Volunteers Needed - BCP Needs Your Help

Social Chair Needed

Friends, BCP schedules many enjoyable and informative social events throughout the year, e.g., the Awards Banquet, the Travelogue, the Non-Profit Fair, seminars, tailgate parties, etc. We need a SOCIAL CHAIR to help plan and organize these satisfying events on the calendar. If you are interested in helping to organize some of the social events for our club, please contact Linda McGrane (267-251-7862 or mcgrane_linda_a@yahoo.com). These worthwhile events, cannot take place without someone to plan and organize them. If you are able to help BCP, THANK YOU for volunteering!

There are several other opportunities to help BCP. Remember, BCP is an all volunteer organization. If you would like further information about any of the opportunities listed below, please contact any of the officers or board members for additional details. http://phillybikeclub.org/newbcp/members/board

The Board of Directors discusses the major issues which affect our club, and makes the administrative and policy decisions which guide our club forward as the largest cycling club in the Greater Philadelphia region. The Board meets once a month, for 10 meetings for year. BCP's Bylaws, which are available on the website, provide additional information on how the Board of Directors functions.
