Have a passion for mountain biking and want to be a part of WAMBA's new future? 

Nominations for the 2015/ 2016 WAMBA Committee are now being called. As per WAMBA’s Constitution, all current committee members cease to be committee members at the AGM and are eligible for re-election.

Assuming the Notice of Motion is passed at the AGM, an interim committee is being appointed until such time as WAMBA can change its constitution to allow for a new governance structure to be established. This change of constitution will take approx. 4-6 months. However, to allow for a successful transition from governance by a committee to WAMBA being governed by a Board and CEO, input from committee members will be required for a period after the change of constitution. Committee members will be eligible for election to the new WAMBA Board.

Positions available for election in the 2015/ 2016 Interim Committee are:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Club Engagement and Community Relations Coordinator

  • Management Council for Sport Development Chairperson

  • Long term organisational financial sustainability

  • Agreements with main stakeholders
  • Trail development projects
  • Sport development (including junior development, high performance and state level events)

All roles will be well supported by the WAMBA committee itself, as well as the many shared services available through Westcycle.

Alternatively, you can elect to provide support for any of the other official positions.

There is also the potential for other sub-committees to be formed by interested members - provided they align with WAMBA strategic objectives within the key result areas of Leadership, Governance and Management; Participation; Trails, Facilities and Infrastructure; Capacity Building.
