RE:                   Nomination to the Montana Motorcycle Safety Advisory Committee


DATE:               April 19, 2005

It is my recommendation that (Len) Eric Albright be appointed, effective July 1, 2005 for a four-year term to the Montana Motorcycle Safety Advisory Committee.


(Len) Eric Albright is an instructor certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.  Eric was trained as an instructor in 2000 and a RiderCoach_ in 2002.  He has taught classes in Bozeman and Belgrade.


Mr. Albright is a RiderCoach_ certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and has an appointment for MSU-Northern as a temporary, part-time instructor of motorcycle rider safety training for Montana Motorcycle Rider Safety’s 2005 training season.


In their nomination of Mr. Albright, the MMRS instructors stated: “He is a dedicated instructor of motorcycle safety capable of broad vision and discretion.  He promotes motorcycle safety in his community and throughout Montana, and has actively recruited new RiderCoaches_ for Montana Motorcycle Rider Safety.  Eric is very interested in serving and capable of contributing to this program’s growth.”


Based on this information, I endorse his nomination to represent instructors on the committee and feel that he would serve the MMSAC well.
