The NAM Committee

The following band of merry men and women are the NAM committee. These people give up their free time to help maintain and further develop the group.

Without these people and the time they invest, the club would not survive.

Their sole aim is to ensure the club continues to run and meet its objectives. They are selected by the membership to serve all members of the group, so it is both the right and responsibility of each member to ensure any issues, queries, concerns etc are brought to the attention of the committee as soon as possible.

The following is a list of positions and their current occupants together with a brief description of the role.

Rideout Coordinator: David Murphy

David Murphy

Email: rideout@nam-online.org

David is our rideout coordinator this means he organises our monthly rideouts aiming to have new and interesting rides every month. Of course, this is a no win task, as what one group of people find interesting and challenging, another group will either feel it was too challenging, too long, boring, too short etc. etc. This is compounded by the difficulty involved in coordinating what can be in excess of 30 bikes, trying to get everyone off at a given time and not lose anyone before returning home etc.

Don't forget, if you have a favourite route, why not invite the group and turn it into a rideout? Contact David who will be more than willing to help you with any planning and organization.
