MSA requests nominations for membership of Specialist Committees

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

The Motor Sports Association is again seeking nominations for individuals to fill the vacancies on the Specialist Committees that represent the interests of the various disciplines of motor sport.


The Specialist Committees, covering Autotest, Cross Country, Historics, Karting, Race, Rallies, Speed Events and Trials, meet two or three times a year, normally at Motor Sports House to discuss and debate new regulations and other issues. The decisions and minutes are communicated via the Committee Chairmen to the next MSA Council meeting for approval.


All applicants must be a member of an MSA-recognised motor club or Regional Association which must ‘sponsor’ the application. However, there are no formal qualifications required other than the benefit of experience in motor sport. The role is entirely voluntary, although expenses will be paid to cover travel to meetings at Motor Sports House, and the appointment is normally for a three year term. No person will serve more than three consecutive terms, apart from in exceptional circumstances.


“We always try to ensure that the membership of the Specialist Committees is kept fresh,” says Colin Hilton, MSA Chief Executive. “We would particularly like to encourage younger members of the motor sport community who might not realise that they are eligible to stand for nomination. If they can offer their experiences and perhaps bring a different perspective to the role, it would help the various committees to continue to do a great job in developing and shaping the sport. We would encourage anyone with a passion for their sport to think about getting involved.”


How to apply

Applicants should submit a brief CV of motor sport involvement and achievements, including any relevant qualifications, together with name, address and contact details to the sponsoring MSA-registered club or Regional Association. The sponsor will forward the application to Andrea Wren at Motor Sports House, Riverside Park, Colnbrook, SL3 0HG.  This must be done as soon as possible as applications must be received before the end of June 2009 at the latest.


Applications are considered for the limited number of positions available each year, so the MSA would encourage those who may have applied before but not been successful, to consider reapplying this year.
