Interim chair appointed to Motorcycle Safety Advisory Council

ACC Minister Judith Collins has today announced Mr Paul Searancke has been appointed to the role of interim Chair of the Motorcycle Safety Advisory Council (MSAC).

Mr Searancke replaces Dr Gareth Morgan, Chair of the Council since its inception in January 2011, who has stepped down to focus on other commitments.

Ms Collins is also calling for nominations for the role of permanent Chair.
“To register your interest, please contact the MSAC Secretariat at info@motonz.org.nz,” Ms Collins says.
