From the “Annual Charter for H.O.G. Chapters – Preamble”
“The Harley Owners Group© (H.O.G.) is an organization founded and sponsored by Harley-Davidson© Motor Company. The group was established to offer motorcycling benefits and services to Harley-Davidson enthusiasts throughout the world, and to develop a close relationship between the Harley-Davidson rider, the Harley-Davidson dealer and Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
The opportunity to start an independent Chapter affiliated with the Harley Owners Group is offered to bring members together for the common interest of promoting motorcycling activities. The goal of each Chapter is to generate an increased level of enthusiasm for riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The Chapter shall be a family-oriented and a nonpolitical organization.”
Article IV – Membership
“All Harley Owners Group members may join any affiliated Chapter. An expired membership in H.O.G. automatically terminates local Chapter membership.
It shall be the responsibility of each local Chapter to ensure that Chapter members are current H.O.G. members and to maintain on file in the Chapter records a signed copy of the annual Chapter Membership Enrollment and Release Form of each Chapter member.
It shall be the responsibility of any person applying for, or renewing, membership in a local Chapter to provide proof of his or her National membership as a condition of eligibility for membership.”
“While the Harley Davidson Owners Group is best known for their Toy Run, that’s just one of many charitable activities the Rocky Mountain Chapter 0421 of the Harley Owners Group (RMHOG) is an integral part of. Just before Christmas, members of the club donated platelets at The Children’s Hospital, adding to their list of philanthropic work. The platelet donation wing of the hospital opened its doors just for the club on a Saturday, a day when they are usually closed.”
“… in Aurora, hundreds of bikers took toys to Children’s Hospital Colorado. The annual event brings smiles to brave faces during the holiday season.”
