Fellow Florida motorcyclist Tom Beatty seeks nomination to the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Board of Directors. Florida Biker Network (FBN) interviewed him at his home in Florida.
If you are an AMA member Tom needs your signature on his nomination form to get on the election ballot. See the article for information on how to accomplish this.
Melbourne, FL (July 17, 2011) – Florida motorcyclist Tom Beatty is seeking nomination to the Board of Directors of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). Tom has been active in the local motorcyclist scene for many years. He has been a member of the AMA for 36 years and is a Charter Life Member. He became a Field Rep approximately 12 years ago. A Field Rep is a volunteer position that assists the AMA and other groups affilitated with the AMA at their events.
He has supported the AMA in their endeavors over the years assisting at major events such as Daytona Bike Week, Daytona Biketoberfest and AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. He has supported them locally by participating with other groups at their events by having an AMA table or canopy signing new members and educating fellow motorcyclists on the benefits and necessity of a national motorcyclist organization such as the AMA. He has worked at racing events with the American Historical Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) and Grand National Cross Country Racing (GNCC) supporting them and assisting at their Florida events.
FBN: Why are you seeking a nomination to the AMA Board of Directors?
Tom: I would like to see the organization grow. I have been a member of the AMA for 36 years. During those years the membership of the AMA has fluctuated around the 300,000 mark. I believe that to be more effective in it’s mission it needs to grow the membership.
I have been in other organizations that grew their membership and believe I have some ideas that would work and grow the AMA membership. If you look at the motorcycle registration numbers in the USA I see no reason that the AMA shouldn’t have a membership of over one million members. I see the possibility of it being much higher than that.
