Nominations Open for Cycling Canada Board Positions
Cycling Canada is pleased to announce the opening of the annual nomination process for positions on its Board of Directors.
The Cycling Canada Board of Directors is elected by Cycling Canada’s members (Provincial & Territorial Cycling Associations) and is comprised of 7 Director-at-Large positions, a National Team Athlete representative plus one optional Director appointed at the discretion of the Board.
The role of Cycling Canada’s Board of Directors is to provide overall strategic direction, leadership and stability for the organization. The Board establishes the overall mission and purpose for the organization and is responsible for a number of key governance-related activities including approving the appointment of (and providing direction to) the CEO and senior management team, the development and adoption of organizational policies, financial oversight and approval of the annual budget.
Board members meet by teleconference once per month, meet in-person twice per year and are also expected to participate on Board committees on a regular basis. Cycling Canada is looking to build upon the expertise within its existing Board and is seeking to include a range of diverse voices and skills that will enable the growth and development of our organization and our sport in Canada.
For the upcoming September 2021 elections, the Nominations Committee is seeking nominees with diverse backgrounds and perspectives who bring the following skill sets, competencies and considerations, as established as priorities for the organization:
· Financial Acumen / Accounting Expertise
· Business Development / Commercial Expertise
· Governance / Policy Expertise
Ideally, candidates will also have corporate or non-profit board experience.
In 2021 there are four (4) Director-at-Large positions open for nomination, each for two-year terms. Board elections will occur at the Cycling Canada Annual Meeting to be held by conference call on September 28, 2021. Nominations for these Board positions will close August 27th, 2021, one calendar month prior to the date of the Annual Meeting.
