Executive Committee Open Positions - Applications Needed!

Tuesday, November 28, 2017


Members, WE NEED YOU!

Perhaps it's the early Annual Meeting and the end-of-season bike fatigue, but we have not received applicants for the open ExCom positions. This is a dire matter because the Club can not operate without a functioning Executive Committee. It may seem that the Club operates on auto-pilot but it does not. Your fellow Club members make sure things go as smoothly as possible. Executive Committee members have a very important, yet unseen, role in the Club. Without an Executive Committee directing Club operations, the Club can not function. Have you been sitting on the sidelines? THIS COULD BE YOUR MOMENT!


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! 


Please consider your possible involvement in a 2-year term to the Executive Committee, bringing your ideas and experience to this dynamic group! We have a lot to do in terms of cycling safety and advocacy, developing new rides, and promoting cycling in the MD/DC/VA area. Please join us!


Open positions:

  • Vice-Chair, Century: Works with the committees responsible for planning and executing the Back Roads Century. 
  • Vice-Chair, Special Events: Works with the committees responsible for planing and executing the weekend and other special events rides along with planning the Volunteer Dinner and the Annual Meeting.
  • Recording Secretary: Responsible for taking notes during the ExCom meetings, drafting the minutes and submitting them for publication on the website.
  • Member-at-Large: Responsibilities as agreed to between the Chairman and the member.
All members of the ExCom, vote on Club business. ExCom meetings take place monthly; half are via teleconference.


As you can see we have some big openings! Now is the time to come forward and serve on the ExCom if you have thoughts about the future direction of Potomac Pedalers.


Applications are needed ASAP. Members will vote and the winners will be announced at the Annual Meeting on December 3, 2017.
