Bylaw Review Committee
The Club has established a Bylaw Review Committee. The bylaws review will include open membership comment periods. Ideally, the committee will represent a cross-section of the membership, including people with both expertise in non-profit membership organization bylaw writing and those who can offer fresh perspectives from a range of relevant backgrounds. If you are interested in serving on the Bylaw Review Committee, or would like to suggest someone who can offer useful skills to this effort, please contact Bylaw Review Committee Chair Joey Gray at email@example.com by Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010. The volunteer commitment will be for an average of approximately 20 hrs/mo. from January to October, 2011.
Executive Director Selection Committee
The board has formed an Executive Director Selection Committee that will conduct a national search for a new executive director and make its recommendation to the full board. Members of the committee will include board member Peter Morgan as chair, another board member, one or two staff and two club members at-large to be appointed by the chair.
If you are interested in serving on the ED Selection Committee or would like to suggest a member who you think would be a good choice, please email your suggestion (with contact information) to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you suggest another member, please inquire with that member first to make sure s/he is interested. We anticipate a volunteer commitment of 25+ hours/month for three to five months.
The 2010 election for directors was adjourned to ~ March 22, 2011. In the interim, the board reconvened the Nominating Committee, which will interview and develop a slate of candidates to stand for election to the board of directors. Committee members include board member Michael Lazarus as chair, board member Dave White, members Josh Kavanagh and Erik Nilsson and staff Chuck Ayers and Kathy McCabe.
The Nominating Committee will present the slate to the full board for review and approval, with an election to follow in March. For 2011, the number of directors has been increased to 15 directors, and we’d like to have enough nominees to offer members choices. If you would like to suggest a member who you think would be a good choice, please email your suggestion (with contact information) to email@example.com If you suggest another member, please inquire with that member first to make sure s/he is interested.
Next meeting: Wednesday, January 12, 2011, 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Cascade Bicycle Club office
