Support the club: Volunteer!
The Mount Baker Bicycle Club is a 100% volunteer-operated club. All of our events, projects, rides, services, community activities etc. happen due to the efforts of volunteer club members. For the club to function and to continue functioning, we depend on new volunteers stepping up every year.
We often have specific events we need help with, and we always need people to support ongoing club projects. Take a look at our current needs and contact our volunteer coordinator Carol Spano (email@example.com) if you can help out!
The MBBC board has a number of members who have served for many years. Some of them will be stepping back at the end of 2019. The club is therefore looking for new board members, and specifically for people who are willing to take on some of the club's more critical roles.
The following positions will be vacated as of the beginning of January 2020. Current board members will fill these roles until then, but it would be most advantageous if new board members could step in early, thereby getting some guidance and training from existing board members this year.
Duties of the President include (but are not limited to):
- Planning, calling, and leading board meetings
- Overseeing various club initiatives and projects by checking on status, ensuring projects are being managed
- Represents MBBC with partner clubs
- Represents MBBC to sponsors
- Represents MBBC with the city
