To be a member in good standing one must make no less than 3 meetings and 3 events per year. If meetings are a problem because of work one must donate time to help organize a run, parade, fund-raiser, demonstration, and/or speak at schools each year.

At all other times, Military members must attend meetings and events. If deployed, they will remain a member of the Chapter they joined until they return or transfer to another chapter.

Rolling Thunder®, Inc. relies on volunteers to donate their time. If you cannot volunteer your time and attend meetings, please do not sign up for membership in our organization. We can only accept you as a member if you can donate your time to the issue. We thank you for considering membership in Rolling Thunder® Inc.
