MAG seeks Directors and Trustees


Selina Lavender, Chair, stated “MAG currently has a number of vacancies for Directors and Trustees and we would welcome Manifestoes from anyone who feels that they can bring something to the table. We are seeking Directors for both The Motorcycle Action Group Ltd and MAG Media. If you feel you have an appropriate skill-set for either of these and the time to give to it, we would welcome your Manifesto. We also have vacancies for Trustees of the MAG Foundation.” Manifestoes must have a Proposer and Seconder (full name and MAG membership number must be included) and must be submitted no later than Friday 30th June. In the event that the number of Manifestoes received is greater than the number of posts available a vote will be taken at the Conference. To submit your Manifesto, email it to nominations@mag-uk.org or post to Unit C13 Holly Farm Business Park, Honiley, Warwickshire CV8 1NP.

All other proposals to Conference or Agenda items should be emailed to nominations@mag-uk.org or posted to the address above. Selina added “our Annual Group Conference is not just where we deal with our legal obligations; it is a time when members new and longstanding come together to discuss what MAG is achieving and to help plan the way forward. Plus we have some downtime in the evening to catch up with friends and colleagues following the business in the day. We look forward to welcoming our members to this important event in MAG’s calendar.” Contact MAG at 01926 844 064 or central-office@mag-uk.org

The MAG stand will also be there so pop along and say hello if you are a member, or why not take the opportunity to become a member? MAG is still fighting hard for Riders Rights just as hard as ever, in fact even more so, so come along sign up and join the fight! See ya there!

Calne Bike Meet


The MAG stand was present at the annual Calne Bike meet, which takes over the town of Calne. It seemed quitter this year, but the weather forecast wasn’t to good and that may have put folk off.
