At its May 18 meeting, the Club’s Board of Directors formally convened our 2011 Nominations Committee. The Committee, chaired by board member Bill Ptacek, is charged with soliciting nominations, recommending board candidates to the Board of Directors, who must approve all candidates, and facilitating the election for the 2012 to 2014, three-year term. The board will be expanded from nine to 12 members.
Once in submission, all prospective candidates will be asked to complete a board candidate application or statement of interest and may be asked to interview with the Committee.
The election will conclude at the Club’s Annual Membership meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 11, 6:30 – 8:45 p.m., at the downtown Seattle REI Store (222 Yale Ave N). Ballots may be hand delivered at the Annual Meeting or dropped off at the Cascade office anytime before the meeting. Mail in ballots must be postmarked on or before Oct 11.
We recognize that the continuing vitality of the Club depends on an active and diverse group of directors. We encourage you to consider nominating yourself and/or others who you believe can lead the Club on its journey to creating better communities through bicycling.
