4. Regularly scheduled board meetings are conducted through a teleconference mode to conduct meetings.
5. Scholarship opportunities for members and their families are offered.
6. A commissioners manual to provide direction and give definition to the role of commissioner is available.
7. A viable website with links to facebook and genealogy sites are provided.
8. We also offer Pay Pal as a means of payment for membership in the
Clan MacKinnon Society. You can find the membership form and the
Pay Pal service on the members only page.
We currently hold our General Meetings every two years. In 2014 it will be held in Stone Mt. Georgia at the highland games.
If you are not a member, please consider joining us. Its a lot of fun.
If you have ever attended a highland games and visited the clan tent area and see the MacKinnon banner flying high......it speaks for itself.
The Society will assist you in your endeavour should you want to have a clan tent. The various highland games throughout the U.S. and the international community is the main venue used to reach out and share our MacKinnon culture and history as well. There are many more games that do not have the MacKinnon Clan represented and we hope to change that. YOU could be the one to provide that representation.
Please visit our directory of officers page for contact information.
Please visit our News and Events page for information regarding our first publication by Clan MacKinnon Society Publishing. Details and purchase information are available there. We are really excited about this.
John McKinnon- Chairman of the board- Clan MacKinnon Society
THE MACKINNONS ARE HEADING TO STONE MT. GEORGIA 2014The objective of the Clan MacKinnon Society is to foster a sense of clan unity and a better understanding of the past, present and future of MacKinnon life. With respect to time and circumstance and the encouragement of education, we seek to collect and preserve the records, artifacts and traditions bearing on the history of the Clan. We support and encourage Celtic Literature and Highland Arts, and what remains of our Pict and Gael origins.
We wish to be a place where you can come for all you Scottish inclinations, a place where you can find all a great deal of content, resources and also leave your own footprint, communicating and sharing in the sheer brilliance of being Scottish and being a MacKinnon.
