Join the ExCom!
Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Do you want a leading role in the largest cycling club on the East Coast? Join the Potomac Pedalers Executive Committee! We need energetic, enthusiastic club members to join the ExCom to help plan the course for the future of our Club--the largest cycling club on the east coast with over 3,000 members! The Ex-Com, as it's known, has been working hard all year to make important changes for members, in terms of putting in effort and resources into the things that really matter to you! Our Chair, Matt Birnbaum, has infused the ExCom with great energy and initiatives, such as assisting the Ride Leader experience, providing enhancements to our website and social media, promoting more social rides and tailgates, building a dynamic Back Roads Century footprint in Shepherdstown, WV, and providing more member benefits, communications, and networking opportunities. Tackling these challenges together makes it fun and builds lasting relationships, as well as helps all members. Ask any ex-ExCom member!
Please consider your possible involvement in a 2-year term to the Executive Committee, bringing your ideas and experience to this dynamic group! The ExCom promises that most of the meetings will be by teleconference, and is respectful of the time of the members. We have a lot to do in terms of cycling safety and advocacy, developing new rides for beginners and families, and promoting cycling in the MD/DC/VA area. Please join us!
- Recording Secretary
- Member-at-Large (two openings)
The Recording Secretary is responsible for taking meeting notes and keeping track of what is voted on while member-at-large serve in no specified role but often take the lead in planning some events like the Volunteers Party and the Annual Meeting. Importantly, both the Recording Secretary and members-at-large, as well as all members of the ExCom, vote on Club business. ExCom meetings take place monthly; half are via teleconference.
To apply, please submit your name, your intended position, a short bio, and a few sentences about why you would like to join the Executive Committee. This information will be published on the Potomac Pedalers website and, if received by Dec. 15, in the January edition of the Pedal Patter.
Email your information to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Members will vote and the winners will be announced at the Annual Meeting on January 23, 2016.
