BURLESON & ULRICH, SMILIE & SMITH RE-ELECTED TO AMA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

2007-02-27 04:44
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has
announced that Jon-Erik Burleson of KTM Sportmotorcycle USA and John
Ulrich of Roadracing World Publishing have been re-elected to serve as
corporate members of the AMA Board of Directors.

Burleson and Ulrich were re-elected during the annual corporate members
meeting, held on Saturday, February 17, in Indianapolis. The corporate
membership did not enter a nomination to fill a vacant corporate-member
seat on the AMA Board of Directors, agreeing to the Board's
recommendation that this seat, along with a vacant individual-member
seat, not be filled, to allow for potential changes in the makeup of the
Board.

In related news, Dal Smilie, who represents the Northwest Region, and
Jeff Smith, who represents the North Central Region, recently were
re-elected to the Board by the individual members in their regions. The
Northeast Region's seat on the Board is vacant, because no candidate in
that region received the required number of nominations prior to the
election.

The AMA Board of Directors, which met in Indianapolis February 16 and
17, also re-elected its current slate of officers: Dal Smilie, Chairman;
Stan Simpson, Vice Chairman; Croft Long, Assistant Secretary; Jeff
Smith, Assistant Treasurer; and Ken Sutton, Member, Executive Committee.

The AMA Board of Directors currently consists of 12 seats: six
individual Directors elected by the general membership in their
respective regions and serving three-year terms; and six corporate
Directors elected by the corporate membership and serving two-year
terms. The AMA Board of Directors meets four times a year.
