About board service

Come join the Board of Directors!

Cascade Bicycle Club is a 51-year-old organization with a rich and incredible history of gathering the bicycle community for exciting rides, leading groundbreaking advocacy campaigns, and teaching people of all ages, races, and abilities how to bike. We seek enthusiastic and driven candidates to join our Board of Directors who lead with a desire to see a better world for people who bike and have talents in the areas of fundraising, governance, finance, advocacy, or leadership experience in either the for-profit or nonprofit sectors. We're especially excited to welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds: Black, Indigenous, and People of Color candidates; Women, Trans, and Femme candidates; candidates with disabilities; LGBTQ+ candidates, and people outside of Seattle. 

If you or someone you know are interested in being a part of our vision of a safe and healthy world where bicycles bring people together, eliminate inequity, and create thriving communities, please email Board Governance Chair Richard Wolf at governancechair@cascade.org.

About board service

The board meets five times a year, has an annual retreat and a brief phone meeting in August. Cascade is both a direct services organization (we put on rides and events and have a strong education program) and an advocacy organization (we monitor local, regional and statewide planning and project implementation). The board meets six times a year along with an annual retreat and other meetings as necessary. Each board member is expected to participate on at least one board committee as well as participate in other activities.

Term length

A board term runs for three calendar years, starting January 1 after election. The bylaws disallow serving for more than two consecutive terms, though there is no limit on the total number of board terms one can serve.
