At the IAM RoadSmart's AGM, to be held on Thursday 22 November 2018 at 12.30pm, Council members Liz Coyle-Camp, Ken Keir and Derek McMullan will retire under Article 21 and, being eligible, offer themselves for re-election. Their election statements are as follows:
Elizabeth M Coyle-Camp
Recruiting, retaining and growing our membership is vital to the long-term success of IAM RoadSmart and to our ability to deliver our vision in an ‘intelligent’ and rapidly automating, digital world. As a public relations and marketing professional, I know that to grow our membership, we need to be relevant to both our existing and future members/customers. This requires IAM RoadSmart to be flexible, receptive and adaptable to changing market forces. We also want to be an exciting and dynamic organisation with the right policies, products, services and engagement strategies in place to attract a ‘digitally savvy’ Millennial generation, which has so much to gain from an IAM rider/driver education.
If re-elected, I will use my specialist knowledge, skills and expertise to help ensure that we have a ‘fit for purpose’ organisation with the right business marketing tools, tactics and technologies to drive organisational awareness, growth and influence.
Over the last 3 years we have improved our relationship with IAM RoadSmart Groups, clarified standards, improved brand image and awareness. We also improved the management, which has resulted in better motivation and attitude within the organisation. The result is we have greater influence on Road Safety.
Over the next 3 years we need to constantly improve this activity, but add significant development of membership numbers, ensuring our businesses offer a greater financial contribution and improve our systems and processes.
As personal mobility evolves over the future I firmly believe that IAM RoadSmart has a very real opportunity to have a much greater influence on Road Safety as we undoubtedly have real and improving knowledge of both driver and rider skills and thinking.
Like all IAM RoadSmart members I’ve had the huge pleasure of learning to ride and drive well, I’ve had the good fortune to develop skill and awareness which is a life-time benefit on the road. I’ve experienced the best of what is IAM RoadSmart.
For all its good work IAM RoadSmart's influence on UK road users and government transport policy remains limited. I joined the Council of IAM RoadSmart with the intention of working to promote our skills and influence to a wider audience so that others can enjoy the benefit to their skill and awareness on the roads.
I remain active in IAM RoadSmart’s invaluable group network and am committed to ensuring that IAM RoadSmart and the Groups are able to work effectively together to advance our road safety objectives.
