The Board of Directors represents the voice of the members. Its role is to ensure that Club resources are being used to support Cascade’s mission to create a better community through bicycling.
“I truly believe that we can create a better community through bicycling and have seen that happen through Cascade’s youth programs and education work. I bring a fresh perspective, passion for community engagement, steadfast skills in campaign management, and a wide-angle lens on issues communities face when it comes to access to safe environments for cycling. I would be excited to work alongside the board and staff to continue to build club membership and expand reach to new communities and demographics.”
“Like many people, I owe Cascade Bicycle Club. They helped re-kindle my passion for cycling, and they work to make cycling safer and more enjoyable for everyone. I want cycling to be a mainstream activity for many. I want to see it funded as an essential mode of transportation… I’d like to see Washington State as a model for a bicycle-friendly place to live. Cascade is an influential organization, and I’d like to help leverage this influence… I have some relevant skills, and I have the time to commit to put in the effort required to make a difference. I can bring my leadership experience in strategic planning, network planning, marketing, and program management to the table… I’d like to give back a little since I owe them for getting me back on the bike. “
Additionally, the proposed bylaws changes were adopted with a vote of 750/24/19 (yes/no/abstain).
Cascade is a membership-based organization, and its members ultimately determine the course, impact, and efficacy of the organization in working towards its mission of creating a better community through cycling. Voting in our annual election is a great way to participate in the future of the club and we appreciate your participation.
