INVITATION TO AMA CHARTERED CLUBS TO BE A PART OF AN AMA RIDER DEVELOPMENT SERIES

The question has been asked of the Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA), 'when will it organise a motocross series?'.

It just so happens that the AMA has been made an offer by a supporter for sponsorship, awards, etc to be granted to local AMA chartered clubs that come together and organise a tri series of events in their region for 2021.

The offer applies not just to motocross, but to trials, enduro, vintage, supermoto, mini, road and any other motorcycle discipline, anywhere in Australia.

The offer is conditional that the focus of the events is about rider development, ie. the events are not to be about racing but rather be about helping young riders, the new and inexperienced to get involved, gain knowledge and improve their riding skills.

Yes the events are to be timed as awards are to be granted to the most improved riders after each event and of course at the end of the series.

The plan is to also have one of the many AMA chartered rider coaches onsite at each event to help riders be better at riding.

To get started, simply open a line of communication with your neighbouring clubs and ask them if they would like to be apart of such a series. 

If you and your neighbouring cubs can come to an agreement on dates, locations, etc then email us with the details to  and we'll make it happen together.

NATIONAL DISCIPLINE COORDINATORS REQUIRED TO CHAMPION THE AMA MOTORCYCLE SPORT  DIVISIONS

 

Growth across the motorcycle sport divisions of the Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA), means the AMA needs national discipline coordinators to help steer each of the motorcycle sport divisions - trials, motocross, off road, dirt track and tar track.

The role of a national discipline coordinator is to:

  • work with local AMA clubs and branches and help with the coordination of calendar dates for local, regional, state and national activities and the promotion of those activities;
  • work with local AMA clubs and branches and help them attract partners, sponsors and advertisers to support the clubs in their efforts to organise local, regional, state and national activities; and
  • work with local AMA clubs and branches across the country to help get more people involved in grassroots motorcycling.

Ideally a national discipline coordinator will already be working within the Australian motorcycle industry, ie. with a manufacturer, importer, dealer, accessory or associated retail business and will have the flexibility to perform some of the role during those normal working hours.

In return for providing such support to the AMA and the national discipline coordinator, the businesses will have the opportunity to have individual events and event series (local, regional, state and national) named after them, to be recognised as major supporter of the AMA division and the events and to participate in other areas for which the national discipline coordinator was responsible for.

The purpose of this initiative is to get the Australian motorcycle industry more involved in grassroots events, to provide more opportunities for young people, new and exisiting riders to get involved and to help grow motorcycling across the nation.

To register your interest in becoming an AMA National Discipline Coordinator please email .

A NEW ERA FOR AUSTRALIAN MOTORCYCLE CLUBS IS NOW HERE

 

The Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA) team has been working closely with its not for profit specialist law firm to produce a unique legal structure for local AMA branches which we think will greatly benefit clubs, industry, riders and local communities for many years to come.

Unlike a traditional motorcycle club which stands alone with its own rules, policies, procedures and is left to fend for itself, an AMA branch is a child association of the AMA, which means it’s not just a part of the AMA family, it is the AMA family.

To liken an AMA branch to another organisation think a local Lions Club to Lions Australia or a local Surf Life Saving Club to Surf Life Saving Australia, as is with a local AMA Branch to AMA National, eg. Australian Motorcyclist Association Bendigo Branch (AMA Bendigo).

The AMA’s insurer describes an AMA branch as a subsidiary company/ child association of the AMA, which means it has the same purpose as the AMA and is automatically named as an insured on all of the AMA insurance policies, ie. an AMA branch receives FREE insurance!!

And unlike traditional clubs which have members that can vote out effective committees and replace them with others that have self-serving interests, an AMA branch does not have those members. An AMA branch has a board as nominated by AMA national so a committee will always be effective and be able to just get on with the job of running the club.

Being a national organisation means all members join at the national level and an entitlement of this national membership is to participate in the activities of an AMA branch, anywhere in Australia. And unlike traditional incorporated clubs which can only operate within their home state, an AMA branch can operate anywhere in Australia.

AMA branches can work side by side in the organization and operation of local, regional, state and national events and share equally in the results of those events. Partnering with other AMA branches and creating a series of events can help return motorcycling in Australia to its heyday.  

Even existing clubs can form a new AMA branch, wind up their existing club, transfer assets to the AMA branch and then register an ASIC trading name to the new AMA branch in the name of the old club. This way motorcycle clubs across Australia can reap the benefits of an AMA branch and still retain their existing identity.  

So if you want to get more people involved in motorcycling, do it affordably and actually make money so you can build infrastructure to accommodate these people and do it in a way that is more effective than you have ever experienced as a motorcycle club in Australia, then come join us as an AMA branch.

PEOPLE WITH A PASSION FOR MOTORCYCLING NEEDED FOR THE BOARDS OF THE AMA STATE AND TERRITORY BRANCHES

The Australian Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is moving into its next stage of development with the registration of the AMA State and Territory Branches.

A total of 5 x AMA members is needed to make up the Board in each of the AMA State and Territory Branches.

The AMA State and Territory Branches are not governing bodies, but rather entities that provide a system of support to both the national and local AMA clubs.

The role of the Board and the functions of an AMA State and Territory Branches are to:

Attract state/ territory funding and represent the AMA at the state/ territory level;

Help local AMA clubs with the coordination of calendar dates for local, regional, state and national activities and the promotion of those activities;

Help local AMA clubs attract partners, sponsors and advertisers to support the local AMA clubs in their efforts to organise local, regional, state and national activities; 

Promote and encourage motorcyclists within local council areas to volunteer as AMA regional chapter coordinators and become the eyes and ears of motorcycling for that area;  

Communicate with regional chapter coordinators to determine what local issues need to be addressed by the AMA advocacy centre;

Work with our lobbying partner Tread Outdoors and communicate all local issues relating to motorcyclist rights, access issues, unfair laws, etc to have those issues addressed;

Promote and encourage AMA members to become volunteer competition commissioners, which work to better amateur competition events sanctioned by the AMA;

Work with competition commissioners to consider, disseminate, amend, interpret and assist in the enforcement of both technical and operational rules for AMA amateur competition events; 

To become a member of an AMA State or Territory Branch, the person must not have affiliation with any other state, territory or national organization and must be a person of good standing in the Australian motorcycling community.

Please note: If you are a person that is not in good standing or you are a representative of another organisation trying to get in a position not becoming of the role, you need not register your interest. 

Only people that are motorcyclists themselves, are passionate about motorcycling and want to see the direction of motorcycling in this country take a different and much improved course, should register.

Candidates for the Board of an AMA State or Territory Branch must reside anywhere within the state or territory for which they intend to represent. 

Board meetings are online only, so board members must be computer literate and of course have internet access and internet camera.

If you are one of those people that lives and breathes motorcycles and motorcycling and or are someone that has brought the sport of motorcycling into disrepute because of your passion, the AMA needs you!

Please register your interest in becoming an AMA State or Territory Branch Board Member by emailing your name, contact details, motorcycling history/ experience, and the names and contact details of 2 x other persons which can vouch for your good standing to
