How to Join

The VFWR Sky Islands Chapter is always looking for veterans and family members to become part of the family. The first and easiest step in the process to become a member of our chapter is to email us at skyislands@azvfwriders.com and meet with the Chapter Director or Assistant Director.

Once you meet with the Director or Assistant Director, they will invite you to attend our rides, events, and meetings as a Guest. During the time that you ride with us as a guest, we will encourage you to consider what joining our organization means to you and whether our chapter is the right fit for you and your family.

Once you complete the minimum amount of rides and meetings, we will let you know that you are eligible for membership in our chapter. At this point, if you decide to join our chapter, your membership status will be brought up for a vote at our membership meeting, and once voted in you will be eligible to purchase and wear our chapter insignia.
