The club has the following immediate needs for managing the club (These are non-voting position however all are eligible for VIP points):
Contact your local ride leader, cluster leader or a member of the Board of Trustees.
Cincinnati Cycle Club is a 100% volunteer supported organization. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the club, supporting everything from leading our regularly scheduled rides, to supporting a major event like the Chili Ride, to participating on the Board of Trustees. The club thrives on the energy and passion of our volunteers. To recognize and encourage volunteering the club has a Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP). Now, volunteering can be fun and now it can be rewarding!
The goal of the program is not only to reward our current volunteers, but also to encourage new volunteers to start new rides, volunteer to support events or host social events, and to help run the club. Besides having fun supporting your club, you now have the chance to earn points which can be used for club merchandise.
So here's how the VIP program works. Every time you volunteer for an event you get points (points vary by type of activity)
Your points will accrue throughout the year. This year, the points will accrue from April 1 through October 31st. At the end of this period you can cash in your points on club merchandise or donate the cash value to a new fund that has been established to allow the club to support advocacy activities. All rewards will then be distributed at the club's Annual Dinner.
In support of the VIP, that club has developed a collection of club merchandise. Merchandise ranges from a club-branded water bottle to t-shirts, to sweatshirts, to a jersey to a wind jacket. 2014 Club memberships are also available as part of the merchandise collection. All merchandise has been assigned a point value. VIP points are used to purchase club merchandise.
