December 05, 2016 (Vancouver, BC) – The past year has been an excellent one for our organization. We set specific goals around financial stability, growth in membership, and enhanced sport development. We ended the year with revenue higher than targeted and expenses lower than budgeted without any significant changes to programming.
Despite the excellent results of 2016, I have tendered my resignation with the Board of Directors.
Like most changes in life, this is not due to any one thing, but a combination of what I’ve learned this past year about myself and Cycling BC. I’m proud of the accomplishments the front office team has been able to achieve this year, and I’d like to believe I’ve been able to help them articulate their objectives and empowered them to achieve their goals. However, I think more could be done from the desk of the Executive Director to facilitate targeted growth in the sport. I’m convinced it’s in the best interest of both Cycling BC and myself for me to step down and for the organization to locate a business leader who is both passionate and knowledgeable about the competitive sport of cycling.
The board of directors is now in the process of actively recruiting candidates to take on the role of Executive Director in the new year. Cover letter and resume should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the interim, Erin Waugh will be taking on the role of Acting Executive Director. Erin has emerged as a leader among the team this past year as Finance and Admin Manager, and has worked closely with me and each of our colleagues on Cycling BC’s plans for the coming year. I am confident that together Erin and Richard Wooles, Senior Director of Sport Development, will ensure a smooth transition and the continued success of Cycling BC’s programs and activities.
