Annual Meeting Announcement and Call for Nominations

Thursday, October 1, 2020
This year, the annual meeting of PPTC members will be held virtually on November 8, 2020 at 4:00 PM. There will be brief reports from the ExCom officers, a featured speaker, and an opportunity to vote in advance, virtually, for two club officers and an amendment to the Bylaws. Information on how to vote will be forthcoming once the slate has been written for the annual meeting's elections. 
 
Nominations are needed for the positions of Deputy for Operations (currently Deb Reynolds) and Treasurer (currently Warren Farb). Please send nominations, including self-nominations, to office@potomacpedalers.org with the subject line “Nominations”, no later than October 19, 2020. Nominations should be accompanied by a brief statement of the candidates’ qualifications and interests in the position. 
 
The current composition of the PPTC Executive Committee is stipulated in the Bylaws, as amended 12/4/2017, as:
  • a President (whose official title shall be “President,” “Chair,” “Chairman,” “Chairperson” or “Chairwoman” as the person serving in that capacity shall prefer),
  • a Secretary,
  • a Treasurer, and
  • four additional Members-at-large for a total ExCom of 7 individuals. 
     

The ExCom proposes to amend the Bylaws to add 2 positions: A Vice President for the Century, and an additional member-at-large, for a total of 9 individuals. Of the current 4 members-at-large, one serves as the Vice President for Operations, and one serves as Vice President for Special Events. The remaining 2 members-at-large are actively engaged in communications, soliciting support for the club, outreach to the larger community, and other activities in support of the club’s mission. The ExCom views it as critical to establish the position of Vice President for the Century to enable the person serving in that position to have direct involvement with the management of the club, including addressing budgetary issues, and to support successful Back Roads Century event in the future. An additional member-at-large would be very helpful in expanding the social media presence of the club and further engaging in community activities. Addition of these 2 positions to the ExCom requires approval of the PPTC membership.
