Clan MacKinnon Society headquartered in the U.S.A. is the only active branch of Clan MacKinnon. We have members in 4 provinces of Canada, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Belgium, United Kingdom, Scotland and over 23 states in the U.S.. The Clan Chief Madame Anne MacKinnon of MacKinnon has appointed Stephen MacKinnon as her representative to the Clan MacKinnon .
We currently hold our General Meetings every two years. Our next General Meeting will be in 2016 in CHICAGO, ILLINOIS the 17th and 18th of June. Visit us in the Clan tent area and look for the MacKinnon banner. Please start planning now to attend. www.chicagoscots.org
If you are not a member, please consider joining us. It's 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 endeavor 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.
Also on our News and Events page is a list of Highland Games and festivals 2016 where we plan on hosting a Clan MacKinnon tent. Please check it out and come visit us. Interested in becoming a commissioner?
We provide a commissioner manual, tent manual and a banner if you host a tent at a highland games event.

We wish to be a place where you can come for all your Scottish inclinations, a place where you all can find 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.
