BMF Man Takes On New Role At FEMA
Friday, 4 March 2011
Chris Hodder, the BMF's Government Relations Executive, has been elected as Director of Communications for the Brussels' based Federation of European Motorcyclists Associations, FEMA.
Chris, 31, has been with the BMF since 2007 and has been the BMF's representative at FEMA since then. He takes over the role from Morten Hansen, General Secretary of NMCU Norway, who has stood down.
This is Chris's second year on the FEMA board, a task he undertakes in addition to his BMF role. In his previous role as FEMA's Director of Public Policy, Chris directed FEMA's lobbying work and helped devise campaign strategies on issues such as the latest Type Approval regulations.
The new role involves working with the other three directors and the FEMA president in helping to improve FEMA's communication both internally and externally. Chris will primarily provide oversight, but will often be directly involved with developing communication.
Speaking after his election Chris said: "I am very happy to have been re-elected to the board by my European peers and hope that this year will result in many campaign victories for FEMA and consequently for BMF members."
This is a role funded and supported by the BMF as a show of its commitment on campaigning for UK riders' rights at the EU level.
