Message from the Chair of the Ontario Cycling Association Board of Directors

Ontario Cycling Association Members,

On June 24, 2014 the Ontario Cycling Association held its Annual General Meeting in Toronto.

The main reasons for holding the meeting at this time are to ensure that the Association is able to return to the spring meeting date without unduly shortening any Director’s term and to present our 2013 year-end financial statements to the membership in a timely manner.

The AGM was attended by a number of members, some of whom raised a number of concerns on a variety of topics. The concerns were heard and noted by the Board and we look forward to fully addressing them in the near future. The two main points that were raised from the membership included increasing communication with the membership and also releasing more information about the OCA’s strategic plan. We will address these concerns as soon as possible. The board will be examining the effectiveness of our communications strategy, and more information on the OCA’s strategic plan will be posted on the website by the end of July.

The meeting approved minutes from the 2013 Special General Meeting and the 2013 AGM, received the Chair’s report (CLICK HERE), Treasurer’s report, approved the audited statements (CLICK HERE), appointed Norton & McMullen as Auditor’s, and conducted elections for three Director of the Board positions.

The board thanks all the candidates who ran in this election; it is great to see so much enthusiasm for our sport. From the election results, the board is pleased that the membership re-elected Malcolm Eade and Enrico Traini, and also elected Kyle Douglas. We welcome Kyle as our newest member, and look forward to working with him to ensure the future of cycling in Ontario remains bright.

Sincerely,

Emma Wiechula

Chair, Ontario Cycling Association Board of Directors
