Building a new GWTA chapter can be a
very rewarding experience and a lot of fun, too. All it
takes is a few riders and their families who are willing
to put in the effort to seek out other riders to join them
in some riding and social activities. Show them a great
time, then ask if they would be interested in becoming
part of a GWTA chapter you are founding. It's easy to
approach people who have a common interest with you
(motorcycling) and strike up a conversation. Invite them
to join you and some friends on a ride you are planning.
Every new rider you show a good time to and recruit will
become another recruiter. Like the proverbial snowball,
the bigger it gets, the faster it goes.
If you've spent some time studying our Web site to learn
about our organization, you will have discovered our
members own GWTA and our sole purpose is to bring riders
together to enjoy a variety of activities and of course
riding our machines, regardless of brand.

How are GWTA Chapters constructed?

of other useful information about GWTA. The manual can
also be printed from the
Document Library on this site, it is in PDF format;
printing instructions can be found in the library. You
will find a
Chapter Registration Form there as well.
Are founding members of a new chapter recognized?
Yes they are. All members of a new chapter who are on the
chapter roster within 90 days of its registration can wear
chapter founder rockers that can be added to
their four inch GWTA logo patch. Their dedication to the
task of bringing new friends into the GWTA family is much
appreciated by all members.
