Ellen Pfeiffer Award 2013 – congratulations to Anna Zee

Anna received the Award in recognition of her contribution to WIMA and motorcycling causes on a national and european level.

Extract from GB nomination:

“During the 1990’s Anna became increasingly involved in the activities of the the largest UK Bike Membership Organization.  She was elected to the post of PTS (Political and Technical Services Director) of the BMF in the late 1990s, a role she continued to play through to the early 00s. Anna was responsible for the direction and policy of the two BMF Government Relations Executives during a time of pressure on Motorcycling in the UK and especially in the EU.

Anna was also the Chair of the BMF for over 5 years. Having guided the BMF organisation to survival, Anna has recently reverted to the PTS Director role, where she has been instrumental in supporting FEMA [Federation of European Motorcycle Associations] to an effective future.

She has always prioritised European lobbying at the expense of narrow national organizational interests.

Anna has given a huge amount of her time and personal support to a future for Motorcycling in Europe and says: ”Support your own biker organisation; whether it is BMF [UK], BDU (Deutschland) MAG [Nederlandse] , etc: FEMA will represent us all!. And let us not forget that European policies on motorcycling influence other governmental organisations in other parts of the world.” “
