Board Candidate Statement from Joseph Rodrigues
January 7, 2019

Hello, my name is Joseph Rodrigues and I am writing today to formally announce my candidacy for my board seat at NEBRA.

I began my cycling career as a category 5 racer in 1998.  Although my involvement in the sport was relatively late in life, I was immediately hooked.  I joined my local cycling team/club and became an active member, having served on the board and assisting in operations for the past 18 years.  This includes what I consider to be the most vital part of our sport: promoting races. During this time, my participation in promoting road races, criterium, and cyclocross events has given me a variety of perspectives into our sport.  I have come to appreciate the hard work, financial constraints, and safety issues that race directors are forced to consider in promoting cycling events.

Since NEBRA depends on the voluntary participation of its board members, the members are vital to its success.   I have no doubt that my energy, leadership and spirit of collaboration as a board member can ignite NEBRA’s potential.

I humbly request your consideration and support.


Joseph Rodrigues
