Get your ride leader vest, club jersey April 30, May 14
Ride leader vests are finally here! The vests are top quality and guaranteed to be seen (there’s even reflective striping on the back pocket). We had 22 club volunteers lead at least three rides last year to qualify for the vests as a thank you gift.
Vest will be distributed at the Sharing Wheels kids bike work party on April 30, and at the May 14 club meeting, as well as at a few rides along the way. Club jerseys - paid for and some extra for sale - will also be there.
If you see someone wearing a vest, tell them “thank you” for being the lifeblood of our bike club. And ask them to help you become a ride leader
– we ordered extra vests for new ride leaders in 2015.
BIKES Club elections May 14
The May 14 meeting agenda includes the election of the club officers who make up our board for the coming year. Will this be the year YOU will step up and help make BIKES a fun and effective force for cycling in Snohomish County? Volunteering also builds job skills and personal confidence.
Like every organization, we need new blood. Commit some of your time to BIKES.
All positions will be open for nominations in May, however we do have volunteers to run for president (Kristin Kinnamon), treasurer (Debby Grant) and secretary (Mary Jo Gerst). So, we are most in need of:
Vice president: Helps coordinate events and activities; performs duties of president in her absence; responsible for planning programs (speakers, slideshows, topics) for general meetings. 3-5 hours per month.
Ride Coordinator (not a board position): Contact ride leaders and coordinate a monthly calendar of rides; submit rides to newsletter editor and post to website; encourage and mentor new ride leaders; help create tours and training rides calendars.
Website Content Coordinator (new, non-board role): Would you like to get experience working on a website? With a short lesson and some practice, you can update the ride calendar, add events to the home page, or post minutes or photos.
