Des Moines Cycle Club Leadership Structure and Duties of Board Members

The Des Moines Cycle Club's (“the Club”) leadership structure, set out in its bylaws, is largely a matter of custom, preference, and practicality. The critical leadership positions are the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership Director. The Club's officers and various event and committee chairs usually comprise the Board of Directors, which establishes policy and provides overall direction for all Club activities.
