It's that time of year again. Your club needs volunteers to step up and serve on the Board of Directors. If you have ever wished that AV did this or that, now is your opportunity to help make the club better. The Board is responsible for running the club -- if you want to influence the direction of the club, please consider joining the Board. It's a great chance to give back to a club that's provided well for its members for over two decades!
The AV board generally meets monthly and for the past 2 years, most of the meetings have been via video conference. Between board meetings, there are generally some email discussions to participate in and sometimes action items to follow up on. It is a good way to better get to know your fellow club and board members off the bike, and also learn what it takes to keep this club running smoothly. If you have any questions on what it is like to be on the board, send an email to the election coordinator.
You may nominate yourself as a candidate in the 2018 Board Election. Nomination is simple: send an e-mail to the election coordinator with your name, stating that you would like to run for 2018 Alto Velo Board of Directors, and a short paragraph describing yourself, your vision for the club, and why you'd make a good Board member.
The maximum number of Directors is eleven.
To qualify as a candidate in the Election, and to be eligible to vote in the Election, you must be a 2018 Member of Alto Velo Racing Club in Good Standing on the Record Date, which is January 7, 2018. Remember, you need to have your dues AND waiver with wet signature in the Membership Coordinator's hands by the Record Date -- do not wait till the last minute!
The Election will be held during the first half of January 2018 using an online process in compliance with the Club Bylaws. We anticipate announcing the 2018 Board members at the banquet.
