My current role is North Island Vice President (NIVP). I have held this position since the Wanganui AGM in 2021. In addition to this I am also the current Taranaki President.
I joined TRMCC in 2016. In the time I have been in TRMCC I have been in the role of Taranaki President twice, and have also shared the important National Membership role until this could be filled, at the same time managing my NIVP duties.
I am in the role of NIVP to bring positive input to this club, and I have a number of goals I want to achieve. They have been delayed by Covid in my tenure, however I look forward to the opportunity to see these through.
A Vice Presidents role can be testing at times, and I have had to make some tough decisions in my roll as NIVP to resolve issues and conflict. I have the skills to do this.
In developing relationships with as many members as possible, I attend several North Island events each year. I also support the South Island Dice runs and have strong ties with many members in the South Island. Chris Harvey (SIVP) and I talk regularly about all Chapters and ideas to assist Chapters. This will continue if I am re-elected. I like to think that all TRMCC travellers are welcome to the Shed and I have hosted many members here. I am very passionate about TRMCC and have made many great friends around New Zealand.
I look forward to continuing to give 100% to the NIVP roll if re-elected and working for you.

Thanks Shane

I’m Rob Thorne,
I have been a member for 8yrs, 4 of which I was Auckland Chapter President.  I have remained on the committee as the Secretary for 2yrs and currently the Auckland VP.
I am  passionate about Triumph Riders, I only ride our name sake, Triumphs and would like to be part of the positive movement forward.  I would like to focus on getting more cohesive communications with neighbouring chapters and chapter rides.
As the Auckland members are aware, I’m always available and approachable and not afraid to give me a call. I’m always available to discuss matters with members and hear their thoughts and suggestions for various matters of the chapter or the club generally.
I believe that our foremost part of joining and staying in this club is riding our bikes, the companionship and bonds made of like minded people and just having fun doing all of that.
