To be protected for leading the Adventure Rider Wauchope/Port Macquarie FB Group’s adventure rides, Mick Debreceny signed up to officiate as an Australian Motorcyclist Association Inc (AMA) approved ADV RIDER LEADER. What this means for Mick is that he is insured with the AMA’s EVENT INSURANCE for any adventure ride he leads, which protects him as an individual, his family and their personal assets and places any and all liability with the AMA.
To have an Adventure Rider Wauchope/Port Macquarie FB Group event sanctioned (insured) by the AMA, all Mick has to do is load the event details, as usual into the groups event page and send an email to the AMA requesting the event to be sanctioned. The AMA will then import the event into the AMA Advrider.asn.au FB page, which officially sanctions and insures the event as an event of the AMA.
Plus, group members would have also seen by now, the ‘Group by Advrider.asn.au’ tag in the main group photo and I wanted to share with members what that means for the group and in particular for Mick Debreceny. As you all may know, Mick is the owner, administrator and moderator of this group, which means he is the principal ‘editor’ of this media publishing outlet. As the publisher, Mick could have been dragged into or made responsible for a defamation case, if a group member intentionally spreads information about another member that damages their reputation, or can make others think less of them.
An Australian example of a successful social media defamation case costing an individual $100,000 is here.
But seeing as Mick REGISTERED THE GROUP with the AMA, which means any and all liability is placed with the AMA, an insured and incorporated entity that is protected by law and not Mick, an uninsured individual, acting in good faith that all group members will be kind and respectful to each other, whom was personally liable for what was said on the group’s site.
Making the Adventure Rider Wauchope/Port Macquarie FB Group a group of the AMA is not to make the AMA famous, all powerful or whatever else you might think such an organisation might do. The AMA was made to protect individuals like Mick that live to ride and are kind enough to share and lead others into their most favourite of riding places.
As a benefit of signing up the group with the AMA, all group members are offered FREE AMA SOCIAL ADV RIDER Membership when they use the coupon code WPMADVRIDER on checkout. Signing up with the AMA means you only have to indemnify Mick and and all support volunteers just the once, plus you have the ability to upgrade your membership to PLUS ADV RIDER Membership for just $30 per year, which covers you with personal accident insurance during any AMA ADV Rider sanctioned event you attend, anywhere in Australia.
Plus any group member helping out Mick, should sign up for FREE to officiate as an AMA ADV RIDER VOLUNTEER to also be covered with the AMA’s Event Insurance and voluntary workers personal accident insurance. Any member helping Mick to organise the group’s events should sign up to officiate as an AMA ADV RIDE ORANISER, which includes additional levels of protector liability insurance.
