FWRC Board of Directors Elections

This is a Call for Nominations for the Fort Worth Runners Club Board of Directors. There are 12 positions on the Board composed of six officers and six board members.

Every two years (odd years) the FWRC By-Laws require an election be held to elect new Board Members.  The officer positions are President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, 3rd Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer; and the other six positions are board member positions.

Nominations will be accepted from November 8, 2019 to November 24, 2019, Please submit your name via email to our Secretary Esther at erpez@att.net and 1st Vice President Olivia at oliviabalandran@yahoo.com

A list of nominees will be posted on the FWRC web site on November 28th.  Voting will take place via email from November 28, 2019, thru December 15, 2019, and voting in person on December 18, 2017 at the Annual Christmas Party.

The qualification for officer is to have been a member for at least one year by election day and for board members at least three months by election day.

Five of the current six Officers wish to remain on the Board so there is a need for one officer to serve as Secretary.  Four of the current Board members also want to continue serving on the Board, so there are two board positions that need to be filled.

So, what are the commitments of a Board Member?  The Officers have specific duties as stated in the By Laws and Board Members are there to assist with Club Runs.  All Board Members are required to attend monthly board meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm at the VFW on Old Denton Highway; assist at monthly club runs on a rotation and take on a monthly run as a race director once trained as a Race Director

So, if you have new ideas on how to improve the FWRC and want to give back to the running community then this is a good time to submit your name.  We need dedicated people to step up to the plate and help the FWRC provide great runs for our members and the DFW running/walking community,

As the first vice president of the FWRC I call on each member to consider giving back to the running community and moving your Club forward by seeking a position on the FWRC Board.

We know you may have questions pertaining to serving on the FWRC Board.  Our long time Board Member, and current President, Sam Balandran, will be happy to discuss any questions you may have about seeking a position on the FWRC Board.  Sam has been on the Board since 1993 (taking a break every couple of years). Sam can be reached at 817-455-0747.

Olivia Balandran
1st Vice President
