AN OPEN LETTER TO THE MEMBERSHIP
Hello to all Red Knights, 7/26/2014
To all those who made the trip to Prince Edward Island last week, it is safe to say we all had an incredibly GREAT time! Huge thanks goes to all the members who had a part in hosting us for convention 2014.
Shortly after the Annual Business Meeting, The Board met to discuss a couple of items, and the International Treasurer, Leo advised the Board that he is tendering his resignation as of August 31st, 2014. The Board then entered a closed session to discuss the personnel matters at hand. Per By-Law 3.05, the outcome of that meeting was to appoint Scott Ryan as the International Treasurer effective September 1st, 2014. The Board further discussed the appointment for the opening of the Region 2 Director position effective the same date. Although the board did have the right and ability to appoint a region 2 replacement at that time, the board decided it would be in the best interest of all members to allow those qualified and interested members to make themselves known. All region 2 members will be notified about the vacancy directly with instructions on how to have those interested apply to be considered for the appointment of the remainder of the Region 2 term.
We all owe a lot to Leo as he steps down from the Treasurers position. Leo has served on the International Board in various positions for over 20 years. Leo has been an important voice to me for the 3 plus years I have been an officer.
We welcome Scott to the position of International Treasurer; his professional career has taken him to hold his current position as the Manager of Finance for Charlottetown, the Capitol to the Province of PEI. We look forward to being able to have him utilize his financial expertise and training to help the Red Knights.
Loyal to our duty

Our Mission Statement

To promote motorcycle safety
To project a positive image of motorcycling
To enjoy the community of firefighters
To engage exclusively in social, charitable, and educational activities directed at the general understanding of, competency, sportsmanship and participation in the sport of motorcycling.


We are a club for members of the fire service, and their families, who enjoy riding motorcycles.

Membership is open to all firefighters; active, retired, volunteer, professional or industrial, who have access to a motorcycle and hold a valid motorcycle driver’s license.

These three items are the only requirement for membership. An individual member is never required to purchase any Red Knights® patch or any other Red Knight® regalia especially as a requirement of membership.

If a member chooses to purchase a Red Knights® patch or other regalia, it is the property of the individual and is not required to surrender it upon the individual’s retirement from the Red Knights®.

The Red Knights International Motorcycle Club® does not allow prospecting for members.  There is no probationary period for Active members in the Red Knights®.  There is no “granting” of patches in the Red Knights®.  The right to become an Active member in the Red Knights® and to wear any Red Knights® regalia is earned by being or having been a Firefighter.

If a person is voted into a Chapter, after a credentials are checked, or joins as an MAL, that person has immediate full membership rights and may purchase and wear any Red Knights® regalia.

Spouses, partners, member’s children, brothers and sisters and parents are welcome as Social or Junior Members.

At present, a minimum of seven firefighters are required to Charter a new Chapter but we have hundreds of Members-At-Large.
