Ted Cabral, the individual member representative on the AMA Board of Directors from the Northwest region, has resigned his board seat, effective immediately.
"I appreciate the opportunity I had to be on the AMA Board of Directors, and I have confidence in the direction the AMA is going as an organization," Cabral said. "I am going to miss my working relationship that I have developed with the AMA board. I have found it increasingly difficult to perform my duties as an AMA board member while also being the chairman of California's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation commission. California State Parks is going through a transformation process that requires an incredible amount of dedication and focus going forward. With that, I think it would better serve the AMA if I step down from my position on the AMA board."
AMA Board Chair Maggie McNally-Bradshaw thanked Cabral for his service on the AMA Board and wished him well on his future endeavors: "Ted clearly has a strong passion for motorcycling and motorcyclists' rights. The AMA Board respects Ted's decision, and we're looking forward to working with him as an AMA member and as a friend among the California riding community."
Cabral was appointed by California Gov. Jerry Brown to the OHMVR commission in 2013, and Cabral's term on the commission runs through March 2018.
