Bob Giordano of Free Cycles will speak at our Fall MBC Members' virtual Meeting, via Google Meet, the evening of Wednesday, October 28, 2020 on the subject of "End-of-Season Bicycle Maintenance." The meeting will begin at 6:30 with the Virtual Meet open by 6:15.
Bob is the Director at Free Cycles Missoula and the Missoula Institute for Sustainable Transportation (MIST). Both programs work to get more people walking, biking and using public transit, while reducing the need and desire to drive. Since 1996, Free Cycles has helped thousands of Missoulians learn how to repair and maintain their pedal powered machines. Join Bob and MBC to learn some simple tips to keep a bicycle running well all year long!
In addition to this informative presentation, MBC members will be voting to elect Board Members for the 2020-2021 term. We must have a minimum of 5 Board Members and may have up to 11. We'd love to receive your self-nomination to the board to fill in our vacant positions, to help improve our outreach to prospective members during the next year. To make any nominations for our Board of Directors, including self-nominations, please contact, June Siple.
We currently have the following nominees for Board of Director memberships:
- Carl Ammons (current Vice President)
- John Battaglia (new nominee)
- Jan Grant (current Secretary)
- Jack Scholl (current Board Member)
- June Siple (current President)
- Bob Wachtel (current Treasrurer and Webmaster)
Carl Ammons has accepted nomination for election as president at next month's Board of Directors meeting. By the way, he's a great guy, very experienced cyclist, and full of enthusiasm for MBC! Other officer nominations will be confirmed after the October 28 meeting.
Only club members may vote, and anyone who is willing to join now to get a current membership may also vote in the MBC election. (However, please be aware that current memberships expire on Dec. 31, 2020.) Starting in December you may join or renew your memberships for the 2021 season on our membership page.
