Welcome to the Blue Knights® Great Lakes Regional Conference, that has been up and running since 1998! Here you will learn more about 'what' we do and 'who' we do it with. Our Regional Conference joins 6 American States and 1 Canadian Province together to represent one of the largest geographical areas in the world. We virtually surround the Great Lakes!
The Blue Knights® International LEMC is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of 20,400+ active and retired law enforcement officers from around the world who enjoy riding motorcycles. In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine (USA) area met and formed a small, local motorcycle club. Our club has since become an International Organization.
We bring you information specifically related to our conference. If you wish to see information about another conference / chapter use the Chapters Menu at the top of each page. If you are planning on riding or visiting within the Great Lakes Conference area, have a look at our Rides/Events web page for chapter and conference flyers.
We accept flyers up to 30 days in advance of these events.

Reporting the Death of a Member
We have been watching the public Blue Knights® International Facebook web page and noticed a lot of our members seem to think this is the official reporting mechanism back to International H.Q. which it is NOT folks. If a member of your chapter passes to Heaven I, please contact our Administrative Assistants at H.Q. and notify the current GLRC Chairman. International has a Heaven I on line form to make the notification as well.
