The American Motorcycle Association (AMA) named Edward Moreland the new vice president of the Government Relations Department.

The AMA also announced that Sean Maher, legislative affairs specialist, has been promoted to director of state affairs.

"With Ed in Washington, D.C. and Sean in our headquarter's office, the AMA is fielding the most experienced team possible to ensure that the AMA is in the best position to protect the rights of all motorcyclists," said Robert Rasor, AMA president...

The Government Relations Department is being restructured to more aggressively represent the needs of motorcyclists at all levels of government, said the AMA. Moreland and the Washington staff will be responsible for ensuring that motorcyclists' voices are heard at the federal level, while Maher will focus on issues at the state and local level.

"This restructuring puts an increased emphasis on state and local issues, ensuring they get the attention they deserve, while continuing the AMA's aggressive defense of motorcyclists' rights at the federal level for road riders as well as off-road riders," Moreland said. "We're looking forward to working with all motorcyclists to ensure the issues of concern to them are addressed."
