A Branch Director is a volunteer which sits on the Board of an AMA State, Territory or Regional Branch. AMA State, Territory and Regional Branches are not governing bodies, but rather entities that provide a system of support to the AMA at the national, regional and local levels. The role of the Board and the functions of an AMA State, Territory and Regional Branches are to:
Attract state/ territory/ regional funding and represent the AMA at the state/ territory/ regional level;
Help local AMA subsidiary clubs with the coordination of calendar dates for local, regional, state and national activities and the promotion of those activities;
Help local AMA subsidiary clubs attract partners, sponsors and advertisers to support the local AMA lubs in their efforts to organise local, regional, state and national activities;
Promote and encourage recreational vehicle and motor vehicle users within local council areas to volunteer as AMA regional chapter coordinators and become the eyes and ears of users 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 recreational vehicle and motor vehicle users rights, access issues, unfair laws, etc to have those issues addressed;
Promote and encourage AMA Clubs members to become volunteer sport and recreation commissioners, which work to promote recreation events and better amateur competition events sanctioned by the AMA;
Work with sport 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 director of an AMA State, Territory or Regional 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 recreational vehicle and motor vehicle 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 recreational vehicle and motor vehicle users themselves, are passionate about amping, driving, riding and racing and want to see recreational vehicle and motor vehicle use in this country, take a different and much improved course, should register.
Candidates for the Board of an AMA State, Territory or Regional Branch must reside anywhere within the state, territory or region 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 recreational vehicles and motor vehicles, the AMA needs you!
