2016 Annual General Meeting

This year's Annual General Meeting will be held during the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in Linville, North Carolina on Saturday, July 9 at 2:00 PM. The agenda will be released by the Executive Committee at a later date, as will the overall schedule for the weekend.

Message from the President: Members in attendance at our Annual General Meeting will be voting on a proposed name change for our corporation. After much discussion and consultation with the Chief and other branch presidents, the Executive Committee is proposing that our name be changed to Clan MacLean Association in the United States. This reflects our status as the oldest and largest of the three Clan MacLean organizations in the USA, and would also alleviate the confusion of just who (and what) Clan Gillean is. Please take careful note that the title is IN the United States, not OF the United States. This is out of respect for the Pacific Northwest and California Branches, who represent the Clan along the West Coast. We began this process at the 2015 AGM in Estes Park, Colorado, with lots of input from the members present. If you have thoughts or concerns about the proposed name change, please contact me at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
