About the FIM
The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) is an international organization acting in all matters connected with motorcycling activities. As far as motorcycle sports are concerned, the FIM is the supreme and sole international authority empowered to control international motorcycling events organized under its jurisdiction throughout the world.
The Continental Unions (CONUs) (such as FIM North America) are bodies of the FIM. CONUs are recognized geographic subdivisions of, and are accountable, to the FIM.
There are six recognized CONUs, each named according to the continent in which it is located: FIM Asia, FIM AFRICA, FIM Europe, FIM Oceania, FIM North America and FIM Latin America.
Every Federation (FMN) in the geographic area of a CONU, is by virtue of its membership of the FIM, automatically a member of that CONU. FIM North America consists of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA).
The Presidents of the CONUs are voting members of the FIM Board of Directors.
The roles, duties, rights and obligations of a CONU will be regularly determined by the General Assembly and set out in the FIM By-Laws (as regularly amended) or in the role documents proposed by the FIM Board of Directors.
