Join the Cycle Sheffield committee

We’re looking for people to join our organising committee and help us in our campaign for a more cycle-friendly Sheffield. You don’t have to be a ‘cycling expert’; you just need to have an interest and a desire to change things.

The formal committee roles are –

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Membership Secretary

  • Trustee

We may also elect a Chair at the AGM

and Matt Turner is standing again as Chair

The committee can be 9 in all and other roles can be negotiated (e.g Can you help us organise events/socials? Grow our membership? Assist with our campaigns?)

The committee meets once a month and all committee meetings are open to all members and any member can join in with campaigning.

Please forward any nominations to us by email or speak to one of the committee members if you’re interested.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the AGM.

Item 4.3 Proposed subs

It is proposed that members subs will be as below for Sep 1 2015 – 31 Aug 2016.

  • CycleSheffield minimum subs if paid/renewed by standing order are £4 (concessions), £6 (individual), £8 (household). NB no change

  • CycleSheffield minimum subs if paid/renewed in cash at a CycleSheffield meeting or stall event are £4, £6, £8. NB no change

  • CycleSheffield minimum subs if paid/renewed by cheque or PayPal are £5, £7, £9. NB £1 pa rise for all types of members.  Cash and standing orders are cheaper and easier to process.

  • CycleSheffield subs if paid for new members at a stall event are £4 (concessions), £5 (individual or family)  – maintaining our one-off offer for newly recruited members at fairs and events which has been very successful.

  • Members are encouraged to pay more than the minimum and that will depend on the value they attach to CycleSheffield and their means.  We sincerely thank all members who have taken the opportunity to voluntarily increase their sub over the past year.
