Last week, the KCA elected four new members to the board in addition to the dedicated folks staying on for another term. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be highlighting them starting with….
Name: Doug Campbell
KCA Position: President/Treasurer
I became hooked on bike racing in Kansas in 2013 when I tried my first road and cyclocross races. As much as the events themselves I was drawn to our bike racing community. There have been many exceptional individuals who have contributed to creating this welcoming community, and my hope is to keep it moving forward. We’ve encountered a number of headwinds the past several years but I’m optimistic our new board can help facilitate a rebound after a couple of difficult years. All of us would like to see more events on the calendar and more racers enjoying them!
The KCA Annual Meeting will be held via Zoom on Thursday, January 13 at 7pm, and is open to any interested KCA member. If you would like to attend please email Doug Campbell at email@example.com and he will send you a Zoom link.
Interested in helping to reinvigorate bike racing in our area? Elections for the KCA Board of Directors are coming up!
Nominations for the Board are due by January 3, 2022. Each nominee should submit by the 3rd a brief write-up about themselves and their interest in the Board. All current Board members who wish to remain on the Board will be included in the election process. A list of nominees along with their write-ups will be emailed to club presidents for voting. Votes from each club in good standing may be made during the annual meeting to be held via zoom at 7pm on January 13, but we would prefer to accumulate votes in the 10-day period prior to the meeting. Requirements for a club to be considered “in good standing” are listed in the KCA bylaws posted under “About KCA” above. (The race promotion requirement will include 2019 due to COVID disruptions.)
Per KCA Bylaws, the Board may have from 5-9 Directors. Members are elected to serve two-year terms, with no term limits. Once the Board is elected, the new Directors will appoint officers. Officers may consist of a President, Treasurer, Equipment Coordinator, Media and Communications Coordinator, Race Calendar Coordinator, Junior Coordinator, Official’s Coordinator, and State Championships and Series Coordinator. In the past there have also been an Upgrade Coordinator and a Permits Coordinator, but USAC is currently fulfilling those roles. Directors may hold more than one office. If nominees have a strong interest in a specific office, they may want to note it in their submission.
