Director Elections

The period to nominate Board of Director candidates closed on February 16, 2018.  

The Board of Directors, in accordance with Cycle Toronto’s Board Talent Plan, is committed to recruiting, nominating, and supporting skilled candidates for the Board that reflect the diversity of our membership and Toronto at large. Cycle Toronto encourages Board applications from women, racialized people, persons with disabilities, members who live outside of the downtown core, and members of Toronto’s Indigenous, LGBTQ+, cultural, religious, and linguistic communities. 

This year one of our priorities is to elect a new treasurer. In addition, we are looking for individuals with the following qualifications, skills, and experience: 

  • Finance / Accounting
  • IT
  • Fundraising
  • Senior Management/ Executive Experience

Nevertheless, diligent, enthusiastic, and committed members without these particular qualifications are welcome and encouraged to submit a nomination. 

For more information, please see our Call for nominees

To submit an application, please fill out our on-line Nomination Form.

Note that the By-laws govern the conduct of the AGM generally, including member proposals. For questions relating to the By-laws please contact the Board's President, brandin.oconnor@cycleto.ca.

 

Dutch Auction

Every year at our AGM, we do an entertaining fundraiser called a Dutch Auction to support and expand our work. 

How does this work? 

In a Dutch Auction, bids start high and decrease over the course of the event, allowing everyone to donate at a level that's comfortable for them. This year, we'll have merchandise incentives to encourage those who can donate to give generously.

The best part? If fundraising targets are met, AGM attendees get to witness our Executive Director, Jared Kolb, do a funny/embarassing stunt. Past year's stunts have included Jared dying his hair Cycle Toronto-brand orange, riding his bike into Lake Ontario, and dressing up in a raccoon suit.

 

Cycle Toronto's AGM is a members-only event. Our ongoing advocacy efforts are not possible without you! You can join us or renew your membership online beforehand, or at the door.
