Winter 2023 Mid-America Conference of Clubs Quarterly Meeting
January 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The story of the Mid America Conference (MAC ) begins in April, 1969, with the creation of what is now known as the Atlantic Motorcycle Coordinating Council, the first multistate organization of this kind east of the Mississippi. According to the club news highlights for 1969 published in the last issue of WHEELS, the magazine of Cycle M.C., the founding clubs of the AMCC were 2nd City of Chicago, the Vikings of Boston, SMCLA and the Spartans of Washington, D.C. Its insignia was designed by Roger Torkelson of Second City, and the summer run hosted by Second City M.C. of Chicago in Michigan in July, 1969 was its first ” official ” run. In the same month, Empire City M.C., the Rocky Mountaineers of Denver and S.N.C. joined the AMCC. In February, 1970, the AMCC changed its name to the Atlantic Midwest Coordinating Council and WHEELS was ” designated best vehicle for disseminating Council news.” The importance of this organization is that it provided a model for all later regional conferences such as the MAC. The AMCC met quarterly, and gradually clubs outside the area began to be aware of its existence. It thus served as the model from which all subsequent organizing of leather/levi clubs in the East, Midwest and South would be drawn.
