Run for the board
Board of Directors nominations requested
by Don Volta, Vice-President Board of Directors
The board of directors of the Cascade Bicycle Club represents the voice of the members. Its role is to ensure that Club resources are being used to the greatest benefit for all members as well as the larger cycling community. Its only responsibility is to the membership. As directors, we have the best vision, and make the best decisions, when we have a diverse group of people considering the issues that affect the direction and reach of the Club.
At our May 16, 2012, meeting, we (the Club's Board of Directors) approved the expansion of the current board from 12 to 14 members providing for two new members. Board member Don Volta will be chairing the Nominations Committee, which is soliciting candidates interested in standing for election to the board.
We need your help in identifying and recruiting Club members who would help build a strong and visionary board. Please submit your nominations, including self-nominations, to the Nomination Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly to the Club office. We ask that you use the nominations form that we have created for this purpose. We need to receive your nominations by July 13, 2012, for them to be considered. The Nomination Committee will contact nominees to schedule interviews over the period of July 16 to Aug. 3. Following the interviews the board will consider and approve a slate of candidates for the 2012 elections that will take place in October, 2012.
Service on the Cascade Board is for a three-year term and we are seeking qualified mission-driven Club members who will help us continue to move our club forward. Ideal candidates will have a history of service to Cascade and/or the cycling community, have specific skills needed by the board, the time and passion to contribute, and enhance board diversity in terms of, e.g., age, culture, geography, and constituent representation. We encourage you to consider nominating yourself or others who can make a contribution.
