Board of Directors

A lot takes place behind the scene to make a bicycle club run smoothly. The NHCC has a Board of Directors for 2020 comprised of 6 fabulously dedicated volunteers who hold meetings periodically in order to conduct new business for the NHCC. Directors are elected by the membership at General Meetings, typically the Annual General Meeting. However, all members of the NHCC are encouraged to take part in planning and organizing activities by approaching any board member to discuss ideas, brainstorms, and anything else that might improve the NHCC.

Becoming a Director
If you are a member in good standing, and want to take a more active role in shaping the Club, why not consider submitting your name to the Nomination Committee for a future position on the Board? There’s no obligation by submitting your name, and you won’t be automatically elected. It simply means that you’d like to talk about the possibilities! If you think you might like to explore it further, please let our secretary know that you might be interested by sending an email to
