Other Frequently Asked Questions

How were the 2023 board candidates selected?

Bike East Bay called for applications to the Board of Directors in Fall 2022 and received a number of board applications. Members of the Governance Committee interviewed each applicant and then narrowed down to a candidate slate based on their skills and ability to contribute to ongoing board work, particularly fundraising, strategic planning, and equity. The Board of Directors approved this slate of candidates to go before members for a vote at the March 2023 Member Meeting.

How many board members are there?

Bike East Bay bylaws stipulate there may be up to 17 board members. If members approve this slate of candidates, Bike East Bay’s board will have 13 members and four open slots. The board is retaining these open slots in order to continue our search for a diverse and representative board in 2023.

How does voting work?

All current Bike East Bay members are eligible to vote for the candidate slate. Attend the 2021 Bike East Bay member meeting on Thursday February 4 to meet the candidates and cast your vote. The meeting will be conducted electronically via Zoom. You may vote “yay,” “nay,” or abstain from voting. We will vote electronically using a voting tool in order to record and verify votes. A quorum of 1% of the membership is needed to conduct the vote, and a majority vote passes.
