The Motorcycle Industry Council Board of Directors re-elected Larry Little last week as its chair for the next year.

Gathering for a first-quarter meeting, in conjunction with the MIC’s annual meeting in Indianapolis, the board also selected other longstanding industry veterans to lead the trade association.

Mark Blackwell is the MIC’s new vice chair, Eric Anderson returns as secretary/treasurer, and Tim Buche was once again named president and chief executive officer.

Little has served as the MIC chair since 2003. In addition to Little, Blackwell and Anderson, the MIC Board of Directors includes Ray Blank, Steve Bortolamedi, Russ Brenan, Jon-Eirk Burleson, Pieter de Waal, Don Emde, Frank Esposito, Steve Johnson and Dennis McNeal.

The Motorcycle Industry Council exists to preserve, protect and promote motorcycling through government relations, communications and media relations, statistics and research, aftermarket programs, development of data communications standards, and activities surrounding technical and regulatory issues. As a not-for-profit, national industry association, the MIC seeks to support motorcyclists by representing manufacturers and distributors of motorcycles, scooters, motorcycle/ATV/ROV parts and accessories, and members of allied trades such as insurance, finance and investment companies, media companies and consultants.

The MIC is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., with a government relations office in metropolitan Washington, D.C. First called the MIC in 1970, the organization has been in operation since 1914. Visit the MIC at mic.org.
