Volunteers are needed for the race. The morning is a great experience for club volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, contact Brian Flowers.
Seeking Board Members!
As we approach December and our 2013 General Membership Meeting, we are looking to you, our members, to solicit your interest in helping BRRC in a unique way, by serving on our Board of Directors or as an Officer. According to the BRRC By Laws, "The Board of Directors shall manage the affairs of the Club between Club meetings, shall dete
rmine the agenda for Club meetings, shall plan Club functions, and shall do all things necessary to maintain the Club as an ongoing organization."
Beyond this general description, we are looking for Directors who can help manage key aspects of the Club, including communications (e.g. website, newsletters), accounting, membership, race directing, and event planning. We know that many of you have specialized capabilities that can help BRRC be successful. Please share your expertise with your fellow runners!
The rewards of helping to lead this organization are many, most importantly knowing that you are helping BRRC grow and thrive.
To learn more or to place your name on the ballot for December's meeting and the election of 2014 Officers and Directors, contact us.
We look forward to your participation.
