Candidates 2014

EBC’s Board of Directors accepts nominations throughout the year. Candidates are officially elected at our Annual General Meeting, this year on September 28, 2014 from 1pm-3pm at Ritchie Community Hall (7727 98 St).

Positions left vacant after elections may be filled through appointment by the Board of Directors. Appointed directors will need to be elected again at the next AGM.

Candidates and voting members must be members in good standing. To check the status of your membership, to renew your membership, and to see the list of member benefits, please visit our membership page.

All members elected in October will serve a two-year term starting in December, and are responsible for the governance (but not the day-to-day operations) of EBC. The time commitment is a minimum of ten hours a month. Our board member job description and code of conduct is available on our wiki, along with recent meeting minutes and our Society’s bylaws and charitable objects.  If you are unfamiliar with not-for-profit board governance, please read more here.

This is a great way to contribute to EBC if you share the vision of a bike-friendly Edmonton, and to shape the way EBC’s various programs develop.  All interested cyclists are encouraged to apply, and we are particularly seeking members that have skills or interest in non-profit management, accounting, grant writing, fundraising, or local advocacy. We are a growing organization with lots of projects on the go, and good governance is crucial to our success.

If you know of anyone that fits the bill, including yourself, please nominate today.

Candidates can be nominated from the floor of the meeting, but interested folks are also encouraged to share a bit about themselves in advance.

If you have any questions about the board, or just need a little encouragement, please e-mail [email protected].
