FIM North America Board Appoints, Elects Members
FIM North America, the continental union of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme that represents North America, has elected a new slate of board members representing member federations at a Nov. 16 meeting.
American Motorcyclist Association President and CEO Rob Dingman was re-elected to a four-year term as FIM North America president. Holly Ralph, CEO of the Canadian Motorcycle Federation, was re-elected FIM NA Deputy President. AMA Chief Operating Officer James Holter was elected FIM NA Treasurer. Additional board members appointed to four-year terms by their respective member federations were CMA Honorary President John Pineo and AMA Director of Racing Mike Pelletier.
The positions are in effect November 2022 through November 2026.
AMA Director of International Competition Bill Cumbow was reappointed to the position of FIM NA Secretary General. This non-voting position is effective November 2022 through November 2024.
“It is my honor to continue representing the interests of North American motorcyclists on behalf of the AMA with respect to FIM-sanctioned activity,” Dingman said. “I will strongly advocate for the U.S. and North American perspectives on the world stage and work with the rest of the FIM NA board to grow motorcycling activity on our continent.”
The position of FIM NA President comes with a seat on the FIM board, where Dingman currently holds multiple leadership positions with the FIM, including serving as chairman of the finance committee of the FIM Board of Directors, the elected representative to the FIM Board for all FIM Continental Unions and as a member of the board executive committee.
