2015 AGM Wednesday October 28th (AGM Package now attached)

Festival Boardroom Meeting Room at Ottawa CITY HALL (NOTE NEW OLD LOCATION - Back at City Hall this year)
6:30pm - 9:30pm. Meeting will be called to order at 7pm.

The AGM is the time where we reflect back on the year that was and look forward to the coming year. It is also where we elect board members.  We have a LARGE number of board positions that will come up for election this year. 

  • Executive: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer (In the past, we've tried to offset changes in the executive by a year, but we've gone out of sync)
  • Two-Year Directors with Portfolio: Racing, Newsletter, Racing Events, Touring, Touring Events, RLCT, Social
  • One-Year Directors without Portfolio: Two positions free

Please think about becoming a Board member so that you can contribute your knowledge, ideas and passion for cycling.  The Board meets once a month (the first Monday evening, usually 7-9 p.m.) in our Clubhouse.  Business is transacted and there is time for lively discussion.  If you have any questions and are willing to become a Board Member, please contact Peter Tregunno or Jenny Moore Close .

The detailed AGM package is here.
