The National Ambucs Organization
The National Ambucs Organization was formed on May 18, 1922, in Birmingham, Alabama. With 4,952 members in 158 chapters in 33 states, we work witha motto of “shoulders together.”
We have awarded $9 million by way of scholarships to nearly 15,000 students. Our Amtryke program started in the year 1995 and has given away over 30,000 Amtrykes.
Mesquite Ambucs’s mission is to enhance the lives of adults, children with special needs and disabled veterans by creating mobility through therapeutic bikes, known as AmTrykes and building ramps.
National & Regional Conferences
The national president is Vic Mendez. There’s a national conference which is held every fall. The next conference is scheduled to be held from September 30 to October 03. A regional conference is also held every spring that is led by the regional director, Billy Hagenbucher, in Grapevine on March 27 and 28.
One must be a chapter leader to be a regional leader and then move on to become the national leader.
