After careful consideration and lengthy yet fruitful debate, the Executive Committee is very pleased and excited to announce the that following individuals have accepted appointments to the leadership of the club:
VP - Treasurer - Jody Patterson - Jody is a fairly new member of the club, and an active Mad Dog and Randonneur. She comes to the role with over a decade of experience in the bookkeeping and accounting world, along with a familiarity with the bookkeeping software the club uses.
VP of Touring - Charlie Drexler - An LBC member off and on since 1991, Charlie brings a fresh perspective to the role along with significant experience in the professional world where his experience will come in handy with the organization and forward progress of the club's Touring agenda.
President - Andy Murphy - Andy's enthusiasm and spirit for the club are well-known and recognized by anyone who has ridden with him. We also recognize that it is important to honor the recommendation we heard from the attendees at the last general meeting. There are many hefty challenges ahead for all of us, and Andy will no doubt have his share of fence mending to do. We trust that his many good qualities, for which he was first elected to this office, will see him and the club though the work ahead.
Touring Committee - The ExCom felt that it was unfair to the new VP of Touring to appoint the entire committee without involving the newly-appointed officer in the selection process. Therefore, we are going to wait a couple weeks before finalizing those appointments. The plan to build a structured committee of riders to help build the touring vision for the future remains very important to the ExCom.
The restored ExCom will be meeting for the first time this weekend to continue the missions we set forth at the last general membership meeting. We will provide updates as the news warrants. The e-mail links and contact information on the club site will be redirected to the proper folks at that time as well.
Thanks to all of the club members who stepped forward and applied for the available roles! We were really pleased with the applicants, which made the process a little tougher, but very satisfying.
Also, we owe a great deal of thanks to the members of the club who have been so patient and supportive while the ExCom worked through these transitions.
Your Executive Committee
