hi guys,
Some of us have been doing marshalling for over a year now, and more have swelled our ranks, so I think it's about time we gave our band of brother marshals a proper name.
Let's try and keep it professional, that way it will go with the image that we know what we are doing.
I was thinking of a name that had a catchy acronym, like;

W.A.M.M.A
West Australian Motorcycle Marshal Association

If anyone has any suggestions let's hear them.
Then maybe we can get some vinyl stickers for the bikes done.

SEMMA is taken, by some Yank sciencey mob

WAMM may be, using association might not be a good idea. May have legal meanings.

I read Association earlier and was just jumping on to say its a potential issue......but see you guys are all over it  :like


"Association" alludes to the fact that you are incorporated with another governing body  ;-*

Thanks but It's not all middle aged men that we support, ladies and children of all ages ride to.

However funny you think you are Marcus, I don't appreciate your comment. I take our work seriously as do I the safety of the cyclists of we support. Your comment infuriates me and I would ask the administrative team to remove it.
I asked for constructive and professional suggestions, yours is plain abusive.

Full Apology. Just jokes Joyce

Not Australian I presume so wouldn't count. But thanks for the research.

No probs. It is a hard one to come up with something.

Perhaps if you lose the WA focus,  think Nationally.
Cheers,

I had similar thoughts about the use of association.

It might pay to read through this.

http://asic.gov.au/for-business/starting-a-company/how-to-start-a-company/registering-not-for-profit-or-charitable-organisations/


I'm not to au fails with the legal side of wanting to give the marshals a name, maybe someone who knows can give it to me in lay mans terms, do we have to set up a not for profit organisation, do we need a committee, I just wanted to give us a name to be recognised as such, not just as "the bikies that help out."

But at this time we aren't national, we are just WA.

Still the name doesn't have to say that. Just trying to widen the scope for more options.
