About the MMA Platinum
The primary objectives of the MMA Platinum are:
- The recruitment of new Moths into the Order regardless of whether they qualify for MMA membership or not. This is the prime function and should be held in high priority in all endeavours.
- Secondly, fund raising activities in line with the specific requirements of clause 2.3 of the MOTH Constitution.
Whilst the Order is a voluntary organization, more so the MMA is an association of Moths and Friends with a common interest in the biker Brotherhood. It is this common interest which binds the group and motivates the interaction between members through social and benevolent events.
The MMA Platinum is subservient to the MOTH and its policies are democratically determined at Provincial general meetings, representing the interests of all its members. Regular meetings are held by MMA members in their Districts or Chapters. Whilst fund-raising constitutes a major portion of the time, recruitment for the Order remains the prime function.
Is the MMA for me? If you are interested in joining our exclusive organisation, ask not what it can do for you but what you can do for the MMA and the MOTH. You will need to demonstrate brotherhood and not material achievements to obtain acceptance in your Chapter.
