Default A Message from the PORC Board of Directors

Thank you to everyone that was able to make the meeting last night. The meeting ran little long and, at times, disorganized, but it was productive. Not as much because of the content of the meeting but for the conclusions drawn from it. We heard what you had to say and are working to address those items. There has been a barrage of texts this morning between board members with some great ideas being presented. Here are some of the things that we are sussing out and hope to present to the membership in the coming weeks:

-Develop committees for things like, trail maintenance, events, communications/marketing, so that general membership can get involved with some of the organizational functions of the club. This will also serve as a way to groom the future leaders of the club

-Hold regularly scheduled meetings and trail maintenance. Example: TMs on the 1st Saturday of odd months and meetings on the 1st Monday of even months. Again, this is only an example and is subject to change; the important thing is that these things will be regularly scheduled at predictable intervals, so you know EXACTLY when the next TM or club meeting will be

-Communications!!! We will strive to be more transparent with the functions of the club. The preliminary thought is to create a communications/marketing committee who's responsibility is to relay, promote, and gather feedback on club business and events.

Ok, so here is what we need from you in return. In the coming weeks we will be presenting plans and asking for you to join and help out with a committee. The more commitment we have from you, the more the load of work gets spread out and the less any one member has to do. Please, sign up to help. As discussed last night, as IMBA members, each one of you has committed to 20 hours per year of service to help the club. We currently have almost 100 members, imagine the outcomes we would see if 100 people helped with 1 something throughout the year!! Immaculately maintained trails, beautiful and informative trail signage, events and group rides that are more like festivals than what we have now.

Stay tuned and step up!
