London however was the location of the first International Secretariat as a result of the initial ideas and efforts of James Huntley and Walter E. Lessing, the latter defining in 1970 the term “mid” as follows:
"Mid-Atlantic Clubs have no preconceived ideological focus, but are devoted simply to a free exchange of serious points of view about the transatlantic connection. The adjective "Mid-Atlantic" refers to some mythical spot in the center of the Atlantic Ocean where certain vital interests of Europeans and North Americans may be presumed to meet and merge".
All Mid-Atlantic Clubs are autonomous but over the years, an international secretariat helped to coordinate activities. Currently, MAC Bonn is the primary facilitator of communication between the various clubs.
