Fred Fox, chairman of Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties, has announced he will not accept the nomination for another term on the MIC Board of Directors for 2007.
Fox’s decision, effective in February, was made to encourage other industry leaders to invest their time in the association’s efforts to promote and preserve the motorcycle industry, according to a MIC press release.
The MIC 2007 Board of Directors election process begins this month with nominations being accepted for three open aftermarket/allied trades director positions.
Fox served on the MIC board for 13 years, the longest tenure for an aftermarket/allied trades board member.
“I’ve really enjoyed my 13 years of service to the industry in this capacity,” Fox said in the press release. “I’m especially proud of the formation of the American V-Twin Committee and its work with the EPA in securing the future of the smaller volume independent motorcycle manufacturers. I look forward to continuing to support the important work of the MIC.”
The MIC Board of Directors will recognize Fox for his service to the industry February at the 2007 MIC Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.
The MIC noted Fox’s leadership he provided to the association, including his dedication to strengthening the group’s aftermarket membership and his contributions to the MIC’s Discover Today’s Motorcycling media relations efforts.
The MIC is a not-for-profit, national trade association representing manufacturers and distributors of motorcycles, scooters, motorcycle/ATV parts and accessories and members of allied trades, located in Irvine, Calif. psb
