Your Massachusetts Motorcycle Association would like to invite all members in good standing to the MMA's Annual Meeting to be held on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 265 Lakeside Ave (Route 20), Marlboro, MA, beginning at 9 AM. The purpose of the Annual Meeting is to discuss the business of your MMA and elect members to board positions that are either vacant or for which the incumbent’s term is expiring. The Annual Meeting will be followed by a break for lunch, and then the MMA’s biennial Legislative Session, at which we will discuss your MMA Legislative Agenda for the next Massachusetts General Court.
MMA Board positions open this year include Business Manager, Membership Services Director, District II Manager, District III Manager, and District IV Manager; each of these positions is a 3-year term of office. The position of MMA Vice Chairman will also be reelected since it runs concurrent with the sitting board position for the member that holds that position. Also open for election is the MRF State Representative, which is an annually elected position.
The positions listed are all elected by the current sitting board members, but are open to any interested member. The eligibility requirements for these positions require that you are a current member in good standing with the MMA, and that you have been a member in good standing for at least one year. The District Manager positions have a further requirement of residing within the respective district in which you would be the manager.
Anyone interested in any of these positions can request more information, or submit a short note of your intention to run and a brief resume to Doc D’Errico, Elections Committee Chairman, no later than Midnight October 4, 2016, via e-mail to ViceChair@MassMotorcycle.org. Also, you MUST be present at the October meeting to accept the nomination, give a brief statement as to why you are seeking this position, and to answer any questions members may have.
Please note that each District will be conducting a meeting in their respective districts during the month of October. The purpose of these meetings will be to elect a District Representative for each district. Elected by the attending District Membership, District Representatives fill a one year seat on the Board-of-Directors to act as the membership’s voice on the Board, and to bring Board activities back to the membership. The eligibility is the same as for the District Managers as stated above. Anyone interested in a District Representative Position should contact their District Manager, or Doc D’Errico, Vice Chairman.
