DWDAM is managed through an elected committee to support the function of the group.

As an affiliated IAM RoadSmart Group, we operate to IAM Roadsmart Group Guidelines.

Group Chair – Jim was elected Chair at the 24/11/2021 AGM. Jim joined the DWDAM committee in Nov 2015 and previously held the posts of Vice Chair and Events Coordinator, which he combined with Social Media.

Jim is a qualified IMI National Observer and holds IAM Masters (Distinction). 

Group Secretary – Graham is in his 9th year as Group Secretary. He is a qualified National Observer and a very experienced and knowledgeable advanced motorcyclist with an excellent record of gaining Advanced Riding Test success with his Associates

Membership Secretary – Keith is in his 7th year as Membership Secretary and 6th year as GDPR Manager. A qualified IMI National Observer, Keith has had great success of guiding Associates to Advanced Riding Test success. Keith is also a member of the Training Support Team

Often the first point of contact with new members, Keith has done much to develop and streamline the membership registration process. A recent Group Audit commended DWDAM’s management of all Group related GDPR procedures, a compliment earned on merit by Keith.

Training Support Team – Associate Training Coordinator – Alan is another founder member of the group. He is the lead point of contact for Associate training and coordinates activities and meetings. Alan has held this important role for the past 6 years previously as part of the OSC and latterly within the Training Support Team.

Alan is a qualified IMI Local Observer, and has consistently achieved considerable advanced riding test success with his Associates.

Treasurer – Mike has held the post of Group Treasurer since the inauguration of the group as DWDAM in 2009. A group stalwart in every respect who has consistently made an excellent contribution to the efficient financial running of the group. A keen motorcyclist himself, Mike is often out on one of his motorcycles, riding for leisure with fellow members.

Social and Events Secretary – Julian joined the committee mid 2022 to take on the role of social and events secretary.

A seasoned motorcyclist and National Observer, Julian joined from the Wirral Advanced Motorcyclists, bringing with him ideas new to DWDAM to inject some energy into DWDAM’s Social Club side of the group.

Committee Member – Rosie joined the committee at the 29/11/2023 AGM to help out with the general administration of the group as she is a qualified accountant with a background in business management.

Being bike mad and having passed her test many moons ago, Rosie decided to take the advanced test to continue learning and improve her skills, and is now an active member of the group.

Committee Member – Sue joined the committee in 2023 with a main focus on publicising all the group activities; a niche role that enables her to utilise skills from her design background and a long career in the film industry.

She is an experienced rider and began her love affair with bikes at the age of 16. She rides on and off road and also uses her spare time to indulge in her passion for painting … motorcycles obviously !
