Arms is in charge to strip patches and colors from members who are removed from the club by retiring, resigning or being impeached or expelled. The SGT at Arms defends and protects the club members and prospects and is directly responsible for their security and safety. He keeps records of data that relates to the club security. If he sees any type of threat or perceived threat to the club in any manner, he will bring it to the attention of the Executive Committee for appropriate actions to be voted on. The SGT at Arms keeps the clubs firearms and weapons in safekeeping.
The Royal Liaison is the Royal Attache to the club. Set asside for all current affairs and connection with the ROyal Family for events, rides and respectable occasions to attend. Also to keep a link for news and updates to her majesty the queen. To maintain a good rapport and most importantly to maintain the image and reputation of the household the club respects with love and honour.
The Treasurer keeps all the financial records of the club. He collects the income from all operations and is responsible for paying all the bills or expenses of the club, while keeping written records. The Treasurer reports the club’s status on payments owed and due at each committee meeting to the members. He may also provide the committee a written report of the financial status at the annual meetings. The Treasurer is also responsible for maintaining all of the club patches that are un-issued as well as a record of the patches and colors that each member has in their possession. The Treasurer collects all dues and fines from the club’s members.
Everything the role of President entails but at Mechanised unit level to run the relevant unit, reporting to the O Group where necessary.
Everything the role of Vice President entails but at Mechanised unit level under the unit commander
The Road Captain plans all unit runs and tells the Secretary of the plans for a run in advance. When he is on a run, he is the ranking officer if the President and Vice-President are not present and therefore leads the unit/club formation on the ride. If the President/commander is on the run, the Road Captain rides at the front of the group with the President/Commander. He is in charge of enforcing all club rules while on a run and he chooses a supervisor for maintenance on all the club vehicles while on a run.
only to be worn by founders of a mechanised unit only. one of the first 5 members to set up and form a chartered unit.
for any member that has been on operational tour while serving
The Founder of a motorcycle club is the person or persons that start a particular chapter within the group. As soon as they get their motorcycle, they are considered the Founder, as a chapter creator. If a Founder is active in the chapter they will be considered the President and have the same duties as a President. If there is a Founder and a Co-Founder or two Co-Founders, they will most likely retain the titles of President and Vice-President with their duties respectively. The Founder or Founding Father always has a vote in all officer elections. In the event that a Founder or Co-Founder dies, the principal officers of the executive committee hold a vote for a new President and/or Vice-President. The committee consists of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and SGT at Arms with the Road Captain included as a non-voting member that replaces any of the committee as an alternate.
