AMA Organizer News

Welcome to the new, at-your-fingertips AMA Organizer News!

Some of you may remember the previous version of AMA Organizer News, published as a printed document from 2009 to 2014. This page will allow us to communicate with you, our AMA organizer, every quarter via an e-newsletter. 

Over the past few years, the AMA has updated a lot of documents, policies and procedures to improve the consistency and functionality of AMA events. 

This page/e-newsletter is designed to guide you to the resources you need, remind you of policies and procedures and inform you of the latest happenings affecting you as an event organizer.

Let's have a safe and fun year of riding and racing, and, as always, reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have. 


AMA clubs and promoters are sent the e-news quarterly to the email supplied on the charter. If you would like additional officers in your club to receive the email, have them subscribe here
