Working with AMA members to serve riders in their states
The AMA State Chapter program provides a way for people to come together locally for riding, recreation and advocacy.
Each AMA member belongs to a state chapter. There are no additional forms to fill out or fees to pay. Just contact your state coordinator (or become one) and get involved.
The three keys to the AMA State Chapter program are advocacy, altruism and activities.
Each chapter has (or soon will have) a volunteer state coordinator, who works with AMA clubs and individuals to determine what their goals and interests are. Then, the coordinator will work with the members to determine the best way their interests can be served by the AMA. State coordinators must make the AMA presence known and felt.
All those who wish to become state coordinators must complete AMA EAGLES training.
The state coordinators will be asking which advocacy messages are needed, which charity events are supported and how far members are willing to travel to participate in events.
The AMA wants to help efforts that are already underway and get new ideas off the ground. The AMA can help clubs by sanctioning events, arranging insurance and assisting with publicity and communications.
But the help will flow in the other direction, too.
When the AMA needs people at meetings, writing letters and making phone calls about important local issues, AMA staff members will turn to the state chapters first. Local voices carry more weight with elected and appointed officials.
In addition, when rallies and other recreational events are scheduled, the AMA will need volunteers at its tent or booth to help kindle interest in the AMA, answer questions about the AMA and its activities and promote membership.
