MAG arranges debate for incoming Chair candidates.

MAG Chair candidates debate

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) has arranged for a debate to take place between the candidates for a new Chair, despite having to cancel its Annual Group Conference for a second year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

There are two candidates for the position of Chair, and a debate and Q&A has been arranged so that the candidates can showcase their Manifestos and answer any questions submitted by the membership.

Members can submit questions in advance using MAG’s ‘self-serve’ database  Any member unable to access this should contact Central Office, who will provide a passkey to their self-serve account.

Alternatively, they can contact Central Office via email, by post or with a phone call (see below for full contact details). Any questions must be submitted no later than noon on Wednesday 1st September 2021.

There will be provision for a limited number of delegates to attend the debate and members must reserve their place by no later than noon on Wednesday 1st September 2021.  If the limit is reached prior to this date, reservations will close early.  Members should note that entry will be strictly by prior arrangement only and there will be no entry to anyone simply turning up on the day.  Number restrictions are in line with the venue’s fire and safety policies.

Current Chair of MAG, Selina Lavender, said “I’m very pleased that, despite having to cancel our Annual Group Conference for a second time, we will be able to conduct a debate between the candidates for a new Chair, thereby providing our members with the opportunity to give them both due consideration prior to voting.”

Voting will be strictly limited to one vote per eligible member, and all votes will be registered against membership numbers.  Votes can be registered using the self-serve database, or by using the voting slip included with the latest edition of The ROAD (this can also be downloaded at

Voting opens at 00:01 on Wednesday 1st September 2021 and closes at 23:59 on Monday 20th September 2021.  The outcome will be released on Saturday 25th September 2021, which is the date that the 2021 Annual Group Conference would have taken place.
