Committee – 21 / 22

We seem to be making a habit of having our AGM while in lockdown! Thanks to the wonders of Zoom we were able to hold the AGM on Monday, July 19. A little earlier in the year than in the past, but it made sense to change the date, so the new committee is on board ready for the start of Crit Season in October.

With 11 weeks until Crit season starts, we are pleased to announce we will open the season with a Pride round, to celebrate and recognise diversity within our club and community. We are also very happy to have appointed our first ever Diversity and Inclusion Ambassador to the committee with Alex Smyth taking on the role. Also, joining the committee is Jerri Zhao. Jerri has taken on the role of our first ever Female Development Manager as well as taking over marketing from James Shepherdson.

From the AGM, we are delighted to award Life Membership to a female member for the very first time. Linda Hunter has been awarded Life Membership of the club for her tireless efforts behind the scenes as a club administrator and now our first ever female president.

There are still several positions on the Committee we would dearly like to fill, namely:

Social Media Manager- do you have a passion for social media and are interested in volunteering your time to the club?

Partnership Manager- are you good at grant applications, confident in talking to businesses about partnering with the club?

Marshal Coordinator- organisation of all marshals on race days.

Equipment Manager- Linda would love for a few people to go on a roster to take over driving the van to Glenvale and Sandown.

Social Coordinator- coordinating club social events.

If you are interested in one of these volunteer positions and would like further details, please email the secretary@carnegiecycling.com.au.


Committee – 20 / 21

On Monday the 9th of November the Club held its Annual General Meeting on Zoom. It is with great pleasure that the Committee can announce the appointment of Linda Hunter as the new Club President. This is the first time in the Clubs 96 year history that we have a female president, so congratulations to Linda on breaking this ground. Linda has been a tireless worker for the Club over many years, particularly in her role as secretary and it is fabulous to see her stepping up and setting a great example.

The committee would like to make special mention of outgoing President Sal Cinque for the all of the fabulous work he has done over the last two years, leaving the Club in a very strong and stable position. We are very pleased he will be staying on to drive Partnerships within the Club. At the meeting the committee agreed on the following strategic priorities:

• Return to racing
• Junior program development
• Women’s program development
• Packer Park clubhouse development
• Social and training rides

Plans are well under way for a safe return to racing and we hope to have more to announce on this very soon. It has been a very challenging year for many people and we hope all our members are safe and well. We are looking forward to a big 2021 and look forward to seeing you all on the road and at the track!
