MAG elects new Chair

The Motorcycle Action Group Limited (MAG) held its 2015 Annual Group Conference (AGC) on Saturday 11th April 2015.

The event was hosted in Bridgwater by the South West Region of the group. The 350 capacity hall was filled by members who listened to the reports of the last 12 months.

Lembit Öpik (Director of Communication and Public Affairs) and Dr Leon Mannings (Transport Policy Advisor) opened the proceedings with very positive news regarding the significant increase in political activity including the engagement of a great number of political representatives which is hugely important as the Country approaches the General Election.

There were two candidates for the chairman’s role that is elected annually. The new chair is Selina Lavender, the previous Vice Chair.

Selina said of her appointment: “I thank John Mitchell, the former chairman, for the work he has done over the past two years that has put MAG in the strong position it is today at the forefront of riders rights. His is a hard act to follow and I will give this role my all to keep the momentum going. In order to do this all the members need to get involved. MAG is very much a member-led organisation. It is built on volunteers who are greatly valued. My job is to represent their views and work with them to grow the organisation. I am honoured that the members have put their faith in me.”
