The AMA issued a February 20 press release, as follows:
“Two longtime corporate members of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Board of Trustees were re-elected, and a new member was added, at the Association’s annual corporate membership meeting, held February 17 in Indianapolis.
“Six of the 12 seats on the AMA Board are from the Association’s corporate membership. They serve two-year terms and are elected by the corporate members themselves.
“With three seats up for renewal, the corporate members re-elected Ray Blank, American Honda’s Vice President for Sales and Operations, and Mel Harris, Vice President of American Suzuki’s motorcycle division, to the seats they have held since 1989 and 1995, respectively. Also added to the Board was Davey Coombs, President of Filter Publications, who was elected to fill the seat vacated by Lamar Williams, President of the American Motorcycle Institute, who steps down after 10 years of service to the Board.
“The next Board meeting is set for March 4-5 in Daytona.”
