AMA Women & Motorcycling Conference Begins Thursday


The Motorcycle Industry Council will be hosting a reception and luncheon for women in the motorcycling industry at the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference in Carson City, Nevada. The event will take place this Thursday, July 26 — the opening day of the conference — at noon in the Juniper Room at the Gold Dust West Hotel.

“The Motorcycle Industry Council has been a wonderful advocate for women as motorcyclists in America, and we are very happy to have them join us at the conference and host this special tribute to the women in our industry,” said AMA Marketing Manager Tigra Tsujikawa.

“Women are such an important part of our industry, and we are proud to be a part of this conference,” said MIC Vice President Cam Arnold. “This reception and luncheon will honor the women who have given so much of themselves to grow the motorcycling market and have played a significant role in increasing the number of women who are riding motorcycles today.”

Women who work in the powersports industry and who are registered to attend the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference are invited to join RoadBike’s own Trica Szulewski at the conference. To RSVP, or for more information about the reception and luncheon, please contact Cam Arnold at
