As required by the constitution, nominations are now open for our officer roles of Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Vice Chair. These four main officer roles are subject to an election process if there is more than one person standing for the same position. You must be a member of the PCF to be able to stand for any of them. The winner will be decided by a straight majority of members in attendance at the AGM.
2020 saw quite a lot of demand on the committee’s time as various issues required fast detailed feedback or response. We are also looking to expand the pool of people on the committee to help share the workload and spread the knowledge of issues around the city, as well as looking to establish a network of local area ‘champions’ across the city.
The main contact point of the forum, who has a clear sense of what is needed and where resources should be utilised. There will be some interaction with both written and broadcast media as well as an expectation to act as a liaison with council officers and politicians when necessary. A good knowledge of the issues around cycling and experience of campaigning would also be a benefit.
A predominantly administrative role that involves ensuring that minutes are taken in committee meetings and some general organisation of committee business such as confirming meeting details and locations.
As the title would suggest, the holder of the purse strings and the person who keeps an eye on the levels of finance required to carry out the actions from committee. Would also need to act as signatory for the bank account.
To deputise for the Chair when necessary but also has scope to take on specific projects as required to help progress the work of the Forum.
If you wish to become more involved with our work but are not sure what is involved then joining the committee is a good way to discover the scope of the campaign and perhaps then specialise in an area of interest. We would particularly welcome members who have experience of setting up events or group rides, press & media experience or an interest in the planning system.
Local Area Champions
To act as a contact point for two-way information flow of information for specific areas of the city, acting as a lower level of regular engagement without committee responsibilities. Would particularly suit those cycling on a day to day basis who travel regularly around their area and are able to identify issues that act as a barrier to increasing the numbers of people cycling.
You can put yourself forward for any of these roles via our nominations survey if you are interested in any of the above. We are asking for you to provide personal details so that we can follow up with those applying.
