Being a traditional MC, we have a strict process of selection for membership. Being a Marine, Marine Corps Veteran, or active or Veteran FMF Corpsman is only the basic qualification for eligibility. We are a tribe – a family of families – whose dedication to each other knows no bounds, and becoming a part of that takes time and commitment.
We do not recruit members – so no one can expect to be invited to join. In order to become one of the Few you have to ride with us and assimilate into the organization – there are no exceptions to that. We do not entertain membership requests from folks outside the areas in which we have an established presence. We do not honor requests to start remote chapters.
Our exclusivity is not ego-driven; it’s not because we think we’re better than anyone else. It is because of the level of commitment we feel toward our brothers and their families, which is not something we entrust to or can expect from people we don’t know.
All that being said, we welcome guests at all times. We treat our guests with respect and hospitality, so if you are inclined to visit with us or want to join us on a ride, we would be more than happy to have you along. Simply contact us through this website and we will make appropriate plans to meet you.
PROUD FEW MC
We have received several inquiries from folks across the country about starting prospective chapters. The PFMC will approve prospective detachments and chapters under certain circumstances, the first of these being that the founding member must be a Patch Holder in the PFMC. A Patch Holder who moves outside the area of his Mother Chapter may form a PFMC detachment in his area by sponsoring new members in accordance with our bylaws. In the event an entire group wishes to patch over, the Prospective Detachment or Chapter will remain in a probationary status for no less than one year.
Independent requests to start a prospect chapter or detachment will usually be politely refused. This is due, in part, to the sensitivities associated with starting new clubs – especially in those areas where there are multiple Veterans MCs already in existence. The PFMC recommends that if you wish to form a club you approach the clubs that exist in your area and request guidance before soliciting for Prospect Chapter status.
