It is not the club’s responsibility or intention to conform to the needs of individual members, but in fact it is the responsibility and expectation that prospects and members come with a servant’s heart to both their brothers and our nation’s military veterans, conforming to the needs of the club in order to meet our mission. The mantra of each person seeking to earn and keep their patch should be, “Club first. Brothers always”. The actions taken by the CVMC are guided by the purposes of the club, executed in accordance with the bylaws and policies of the club, and in keeping with the protocols and expectations of traditional veteran motorcycle clubs. Leaders have a responsibility to the mission, the brothers of the club, and the traditions of the motorcycle club world in order to preserve the integrity and longevity of the club.
