Chapter Membership renewals are happening now!  

Notes re HOG membership renewals for 2019:

IN THIS NEW SYSTEM - if you don't renew your membership, your membership will automatically lapse, and you'll have to join again as a new member (with a higher joining fee) to retain your membership. You've been warned!!! frown

Reminder to ensure your HOG Membership is current BEFORE  renewing your AK Chapter membership.

  • PLEASE NOTE - You have to be a current paid up member of HOG before you can be an AK Chapter member.
  • There are no exceptions to this – as this is part of our Ak Chapter Charter.
