Upcoming DMCC Board Elections

There will be significant turnover on the Des Moines Cycle Board of Directors starting in January 2022 and we need members to step up to fill positions. Six, yes, SIX of the nine Des Moines Cycle Club Board of Directors positions will need to be filled.

These include the major DMCC leadership positions, so it’s a great opportunity to provide direction to the Club, get to know other members, and use your particular set of skills in service to the bicycling community. Will you be forced to sink or swim with everyone else abandoning ship? OF COURSE NOT! Every one of the current board members will be available to help any way they can during the transition.

Is serving on the DMCC Board a time-consuming and onerous responsibility? NO! There is one two-hour board meeting each month, along with a few additional hours depending on the position, e.g. balancing the books, creating a newsletter, planning rides or meetings, helping with membership questions, etc. Is being a DMCC Board member actually fun? YES! We have a great group of people in this Club!

The following positions are open with the terms listed:

  • President (3-year term)
  • Vice-President (2 years remaining of term)
  • Treasurer (2 years remaining of term)
  • Membership Chair (2 years remaining of term)
  • Ride Co-Chair (3-year term)
  • Communications Co-Chair (3-year term)

 

Descriptions for the position duties as well as the Willingness to Serve form. If you would like to nominate someone for one of these positions, please send an email to desmoinescycleclub@gmail.com. All those interested in running for one of these positions will need to submit a completed Willingness to Serve form by 10:00 p.m. on November 19, 2021.

This year, elections will probably be held virtually again since we’re not sure if we’ll be meeting in person in December. Elections will be conducted via an email restricted survey from December 1, 2021 through December 8, 2021.

The Election Committee will be verifying member emails in the coming weeks. Each DMCC member in good standing (paid 2021 or 2022 membership) is eligible to vote. The committee will be verifying the email on file in our membership system is correct as well as collecting emails for all members with Family memberships.
