National President: Michael Romkes. (To contact: Use the “Contact Us” link above – Put “To the President” in the subject box.)
Michael comes to us from South Africa. He rode his first bike in 1986 and has been involved with CMA since 1993. Upon making the decision to immigrate to New Zealand with his family, the CMA International Director sent him on his way with a mandate to set up CMA in New Zealand. Only after two years of establishing himself and the family in Auckland did God then open the doors for CMA NZ to come into existence. CMA NZ was officially opened in 2006. Michael has a real passion to offer Christian motorcyclists support to minister in the motorcycling community and to spread the Good News that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour to turn to.
National Secretary: Joanne Lawless.
I am passionate about helping people be the best they can be. I’ve had a reasonable amount of life experience and I believe in what CMA does because it follows my personal belief about helping people as much as possible. I’m a member of Drury Presbyterian Church. I’ve been riding motorbikes since I was just a wee whippersnapper on the family farm. My first bike was called the Mountain Goat Farm Bike. From that I progressed to a Yamaha RD250. I’m married to Eoin, have two sons and two cats. Matthew, my younger son now rides too, he’s on a Suzuki GN250. I’m now riding a Triumph Bonneville, which I’m really enjoying…. Eoin has told me that this is my last bike!!!
National Treasurer: André Dippenaar.
André Dippenaar rides an adventure motorcycle, a Honda Africa Twin DCT Adventure Sport. He loves bikes and has a passion for the CMA ministry and the motorcycling community. André has been a CMA member since 2019.
