I know what you are thinking. “I do not have the time to read a 25-page document.” Well, you might want to take a look at this one. If you have a valid USAC license and live in MO, race for a club or team, and/or are a race director or promoter I would pay close attention to the sections pertaining to membership, voting, BAR, and event scheduling. There have been some changes to the way we have facilitated these procedures in the past.
Monday, September 8, 2014, at the monthly MOBRA meeting, the FINAL by-laws will be submitted and there will be a NO or YES approval vote taken. Last month, the board and MOBRA membership in attendance went through the draft and made changes and approved the changes. September’s vote is for making them LAW. After it is approved, the voting members can amend the document later. Or if it isn’t approved then we will have to make the changes and try the vote again. As it stands, the way we vote currently, is ONE member from a team/club votes. It is hard to use attendance at these meetings as a barometer to gauge YOUR interest level simply because not many people attend. WE HAVE TO CHANGE THIS! Positive change is happening. Please show an interest and be a part of it. Come to the meetings. Share your voice and let’s continue to grow cycling and racing in MO together. I would suggest reading the by-laws here or printing a copy and let your club/team Rep know how you feel so they can come to the meeting and vote. Thank you for your involvement.
