    As we approach the end of 2022, many good things have been happening.  We plan to move over to our new website, Club Express, with many enhancements over our current site.  Our main focus is to have leaders list rides. There are many other things our club might get involved with - but our number 1 priority is always, leading rides for our members. Our fall calendar is filling up nicely.

Our Board consists of seven (7) members: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Coordinator, Rides Coordinator and Leadership Coordinator. We meet at least six times per year and communicate more frequently by email. Detailed descriptions are contained in the Bylaws. Three roles require that you be a Club leader—this means having taken and passed the Club’s Leadership Training Course, given once a year. Most of these roles can be handled by two people jointly, and we have found in recent years - that works quite well.

  • President presides at all Board meetings. Must be a Club member for at least two years or a member of the Board for at least six months and a Club Leader.
  • Vice-President assumes the role of President in their absence and may head specific projects. Must be a Club Leader.
  • Secretary is responsible for Board meeting minutes and general Club correspondence.
  • Treasurer directs Club finances and does things like receive and deposit collected dues, coordinate insurance coverage and file of the Club’s tax returns. Must be a Club member for at least two years or a Board member for at least six months.
  • Membership Coordinator promotes membership in the Club, coordinates with outside organizations on membership related matters, respond to member inquiries.
  • Rides Coordinator coordinates and oversees the scheduling of all rides offered by the Club. Must be a Club Leader.
  • Leadership Coordinator organizes and gives the annual leadership training course and promotes bicycle safety. Must be a Club Leader.

Continuity serves the Club best.  The Board is recommending this slate for 2023 at the Nominating Meeting on Tuesday, October 11th and nominations will close at the conclusion on October 17th at 8PM.  You are welcome to nominate anyone you think would make a positive contribution to running the club by emailing me at president@5bbc.org. Active Club members will receive a ballot shortly after.  There will be an Annual Members Meeting as part of the Board Meeting on Monday, November 7th, via ZOOM at 8pm at which the election results will be announced.
