Black Girls Ride Magazine will host our first ever panels inside the 2017 PROC! We’re honored and excited to curate two panels this year! The MC Professional Convention AKA The PROC had its start in Philadelphia, PA in January 2004. It began as a “Get-Together” for Public Relations Officers AKA P.R.O.’s” from urban motorcycle clubs, predominantly in the North Eastern portion on the country, to speak on current affairs within the MC Community and fellowship. its inception, “The PROC” has spawned from a small gathering of 100 or so bikers in a small bar in Philadelphia, PA for a one-day event into a three-day weekend encompassing education, safety, maintenance clinics, guest speakers and club officer breakout sessions. There is also a meet and Greet night and a after party to unwind from the rigorous schedule of daytime education and activities. If you’re not registered, they’ll have a limited amount of on site registration, so get there early!
