#03NR40 - MRF Announces Board of Directors Changes

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is pleased to announce the following changes to its Board of Directors. Several of these changes were approved and announced at the MRF's Meeting of the Minds in Green Bay this past September. Two other changes occurred this week.

Vice President: Kirk "Hardtail" Willard, Wisconsin
Secretary: Deb Butitta, Arizona
Treasurer: Chuc Coulter, Idaho
Director of Product and Procurement: Lynn Oldenburg, Maryland
Director of State Representatives: Tim Nelson, Iowa
State Representative to the Board: Miles France, Colorado
Supporting SMRO Representative: Dave Dwyer, Wisconsin
Supporting SMRO Representative: Steve Zimmer, Ohio

The MRF Board of Directors would like to offer its sincere gratitude to Dave and Noriene Mann, who retired from the Board at the Meeting of the Minds after 20 years of dedication to the motorcyclists' rights movement. In addition, we would like to thank Chris Maurich for agreeing to continue serving as an Ex-Officio Member of the MRF Board.

We would also like to thank Wayne Thomas and Paul Cote' for their continued dedication to motorcyclists' rights and the MRF. Wayne made the difficult decision to step down due to his employment travel responsibilities. Paul announced his decision to step down due to his increased SMRO and PAC responsibilities in Massachusetts.

Please join us in welcoming the new members of the MRF Board of Directors, as well as extending our sincere thanks and best wishes to our former board members for their years of service. We invite you to visit the updated "Officers/Directors" section of the MRF website at www.mrf.org/directors.php for contact information and to learn more about the exceptional team of leaders representing you as your MRF Board of Directors.
