Slight change to the Monthly Meeting. We will slide a week to Election Day and other travel conflicts. So next meeting will be on 13 November at 6pm. Agenda to follow



Pax Velo Members,

First thing, please save the date of Saturday, 12 January 2019 for the Pax Velo annual club party and awards presentations! More details to come in the following months! The next club meeting will be on Tuesday, 6 November. Location is TBD but we will be moving this month’s meeting to the new time of 6pm. Announcement to follow. 

Secondly, it has become time for there to be a transition in leadership of the club. The current board has been intact volunteering our time for 4 years now and so it is time to get a few people in with fresh ideas and enthusiasm to lead the club going forward. Laura and I will be stepping down at the end of the year. Barry, in the best interest of the club, is leaning towards making himself the volunteer coordinator as it has become apparent that this is a critical role. Fred will remain on the Board as the treasurer. There are four roles on the board (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and so the new board members will work together with the remaining board member(s) to decide who fills each role going forward. Therefore, we will be looking for two and more likely three new board members in 2019.

This is how it will work. We will be accepting nominations now through the middle of December. Please email me at jesse.carrington@gmail.com with any nominations. We will then discuss with nominees to see if they would be willing to fill the role should they be selected. You may also certainly nominate yourself should you so desire. At the end of year party, if we happen to have more volunteers than needed to fill the roles, we will hold a vote to determine who would assume the roles on the board.

I ask that all club members seriously consider if they may be able to take on these roles and give back to the club that has given so much to the cycling community and likely provided you with countless opportunities to ride over the years. If we are unable to obtain volunteers, then I would sadly say that the club would be in serious jeopardy going forward in to 2019. Feel free to let me know any questions that you may have. 

Ride safe,
Jesse
