CRW Directors set the strategic agenda for our club. The Board sets policy for club finances, rides, & donations. It appoints volunteers to fill important club officer positions & directs our activities with advocacy groups.

 

A great Director is someone who has been actively involved with the club & understands not only our history and traditions but has a vision for the future & is willing to help advocate and implement the changes necessary to move us forward.

 

Each year, CRW members elect 3 directors for a 3 year term. A director is allowed to serve no more than two consecutive 3 year terms.

 

Board of Directors meetings are held every one or two months, depending on topics to discuss. One of those meetings is anticipated to be an all-day planning meeting.
