EWCC is run by its members on a voluntary basis – everyone can contribute to our active community. Don’t be put off by the words “governance” and “committee” – EWCC only exists because of all of us, and it needs people to organise stuff and ride together. 🙂
Here is a link to the EWCC constitution as approved by British Cycling in 2015.
The club is governed by a committee that is elected at the annual general meeting. The committee has responsibility for the management of the Club, its funds, property and affairs.
The club committee meetings are open to all club members – everybody is encouraged to come along on every second Monday of the month at 7.30 pm to discuss and agree on any activities affecting the club, such as as road races, time trials, audaxes, EWCC academy items, social event organisation, membership applications, finances, provision of training and coaching sessions, British Cycling matters, and any other item that’s currently a hot topic for the club members.
The standard agenda is shown below, and the venue will be announced on facebook closer to the day depending on availability.
|1||Apologies for absence|
|2||Approval of the minutes from previous meeting|
|3||Matters arising (from the above)|
|7||CTT (time trials) report|
|8||BC (road race) report|
|10||Date of next meeting|
|11||AOB (any other business)*|
- The members will elect a committee including a chair, treasurer and secretary to serve until the next AGM;

- The committee will present a report on the club’s activities since the previous AGM;
- The members will appoint a suitable person to audit the accounts;
- The members will discuss and vote on any resolution (whether about policy or to change the rules) and deal with any other business put to the meeting.
In order to maintain the safety and well-being of all club members, the club is required to appoint a welfare officer who has undergone an enhanced DBS check through British Cycling and has attended relevant safeguarding training. The club’s welfare officer is Nik Rorke and she can be contacted by email: .
