State/Provincial Rider Education Director


Selection Process

  The selection process for a State/Provincial Rider Education Director is simple. The prospective applicant may have been asked to become an R.E.D. by the State/Provincial Director, or may have volunteered for the job. The Region Rider Education Director is informed of the State/Provincial Director's choice and also has input in their final decision. In deciding on the applicant, one must remember that they need not be a Motorcycle Safety Instructor. The applicant should be a self starting, self motivated, team player, who can work with both the State/Provincial Director and Region Rider Education Director, as the applicant will be a member of both staffs. This person should also have a genuine interest in the members' riding skills, safety and knowledge. The applicant needs to be enrolled in the program.

Communication

  The exchange of information, ideas and programs is strongly encouraged of all R.E.D.s as this will insure a cohesive team of Rider Education Directors that will aid each other in their jobs. The Rider Education Program provides information on safety and knowledge to the association through its R.E.D.s in a totally voluntary atmosphere. The R.E.D.s do not make policy or requirements to the membership. Only the operational directors have the responsibility for the policy making process through the proper chain of command.
