The 2018 Annual General Meeting The 2017-2018 year was huge for LDTR. A lot of behind the scenes work went on to help improve the mountain biking scene at Lysterfield Park. None of this possible without the hard working volunteer committee for LDTR who put in countless hours to improve the park for everyone. Now we need some new faces to step up and help us continue the vision we've started. DATE: 20th of August at 7PM until approx 9pm. LOCATION: To be confirmed All positions for the committee in the 2018-2019 year are up for nomination. Anyone can nominate themselves to join the committee. Below are the posted positions up for nomination. To nominate for a position, please reply to this forum thread with the position your interested (having a forum account is essential to being on the committee). Multiple nominations for one position can occur, with the vote at the annual general meeting being who is decided to get the position.
FORUM THREAD LINK HERE: https://forum.lysterfieldmtb.com/index.php/topic,2183.0.html If you're not sure about joining the committee or are concerned about commitment, shoot us an email and we'll help clarify anything you might want to ask before you nominate. Nominations can be done through this forum (if you're unable to make it on the 20th August) or you can attend on the night and nominate. If you're choosing to attend on the night, it would be ideal to also post up on the forum beforehand. Why would you want to join the LDTR Committee? Volunteering as a committee member for LDTR not only brings value to the park and the club, but you'll end up finding a new perspective on the sport and your value in what it takes to make Lysterfield Park a great riding destination. You get to work alongside an enthusiastic bunch of local mountain bikers who all have a passion for wanting to see the mountain biking scene at Lysterfield Park grow. Joining the committee allows you to have a say. If you have an idea that you want to help with or drive, nominate for a position now. If you're educated or have any experience in the industry/sport or a role which can support the club, you can help add value to the trails you love to ride. Watch yours and others' ideas flourish into reality. You will get to learn the history of the park, the club, how we work with the land manager and other stakeholders. Joining the committee allows you to have more in depth knowledge around how processes are handled and why decisions are made by the club.
