Pedal Off the Pounds Announcement

After 5 years coaching and leading Pedal Off the Pounds, Marty Hupp is turning the reigns of leadership over. Pedal Off the Pounds has continued to grow and evolve in amazing ways and we are excited to see where the new leadership takes the program. The DMCC board has selected Carolyn Weaver and Joe Finnegan to lead Pedal Off the Pounds. Joe is the 2017 biggest loser and coached in 2018. He brings a depth of cycling knowledge and has been a mentor to many new and seasoned riders. Carolyn was a participant of Pedal Off the Pounds in 2018 and finished in the top 5 losers. She coached this year and has been selected as the ride chair for the DMCC board. Both are very involved members of the Des Moines Cycle Club. Please help us congratulate Carolyn and Joe in their new role.


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. The Executive Committee often performs a long-­‐range planning role and acts for the Board of Directors or the entire club between meetings.

In general, the President and Vice President of the Club work with the Board of Directors to determine plans and policies.
