AGM Package 

 The AGM serves three purposes - 1) an opportunity to get together without our bikes,  2) to review what the club did in 2013 and 3) select a new slate of directors to lead the club for 2014.  Many of the Board of director positions are up for re-election since their terms are expiring. As well, for the past couple of years, we've been running with a reduced slate of directors (Both Andre Gauthier and Peter Tregunno have been doing double duty covering two portfolios). While some of the current Board are willing to remain next year, the Board would like to see new faces around our table in 2014.

Being a director does not have to be an onerous task - in fact, it can be a rewarding experience to take an idea that you have for the club and make it into a reality. The Board meets once a month at our club office on Booth Street.

If you think you'd like to be a part of the board of directors for 2014, please contact any of the current members of the board
