Latin American Motorcycle Association Worcester
The Latin American Motorcycle Association was founded in 1977 in Chicago’s notorious Humboldt Park neighborhood. Since its inception, L.A.M.A. was intended to be a Moto-Touring Club with truly democratic ideas. In 1995, a Chapter was formed in Miami, Florida and in 1996 L.A.M.A. became a National Association when the first national president was elected. In 1999, L.A.M.A. became an International Association when Chapters were formed in Puerto Rico, Mexico & Cuba. Today, the number of chapters has grown to over 160 worldwide spanning the Americas, Asia, Europe and the “land down under” Australia. L.A.M.A is a club without borders. We have evolved into an “International Humanist Association”. We accept working people from all walks of life, regardless of nationality, race, color, religion, social class, gender, age, brand of motorcycle, etc. We believe that it is more important to recognize and identify ourselves as Human rather than Latin, Asian, Black or White! L.A.M.A. is a club of the 21st Century and continues to be a work in progress. Our forward progress evolves from the many contributions and the flow of rich ideas of our members, both current and new, from near and far-off lands. It is because of our philosophy, L.A.M.A. has become one of the most respected clubs in the world.
As a L.A.M.A. member there are doors opened to you in every city where we have chapters. You will have the opportunity to visit those chapters, including those in other nations on our Annual National and International Runs. L.A.M.A. is also recognized as one of the most active long distance riding clubs in the world. (35 plus years and counting!) Our women (DAMAS DE LAMA) “Ride Their Own” and accompany us on our travels, riding extreme distances over long hours on good and bad roads, on hot and cold days, rain or shine. This is truly a test of endurance that most bikers find way too far and/or too challenging.
Any person desiring membership to the Latin American Motorcycle Association shall make application furnished by the L.A.M.A. International. You must fill out the application for International membership with a forty dollar ($48) check payable to Latin American Motorcycle Association. You will then receive an International membership patch to be worn on the front left side of your official black leather vest (below name tag) a “P” patch, to be worn on the back of the vest for a period of no less than 6 months, as well as a membership card. The date on your application is the official start date of your L.A.M.A. membership. The International membership fee is due on or before January 1 of each year, regardless of your starting date.
An active member can acquire colors for a wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend by having the significant other fill out an application for an International spousal membership, circle spousal on the application have the active member sign it where it says “sponsor” and pay the International membership fee which will thereafter be due on January 1 of each year, payable to Latin American Motorcycle Association.
An associate member is an individual who supports the Latin American Motorcycle Association but may not have the time to fulfill the requirements of a chapter member. The associate member has the privilege to participate in all L.A.M.A. activities hosted throughout the world. Associate members are members at large and do not wear colors but wear the distinctive International Associate member’s patch and yearly renewal rocker. In the event of membership termination or resignation, the member agrees to return all International and National patches (worn on vest) to L.A.M.A. and accepts the fact that there will be no cash refund
Upon completing three (3) months as a “Prospect” the membership committee of our chapter will vote to promote the “Prospect” to “Probate.” If the new member is promoted to “Probate” he or she will be offered the privilege to wear the LAMA rockers.
