Our Mission

Mesquite AMBUCS' mission is to enhance the lives of adults, children with special needs and disabled veterans by improving their mobility through therapeutic tricycles known as Amtrykes and building barrier-free ramps.  Mesquite AMBUCS also provides scholarships to PT/OT students and performs other acts of community service.

National & Regional Conferences

The current national AMBUCS president is Scott Buckelew. There is a national in-person or virtual conference held every fall. A regional conference is also held every spring that is led by the regional director, currently Dave Hallberg.

One must first be a chapter leader to become a regional director. Regional directors can then be elected as the national president.
