A quick reminder that the deadline for registration for this year’s Annual Membership Meeting and Party is 11:59 PM January 11, as required by our event venue .
Don’t miss this opportunity to fellowship with your fellow club members, enjoy a great meal, and participate in the election for this year’s club officers. See the full slate of candidates below. We will also accept nominations from the floor prior to the vote.
This year’s event will again honor three new inductees to the Chattanooga Cycling Hall of Fame: Chris Brown, Jay Young, and Tom Owen Sr.
As always, there will be drawings for gift certificates and swag from our local bike shops.
The purpose of CBC shall be to educate, promote, advocate and develop bicycling for transportation, fitness, and recreation; to serve the community; to provide opportunities to ride with others; to defend and protect the rights of cyclists; to secure safer and more bicycle-friendly riding conditions; to advocate the allocation of facilities for cycling on public lands; to promote bicycle safety by requiring the use of helmets on all rides and observing traffic regulations.
As 2023 draws to a close, our board members would like your feedback. How are we doing in fulfilling our mission, as stated in our bylaws?
On that last point, I’d like to again call attention to a critical need to ensure the club’s continued operation into 2024. We are in desperate need of a Treasurer. Our current treasurer is retiring off the board at the end of this year. We need someone who can make sure our bills get paid, oversee filing of our government reports, and prepare the annual budget. We hire an accountant to do most of the heavy work, but the Treasurer position does require some basic financial skills and the ability to devote a few (sometimes a few more) hours each month to keep us on track and fiscally responsible. Per our bylaws, a candidate for this job shall have been a club member for not less than 24 months on the date of their election. As with all our board positions this is an unpaid volunteer job.
