    Every September the Team Alameda Board issues a "Call for Candidates". This is that "Call".

    This means is that we are looking for volunteers to help run the organization for a term of two years.  If you have given thought to giving back to Team Alameda, or to helping TA improve our club, this is a great way to do that -- and a perfect time to get involved at a new level.  We are looking for experienced individuals, perhaps Ride Leaders, or those that can offer special managerial or technical skills, although candidacy is open to all members.

    Directors are elected for a 2-year period.  Approximately half of our Directors' 2-year term ends each year.  Some will run again, others will not.  We have found a replacement for our Secretary who is Zoraida “Z” McNulty and have a candidate for Membership, Michael Castro.  However, more volunteers can step in, and anybody is invited to sit in at our monthly Board meeting as our welcome guest to see what duties we perform.

    If you are interested, or if you have questions, please contact any of our current Directors. Their email addresses are listed under the “About Us” tab, then under “Board of Directors” on our website.  

    The nominating period (read volunteer period) is now open and will close on September 30th.

    The slate of new candidates shall be presented to the Board at its regular October meeting.

    If the number of candidates is equal to or less than the number of open seats at the time the nominating period closes (September 30th), all available candidates shall be deemed elected and such result shall be published to the membership without undue delay.

    Should there be more candidates than there are open Director seats, the following election process will be followed:

    • 1.    Voting shall be conducted electronically, with voting instructions e-mailed to all members and posted in an appropriate "members only" section of the website no later than October 15th
    • 2.    Voting shall take place during the period October 21 - 27 and the results shall be published to the membership no later than October 31st  of each year

    Specific positions and functions for each Director shall be decided by the Board each January at its regular business meeting, at which time the Board also shall elect its officers for the year (refer to Article V of the Team Alameda By-Laws on page 6).

    Hey all - I received this message from Gene Oh, founding member of Team Alameda and owner of Alameda Bicycles, and thought I would pass it along in full.  Thanks, and here's hoping we can pull a team together for the event and also have some members volunteer as well:

    ********************************************************************

    Hello Everyone!

    It was good seeing many of you at the Team Alameda picnic on Sunday.  As many of you know, Team Alameda has been a founding member of Alameda Bike for the Parks since its inception in 2016.  Together, our 3 annual rides have exposed thousands to the Alameda that is only seen and felt by bike, raising new bike advocates to help support increased bikeways and bike-friendly access.

    We've also raised over $80,000 for the parks, and this year our goal is to raise $35,000 and have over 600 riders.  I'm asking for each of you to help make our 4th annual Alameda Bike for the Parks the best yet.  How can you help?  Glad you asked:

    - Become a route volunteer.  You'll play an active role in making this event special with your hoots, hollars, cow bells.  We need 15-20 volunteers throughout the perimeter of Alameda, Bayfarm, and Naval Base.

    - Build a team and ride the event.  My vision is a "Bay to Breakers" on wheels, where riders dress up themselves and their bikes in all sorts of craziness.  Our Team Challenge is easy to join (6 or more makes a team), it's free (beyond the entry fee) and we give out plaques and publicity for Team Spirit (largest team) and Team Flair (most decorated).  Form a team and help bring some fun to the event!

    - Spread the word.  Our Facebook page has updates, the webpage has general and registration info.  It's only $45 for ride, DriFit jersey, hotdog lunch, and after-party (only $20 for those under 16).  I also have an email template to forward to friends if you're willing to share.  Please help!

    Either way you help, I hope to see all of you there... Alameda Bicycle will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary at the after-party by sharing free ice-cream and beer (yes, I said beer, shoulda led the email with that, huh?)

    Thanks all, Gene

    Owner, Alameda Bicycle

    With the new email address for submitting the Ride Sheets: 

     mailto:ridesheets@teamalameda.com

    a new version has been created.  This form also reflects the recent change in pace classifications and includes a new tick box for whenever an Incident Report may be anticipated.  To make certain the Board receives such Incident Reports on a timely basis, a new 24-hour rule comes into effect.  Thankfully, we are a safe club and such injuries, crashes and collisions are rare.

    These Sign-In Sheets come in three versions, as found under the "Ride Leader" tab:

    1. As a pdf for the regular rides, the simplest way to print out a blank sheet when participants are not known in advance
    2. In Excel, designed for our Tuesday/Thursday rides or whenever you wish to enter known names in advance, which saves time for the actual signing in
    3. Also for our Tuesday/Thursday rides as a pdf, with known riders entered in advance

    The Excel file can be edited of course, so please alert the Board whenever changes to the names or phone numbers should occur and our Webmaster will endeavor to update it and the associated pdf. 

    Please do not forget to check "Yes" or "No" under Incident Report when you send in your scanned sheet after the ride.  This will show our club is mindful of our obligations and makes it easy to match any Incident Report to a particular ride. 

    It is good practice for Ride Leaders to carry a copy of the Incident Report with them, as details, such as insurance information, are much easier to obtain on scene rather than after the ride.

    For any questions, please contact our Ride Leader Coordinator.
