  • MEETING OF THE MINDS 2021 -- Sixty days is cutting it close

    September 10, 2021, the rapidly approaching cut-off date for hotel and registration for the Motorcycle Riders Foundation’s 37th Annual Meeting of the Minds conference is too close to put off any longer. 

    Think about the past sixty days… After nearly 18 months, the country was just starting to come out of its pandemic cocoon.  The MRF was putting finishing touches on what turned out to be a very successful Bikers Inside the Beltway, you were watching the early sprouts from your gardening endeavors, taken your favorite ride for a longer ride than the winter allowed, and were thinking about a large get-together for Independence Day. 

    Now with just sixty days remaining before the registration cut-off, you’re cleaning up after your July 4th celebrations, thinking about a long weekend ride, or maybe even a ride to Sturgis. If you’re getting this electronically, then you don’t even have to get up off your chair to register.  Use this link to register:  Meeting of the Minds 2021

    Based on the input we received after Meeting of the Minds 2020, the MRF has “up’d our game” and this year’s event promises to rival anything we’ve done in the past few years.

    The Meeting of the Minds, with a little more than 48 hours for keynote speakers, dynamic presentations, and at least 12 workshops, will keep you busy from the time you check in until you’ve checked out.  Plus, you’ll still be sorting through your notes and the material long after you’ve returned home! 

    Although we jam a lot into the Meeting of the Minds weekend, there’s always time for you to network with new and old friends.  That’s an added benefit when 400 motorcyclists’ rights advocates are in the same place at once.

    If you’ve been following the MRF’s successes in Washington, D.C., then you know that those successes don’t happen just because a hundred bikers meet with members of Congress.  In our world, successes happen because you’ve taken the time to educate yourself on the issues, attend workshops and stay active on behalf of motorcyclists’ rights. 

    If our history repeats itself, we’ll have workshops with standing room only.  We’ll have keynote speakers and presentations that will enlighten, entertain, and provoke you into even stronger commitments to the fight to protect motorcycling and the freedoms we enjoy.

    Don’t cut it close.  Follow these three steps and register today for the 37th Annual Meeting of the Minds.
