Just a reminder, nominations for the Board of CRCA are still being accepted through this Sunday September 25.

All positions are open, and we still have a couple of positions without a nominee, so if you have an interest in any position, please contact Fred David, the CRCA Board’s secretary, at secretary[at]crca.net.

Self-nominations are allowed and encouraged!

A description of the roles of each position are included in the bylaws at http://www.crca.net/about/by-laws/, and anyone interested should feel free to contact a current Board member about any questions (for contact info, see http://www.crca.net/about/2016-board-of-directors/).

Each person accepting a nomination for a Board position needs to submit a brief statement (less than 300 words) explaining his or her qualifications for the position, interest and motivation for running. These statements will be publicized to club members in advance of the vote for the 2017 Board.

Outgoing Board members will be available to provide a handover of responsibilities to incoming Board members. A smooth transition to simplify the job of a newly elected member is key to the organization continuing to provide excellent racing and training opportunities.

Board members receive free club membership, free entry to club races, exemption from marshaling duties, and team duty points for their sub-team.

Serving on the Board is also a great way to meet other New Yorkers that are passionate about bicycle racing. Please consider nominating yourself or a fellow member to help the club move forward into 2017.
