The Union is seeking new board members
Are you interested in making Boston the bike-friendliest city in the nation? Do you have the skills needed to help continue the Boston Cyclists Union’s role as a major catalyst of that change? If so, the board of directors is looking for you.
The Union’s board is comprised of a diversity of talented people; young, old, experienced and new. If you believe have a valuable perspective to add, some relevant experience, and can commit to spending some time each week helping us improve the Union, you are eligible and encouraged to apply.
2013 will be an amazing year for the Union, and this winter the board will be crafting a strategic plan. Board members meet once a month and are also expected to participate in at least one committee and take part in the Union’s programs. Board members help carry out research, organize events, and do other tasks like keeping the Union’s finances in order (with the help of accountants and other consultants), fundraising (including a personal donation), volunteer wrangling, and networking with communities all over Boston.
If you apply, be sure to make the deadline of Sunday, July 15 2012, and don’t forget to highlight experience you have in any of the following areas:
Planning or engineering
Finance and Accounting
Graphic Design, photography, videography, editing, writing, and other creative fields
Non-profit or Business management
While on-line applications are preferred, applications can also be mailed to Boston Cyclists Union, P.O. Box 301394, Jamaica Plain, MA (United States)
Application Deadline: July 15, 2012.
The Boston Cyclists Union strives to represent the communities of Boston in all their diversity. Women, people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and people from all Boston neighborhoods are encouraged to apply.
Our Mission: The Boston Cyclists Union is helping Bostonians lead healthier lives by promoting the bicycle for transportation. Among other things, we repair bikes, educate new riders, and organize neighborhood residents who would like to voice support for friendlier street designs, bike paths, and public spaces. The Union is growing in all ways — the number of projects we’re working on, volunteer opportunities, and more.
