Election of Officers for 2022
You can still run for 2022 office!
Volunteering is a GREAT way to be a part of something larger in an effort to help our community by participating in an area of passion and interest. What area interests YOU??? Can you make a difference in 2022?
Portland Bicycling Club will hold the 2022 elections at our club member Zoom meeting this coming Thursday, December 2, at 7:00 PM. We welcome ALL nominations from the floor at this meeting prior to voting. ✎
Any one of our amazingly talented PBC members may run for one of the nine open positions (see below). Reach out to one of the current 2021 PBC board members if you have questions or want to learn more about a volunteer role in which you would like to serve for a one-year term (or more, maybe?).
If you are interested in running or in nominating someone, please contact any of our 2021 board members as soon as possible or simply reply to your December QR email ([email protected]) so we can work swiftly to present nominations at our club member meeting tomorrow evening; however, remember, we will also be accepting nominations from the FLOOR at our upcoming meeting.
