Our longest serving Board Member Lauren LeClaire is stepping down this year so we are looking for candidates interested in being a part of the NEBRA Board. There are a total of three seats on the NEBRA Board of Directors up for election this cycle, and current Board members Colin Reuter and Mike Rowell are running for reelection. Interested candidates should send a candidate statement to board@nebra.us by 1/20. We will publish all statements here on the NEBRA website on 1/21. Members will receive voting instructions on 1/22, have until 1/29 to vote, and the results will be announced on 1/30. Remember that each NEBRA club gets one vote.

The NEBRA Board has seven directors who are elected for two year terms. Terms are staggered with 4 seats being elected this year, and three next year. Directors may serve for up to three consecutive two year terms.  Requirements for Board Members include participation in monthly conference calls and some limited in person meetings over the course of the year. As a USA Cycling contracted Local Association, all Board Members must pass a background check (paid for by NEBRA) and participate in the SafeSport education program (no charge).
