RLCT 2016 - We're looking for a coordinator for the tour!

After much consideration, the Board of Directors has decided to put out a request for proposals for the position of RLCT coordinator.

We've seen incredible growth in the tour over the past decades; the tour has consistently sold out for the past number of years. However, as riders of the tour, we don't get to see is the "behind the scenes" complexity of this event, and the planning required. To keep producing a quality tour, the board of directors has decided that it is time to try a contract approach for the coordinator’s position for the 2016 tour.

The RFP document contains the outline of the Coordinator's position, and the process details for responding. Responses will be accepted until November 9th, 2015.

Festival Boardroom 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.
