To establish a successful working relationship between the AMA and a chartered organization, both parties must have the same goals and objectives. Therefore, we ask that every charter adopt the mission to promote the motorcycle lifestyle and protect the future of motorcycling.

However, it’s not enough just to promote the interests of motorcyclists. A motorcycle organization must exist in two worlds: motorcycling and non-motorcycling.

A responsible organization is concerned with how it coexists with the community at large and, at the same time, must not be antagonistic or hostile toward other factions within the motorcycling community.
