With the future of motorcyclists’ rights advocacy deeply entrenched in the early days of bikers’ rights and freedom rallies, the men and women who started it all knew there were others with similar backgrounds, and they reached out to find us. In September 1985, a few more than a hundred of us met, many for the first time, in a cheap hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.
There wasn’t much at that meeting except introductions and commitments to work together Today, that handful of bikers has grown to touch all corners of the U.S. From “just talking” when we met at the first Meeting of the Minds, the successors of that early group are now making strategic plans for the future of motorcycling and motorcyclists’ rights advocacy.
Friday’s General Session is just the beginning of a weekend packed with nothing less than ten information fill presentations and 15 workshops!! Yeah, the MRF Board took a long look at how the Meeting of the Minds material sort of drifted away from the stuff we were famous for – information filled workshops that provided attendees with the nuts, bolts and tools to help build and maintain their organizations and legislative endeavors.
Workshops from Advocacy – Beyond Face-to-Face to “Kickin’ Ass & Takin’ Names”; from Media Madness to Public Relations; from With Freedom Comes Responsibility to Bridging the Gap between Clubs & SMROs. That’s the “What” of the Meeting of the Minds. That’s the “What” needed to protect your rights, your motorcycle and your lifestyle and there’s a lot more to come.
