The CYCT member, or member couple, who occupies the Membership Chair position, is a member of the Board of Trustees, the governing body of CYCT. Since the beginning of 2015 the club has been without a Membership Chair and so the Board as a whole has taken over membership responsibilities.
Article VI, Section 10, of the by-laws, on page, 4, gives the complete and official description of the responsibilities of the Membership Chair and you can access the by-laws here.
The Membership Chair is responsible for recruiting new members and retaining existing members. Realistically, this means following up with people who have expressed an interest in CYCT, looking for ways to get the word out about our club and especially helping prospective members though the joining possess. You’ll help prospective members with everything from filling out a membership application to being inducted as a new member at a general meeting. Each new member receives a binder of information and a CYCT burgee, you’ll be responsible for ensuring those items are available to new members as well. Traditionally, the Membership Chair has also conducted the raffle that takes place at general meetings.
This is a great position, and a fun position, for anyone who’s outgoing and at least somewhat organized. The Membership Chair brings you into the inner circle of CYCT, you’ll meet lots of people and really get a sense for our great club.
As the new Membership Chair you will not be alone! The Past Membership Chair will be right by your side as will every member of the Board.
