    • Treasurer is an Officer on the Board of Directors. This position requires knowledge and skills which include transaction processing using Paypal, RaceWurx and QuickBooks, balancing bank statements, preparation of P&L statements, interfacing with CPAs for yearly tax filing and issuance of 1099s. The Treasurer will also prepare annual budgets, process checks and credit cards for all payments, issue checks on race day, and reconcile race payments with entries. This is a non-racing position. The Treasurer position is a non-riding position as the duties associated carry through both race days.

Creates, compile and publish rules for competition in the form of a rule book; Provides for technical inspection of equipment being used by the riders and bar any equipment which does not conform to technical standards; and Serves as a referee in the enforcement of rules regulating equipment standards, class suitability, and all other matters specified in the rule book not otherwise delegated in the By-Laws.The VP of Rules and Tech positions can be held by riders or non-riders.

      • Make final determination whether riders are qualified to compete in an event
      • Approve or deny new license applications, rider advancements and revocation of advancements, racing credentials from other organizations and schools, and other duties specified in the rule book.


    The Rider Representative positions must be held by racers so that they may maintain the rider's perspective, teach and coach throughout the season. In addition to being a "voice" of the racing membership, there are 4 distinct "Rider Rep Positions" and specific responsibilities that come with each:


    • Rulebook - responsible for knowing rulebook inside and out, compiling new rule suggestions, coordinating and conducting rulebook committee meeting, and then presenting committee recommendations to the Board. Also requires making edits, corrections, etc... to rulebook as necessary, and then preparing rulebook text for the publishing company as per their guidelines. The majority of the work in this position occurs "off season".


    • Trophy and Class Sponsorship - responsible for contacting existing and prospective trophy sponsors to ensure classes are sponsored for race season. Must negotiate sponsorships, giving first right of refusal to returning class sponsors. Prepares and delivers invoices to trophy sponsors, and provides ongoing contact with trophy sponsors as necessary. Also responsible for contracting, ordering, and delivering trophies to MRA events and Award Ceremony. The workload for this position is fairly evenly spread throughout the calendar year.


    • Public Relations/Events - responsible for heading up and coordinating local/regional PR events with members and volunteers, and the construction, maintenance and distribution of E-Displays. Orders flyers, staff's events (bike nights, dealership open houses, etc...), posts on other club sites, communicates with Board regarding marketing expenditures, etc... This is NOT a one-man-band position. It requires someone who can coordinate and motivate members to attend various functions and keep tabs on ALL PR events to be sure the MRA is properly represented. This position requires attention and effort throughout the calendar year.


    • Press / Communications - responsible for sending out results press releases immediately following the race weekend, primarily to Roadracing World and other race oriented magazines/websites. Also responsible for sending notifications to membership via MailChimp and updating MRA Facebook page and Twitter Account. Updates and maintains the MRA Hotline, collects the mail from the Post Office, and cross-posts relevant information to other club sites as necessary. This position also assists the Vice President with contingency duties including contacting current and prospective contingency sponsors to ensure continued support in next season, phone and e-mail work to confirm forms, payouts, etc..., and assists in timely filing of contingency forms throughout the season. The workload for this position is year-round, but the heaviest load is immediately preceding, and during the race season.
