How to join the Santa Maria H.O.G. Chapter

Step #1

Make sure you are a member of National H.O.G.

Step #2

Download the Chapter Membership Enrollment Form And Release and fill it out completely with no stray marks on the form.  If you have to correct something then line through it and place your initials next to the correction.  This release form is considered a ‘Legal Document’ with National H.O.G. and Harley-Davidson.

Chapter Membership Enrollment Form And Release

Membership is currently $24 a year per member. Our year goes from January 1 through December 31 starting in 2024.  Dues are nonrefundable and we do not prorate dues for new members.

As a reminder, per National H.O.G. and the National Chapter Handbook on page 4, under Local Chapter Membership it states in the last line of the paragraph, “An expired National membership automatically terminates local chapter membership and any associated memberships.”  Please pay attention to your renewal notice when you receive it from National H.O.G. and don’t get caught with your chaps down!

Step #3

Complete the New Member Profile Form and send it along with your Membership Form or bring both to the next General Membership Meeting.

Step #4

Make your check out to: Santa Maria HOG #1403 and send your completed form with your check to:

James Collentine
SMHOG Membership Officer
3044 Cortuna Drive
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

We also have a Chapter Participation Award that is based off Chapter sponsored rides and events.  This award was started in 2012.  At the end of the year the Top 10 members that have garnered the most points will get a Patch and Year bar or a Year bar if they have placed before.  So I encourage you to get out there and ride and come to our Monthly General Membership Meetings.

Alcohol / Drug Policy: H.O.G. rides are alcohol as well as prescription (those that could impair one’s abilities), recreational, or illegal drug free. The Ride Leader / Road Captain will designate the destination / termination point of the ride at which point riders are free to make their own personal choice on the consumption of alcohol, prescription, recreational, or illegal drugs but will be asked NOT to ride back with other riders who have not made the choice of consuming alcohol or taking drugs. This includes a passenger.  This is for the safety of those riders who do not consume alcohol or take prescription / illegal drugs. The Chapter cannot pay for liability insurance for each ride so it will not be tolerated. Additionally, it will not be tolerated by our sponsoring Harley-Davidson dealer, or Harley-Davidson.  This policy applies to both riders and passengers.

Inappropriate Language and Behavior:  Some people use profanity and dirty words freely. Some people use foul language when their emotions run high. Other people think they are just being funny.  However, there is no excuse for obscene or sexual language, ethical jokes or slurs, or personal attacks using foul language. This includes not only the spoken word but also any photos and written material.  Chapter members should not be forced to endure dirty words or sexual talk that makes them uncomfortable.  Inappropriate patches shall not be worn or displayed on a members clothing at any time as a Chapter member.  There is no place for this type of language or behavior, and it will not be tolerated in the Santa Maria Harley Owners Group and could be grounds for termination of membership with the Chapter. If the Chapter Manager determines that a member’s conduct is undesirable or contrary to the sponsoring Dealer’s standards or vision the membership may be revoked per National H.O.G. Chapter Charter guidance.  This applies to both rider and passenger.
