Dear DMCC Members,
The members of the Board of Directors have been working diligently over the last 3 months to review our club’s bylaws. They were last updated in 1990, so we had quite a few areas that needed to be addressed! In general, the changes the Board is proposing are to better align the bylaws to how the club has been conducting business in recent years. Most changes are reflected in the descriptions of Board of Director positions, how Board members are elected, and how Member meetings and Board meetings will be conducted.
The link to Proposed Changes to Des Moines Cycle Club Bylaws will take you to a document that provides a side-by-side comparison of the current bylaws and the proposed revised bylaws. The current bylaws are on the left-hand side of the document and the proposed bylaws are on the right-hand side. The changes have been indicated in two ways: items that are being removed are shown on the left with strike-through text and items being added are shown on the right with underlined text.
At the Member meeting on January 15, 2018, members will need to vote on the proposed changes to enable the elections for a new Board of Directors. Each individual Member and each adult in a Family Membership are voting Members of DMCC. For purposes of this meeting, you will be able to vote if you are either a 2017 or 2018 paid Member.
Please take the time to review the proposed changes. Pursuant to the requirements of the bylaws, if you would like a hard copy mailed to you, please email by December 18, 2017 to DesMoinesCycleClub@gmail.com, including your address, and we will mail you a copy.
January 9, 2018 Update
At the Member Meeting on January 15th, at 6:00 PM at F&O's in Urbandale, current members of DMCC will have an opportunity to elect nine members for the DMCC Board of Directors. Members are considered "current" if they were registered as members in 2017, have renewed membership for 2018, or have joined as new members for 2018. If you are uncertain if you are a current member, please review the Membership section on our website to reach the membership system, renew, or join. Please do so before the January meeting.
The position descriptions and terms are detailed in the proposed bylaw changes linked here. This link will take you to bio's for all the candidates, as well as the positions they would like to be considered for. Where appropriate, candidates have indicated the position they would prefer when nominated for more than one position.View proposed changes
