A lot takes place behind the scene to make a bicycle club run smoothly. The NHCC has a Board of Directors 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.
