TOP STORY

THANK YOU MARTIN SHAW
 


Along with the tidings of the season, I regretfully bring some unfortunate news to our BMX family.

It is my duty to advise our members that our BMXA CEO Martin Shaw has tendered his resignation to the Board of BMX Australia and we have regretfully accepted it.

Martin has been an integral part of our BMXA engine room since 2016 and has been a mentor and voice of stability and reason to all, providing guidance and council within and outside our sport.

The BMXA Board and I would like to take the opportunity to publicly wish Martin and his family safe ventures going forward in new endeavours.

Martin will remain at BMXA until late January but it goes without saying that we are diligently working with, among others, Sport Australia, in sourcing a new CEO to best serve the sport as we move forward.

To all of the Australian BMX family, season’s greetings and a safe, prosperous and happy New Year.

Regards

Darren Alomes – Chair, BMX Australia
