2008 EBBC Board Elections

Interested in getting more involved with EBBC? Do you have some bicycle issues that you would like to promote with the EBBC? Serving as a board member of EBBC for 2008 would enable you to further your bicycle interests, and promote bicycling in the East Bay. The board meets every other month before the regular meeting, plus one retreat in January. The election of the eleven board members will take place at the November 20th meeting. The nominating committee is currently working on a list of prospective board members for next year. A copy of the EBBC bylaws is available upon request.

EBBC Webserver Training Session

The EBBC has implemented a new "Content Management System" on the webserver. This allows for upload of multimedia content, such as image galleries, video, and pdf files. There is also an online Events calendar, blogging, and other capabilities for collaboration.

This training session will show you how to take advantage of these new capabilities. It is open to all EBBC members, and no prior experience with web programming is required. However, you will need to bring a laptop computer in order to fully participate.

Introducing the new ebbc.org

Introducing the New www.ebbc.org

Do you have digital photos of a really great bike ride you'd like to share? Or perhaps you are involved in your local BPAC and need to announce upcoming events and meetings ?

Previously, it was difficult sharing this type of information. The ebbc-talk listserv does not allow multimedia attachments (to protect against virus infection). And submitting material for publication in the newsletter and website involved an often complicated process of sending material to the EBBC website administrator, and to the rideOn editor.
