Nominations Sought for Officer and Committee Positions at our 2019 AGM

Dublin Cycling Campaign (DCC) will hold its 2019 AGM on Saturday 21st September in The Tailors’ Hall, Back Lane, Dublin 8 (pictured above) and all DCC members will be invited to attend. The starting and finishing times and other details are still to be confirmed.

One of the main functions of the AGM is to elect a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer to lead the organisation for the next year. We will also elect other members of the Executive Committee to look after day-to-day activities of the Campaign.

All paid-up members of DCC are welcome to put themselves forward for election for any of these positions. Below you will see outlines of the four officer roles.

If you support the aims and work of Dublin Cycling Campaign, feel you would be a good candidate for one of these positions and would like to nominate yourself as a candidate (or persuade a friend to do so), we would love to hear from you. Please email us with a short statement (say, up to approx 200 words in length) explaining why you would like to put yourself forward and attach a short CV.
