From: Steve Johnson, CEO USA Cycling
The 2009 election process is about to get underway, and you will soon have the opportunity to elect trustees to the various Boards of Trustees that make up the political structure of USA Cycling. Information concerning elections is available on the USA Cycling website. Nomination notices are posted and must be returned to USA Cycling by July 1. The following positions are up for re-election:
USCF – 1 Eastern Trustee, 1 Central Trustee, 1 Western Trustee
NORBA – 1 Industry Trustee, 1 Organizer Trustee
NCCA – 2 At-Large Trustees
To vote for trustees for the various Boards, voters must hold a current corresponding license. Thus, holders of domestic MTB licenses can vote for the NORBA trustees. All members holding domestic road and track licenses can vote in the USCF election with the restriction that licensees vote for candidates running in their geographic section. Holders of USA Cycling International licenses (not USPRO) can vote in both the NORBA and USCF elections.
The elections will take place online through your My USA Cycling account. Be sure to vote online, starting July 15. The election ends on August 15. If you want to use a paper ballot instead, you may request one by writing or calling USA Cycling:
Technical Director, USA Cycling
210 USA Cycling Point, Suite 100
Colorado Springs, CO
We encourage you to participate as a nominee or voter in these elections. This is your opportunity to participate in the governance of USA Cycling through the election of your representatives to the Trustee boards. Thank you.
Steve Johnson, CEO
I would encourage everyone who is a USA Cycling member to nominate and vote for candidates of their choice.
(And word on the street is that Michael Hernandez, one of the biggest supporters of women’s cycling & racing that I personally know is thinking of running. I think Michael Hernandez would be an awesome representative.)
