Dave McQuery has resigned from his position as member at large from July to June. Dave added some spice to board meeting discussions over the past few months and served as ride leader for the Jim O’Horo Memorial Columbia Gorge Explorer, but other activities have taken him away from being able to attend board and club meetings, so he decided to step down. This opens the remainder of a July-to-June position on the board. The four members at large have few board responsibilities, but their presence is important. The perfect combination of members at large is diverse, representing the fast, the slow, the weekend, and the weekday riders. We would like someone who rides enough that they are hearing complaints and issues of members and knows our rides; but a member at large could also be someone who often rides alone or commutes by bike and knows the streets, the bike politics, and cycling issues so you can keep the board in the loop. A member at large is by default also a member of our safety committee. For more on this, click here to consult the safety page online (or from our website go to the pulldown menu on the “Rides” tab, select “Bicycle Safety,” and click on the safety policy link in the first paragraph). Being a member at large allows you to get to know the inside workings of the club firsthand by being at critical meetings. There is also a small perk – members of the board are offered a coupon code for free club dues. If interested, please let me know at [email protected].
