TBAG needs you to get involved!
Tempe Bicycle Action Group will have its first annual membership meeting on November 2nd from 3-5pm, at Boulders on Broadway. The meeting is open to all members, and because we don’t have membership fees, you’re all invited! If you have participated in TBAG events in the past, are on our email list, or are interested in participating in the future, we’d like to have you present at our annual meeting.
What happens at the annual meeting?
- First, we let you know what we’ve been doing for the past year and fill you in on plans for the coming one.
- Second, we solicit your opinions on the kinds of stuff TBAG should be doing. This is where you come in: we need ideas for the types of events y’all want to see in the coming year.
- The third task for the evening: we elect new board members!
The annual meeting is your chance to have appetizers on TBAG’s tab, have your say about the future of TBAG, and have an impact on cycling in Tempe and beyond.
Are you interested? Nominate yourself! Do you know someone who has great enthusiasm and time to commit to advocating for cycling? Nominate them for the TBAG board! All nominees will have a few moments during the annual meeting to introduce themselves to the group, after all present get to vote to determine the TBAG Board membership. Board members are elected for a 1-2 year term, during which you can help us organize events, coordinate the Tour de Fat (Oct 11th this year), and work with the city and others to help Tempe and surrounding communities to be as bike-friendly as possible. The TBAG board of directors is a working board, meaning that the board is responsible for, among other items, organizing events, maintaining the blog/website, keeping track of finances, and coordinating with other advocacy groups – we need people who are enthusiastic, creative and have time to commit to the cause.
To nominate yourself, write a short description of your qualifications for and interest in being on the TBAG Board and submit it to Stan at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 26th. To nominate someone else, tell Stan who you want to nominate and how to contact them.
We have 4 openings on the board, and we need more people to be involved! TBAG has financial resources to pull off all kinds of fun events; we just need your creativity, time and help.
