Nominations to join the Women of Australian Motor Sport (WAMS) Committee for 2018 are now open.
An initiative of the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS), WAMS was formed in 2010 and is heading into its eighth season of programs that aim to assist with the increased participation of women in motor sport.
Since the Committee’s inception, the volunteer group has worked alongside many men within the Australian motor sport industry who also make a significant contribution to women participating in the sport and their growth in various disciplines.
So irrespective of whether you are female or male, have extensive experience in the industry, are currently involved in any discipline or role; if you have strengths that you feel would be valuable to WAMS in helping to grow the participation of women in the sport, then your nomination is welcome and encouraged.
“We want to re-iterate that WAMS invites both men and women to nominate themselves for the WAMS Committee so we can ensure we have a wealth of experience to continue to grow and develop the WAMS Committee and our initiatives. The aim for WAMS- just as in most business practices – is to have the best people for the job’ said Chair Samantha Reid. “We have again included diverse judging panels for programs like the WAMS Junior Development Scholarship, Officials Exchange and the Trans Tasman Opportunity because they were the best people qualified”
Key WAMS initiatives included the WAMS Junior Development Scholarship, International Officials Exchange program between Australia and Singapore, the Virgin Australia Supercars Trans-Tasman Officials Exchange program with New Zealand, the WAMS Event Endorsement Package, WAMS Profiles of the Week, Come and Try Track Days, promoting female drivers to racing opportunities offered by the FIA’s Women and Motor Sport Commission, and continuous media aimed at promoting a positive sports culture for the full participation of women in all aspects of motor sport.
Nominations will be accepted until 5pm on Sunday 19 NOVEMBER, with the final selection being put to CAMS for acceptance and publicly announced by early December.
If you feel you would be a valuable asset to WAMS, please complete the nomination form and submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date. Late nominations will not be accepted
