Default Important MAG stuff!

ANNUAL GROUP CONFERENCE - URGENT UPDATE: 20 MARCH 2009

Some significant developments in the business of this years AGC prompts me to send you this e-mail in an attempt to ensure as many MAG members as possible are aware of the facts.

1. Election of the National Chairman of MAG (UK)

After three terms in office as MAG's National Chairman, Jane Chisholm has just announced that she will not be able to continue after the AGC. This leaves one of the most important volunteer posts in MAG open to new
candidates (there being no candidate contesting the post prior to today).

Jane's message to the membership reads: "I'm really sorry to have to make this decision at this late stage, but I canít stand for the chair of MAG at AGC for the next year. This is due to the failing health of my parents, who cannot cope without more help following a recent stay in hospital. I had hoped that I might manage another year, but it is now apparent that family circumstances mean I would not be able to commit anything like the same time and energy to MAG this year."

MAG members of more than 12 months standing (prior to nomination) are eligible for election.

Nominations, signed by the Candidate, their proposer and seconder (who must be current MAG members), along with the Candidates' manifesto (no more than 1,200 words).

Nominations and manifestos must be received by Central office before midnight on Friday 27th March 2009. The address for Central Office is; MAG (UK), PO Box 750, Rugby, CV21 3ZR.

At this time, one nomination has been has been notified to Central: Paul Turner (Cumbria Regional Rep), proposed by Fergus O'Connell (National Vice Chairman and Clubs Liaison Officer), seconded by Greg Philipson (North East Regional Rep)

2. Late proposal for a national MAG campaign

"East Yorkshire MAG propose (after a unanimous vote) that MAG (UK) prepare and implement a national campaign, to protect the liberty and freedom of motorcyclists, travelling on the public highways from overzealous and discriminatory policing."

Proposed by Jol Lawson membership number 97448

Seconded by John Metcalfe membership number 117378
NB: Although received after the advertised submission date, this proposal has been brought forward at the discretion of the National Committee.

Details of the 2009 Annual Group Conference - Saturday 4th April 2009 at Hurworth Grange, Hurworth on Tees near Darlington, Co. Durham.**

All current MAG members are invited to attend, voting on production of a valid membership card. Proceedings start at 11:00am. Camping is available on Friday and Saturday at the venue. Bars open Friday night at venue. Saturday night party with two bands.

I'm sad to see Jane go and wish her and her parents well.

You mean to say that has not been the purpose of MAG all this time?

I think the new bit is from overzealous and discriminatory policing

before it was generally from silly new legislation rather than discriminatory / innapropriate application of existing legislation
