PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA)
and AMA Pro Racing have announced that Bill Werner, member of the
Motorcycle Hall of Fame and legendary Harley-Davidson tuner, will serve
on the AMA Racing Committee, one of two standing committees of the AMA
Board of Directors.
The AMA Racing Committee manages strategic planning and direction within its area of the AMA's mission, with the goal of responding to the interests of the AMA's 270,000 members. The other members of the Racing Committee are Carl Reynolds (chair), Art More, Jeff Nash, and John Ulrich.
"We're pleased that Bill Werner has agreed to serve on this important Board committee," said Reynolds. "His wealth of racing and business experience will be invaluable as we strive to make the AMA's professional competition even better."
"When I heard in February that the AMA had created the Racing Committee, I felt that it could be a step in the right direction," said Werner. "Now I'm glad to have the opportunity to contribute, along with the other members of the committee and the AMA Board of Directors, to shaping the future of the world's best racing."
The AMA Board of Directors, which meets four times a year, consists of 12 members. Six individual Directors are elected by the general membership in their respective regions and serve three-year terms. Six corporate Directors are elected by the corporate membership and serve two-year terms.
