What an action packed day!

Before the thrills and spills of slopestyle yesterday, WAMBA redefined its role and elected a new committee for 2015/ 2016 during its annual general meeting.

In line with a new strategic direction, WAMBA is now recognised as the state representative body for the West Australian mountain biking community. This change of role, from simply being a trail advocacy group to the state representative body, will provide a more strategic direction for the Association and allow it to remain relevant to members, stakeholders and the WA mountain biking community.

Passion, hard work (lots of it!) and commitment to this new strategic role has led to the re-election of Louise Wallace as WAMBA President. Also re-elected were Marilena Stimpfl (Vice President), Jodie Stembridge (Secretary), and Alex Wade and Margaret McIlroy (general committee).

New faces on the committee include Mike Young (Government Engagement Coordinator), Ben Pruden (Chairperson - Management Council for Trails Access), Tony Tucknott (Chairperson – Management Council for Racing, Graeme Adams (Junior Development Coordinator), and Amy Chapple (general committee).

Welcome to everyone – it’s going to be an exciting year ahead!
