Hear ye, hear ye notice is hereby given that the MWCC AGM will be held on the 2nd February 2014 at 5pm at Market Lane Café. All positions on the committee will be up open for nomination.
The annual AGM will take place in order to provide a year in review with a report from the President and the Treasurer. There will be a general discussion on the status of the club and also any specific items of concern or interest.
The main item on the agenda is the discussion of the merging of the mountain bike club with the road cycling club. We acknowledge that a number of members currently ride both on the road and off road and this will bring a united front to the club. It is noted that the road cycling club is much larger and is much more financially viable than the mountain biking club. The clubs have recently run the National and State series of the cyclo cross series as a combined effort. The clubs have previously been united but split in 1999 due to differences in how the club should be run (refer to the club history page) With a growing presence of cycling on the beaches, a united front will also make it easier when committed with various government bodies.
All positions will be made vacant on the committee and all positions open to current club members for nomination.
This year we will be increasing the number of sub committee positions with each role having a specific role and requirements. We hope that by giving these roles specific objectives we can meet the needs of all of our members and make it easier for those that serve on the committee.
