After a lengthy discussion regarding the past, present and future trajectory of the Culver City Bicycle Coalition, members present voted on the following motions:
1) Chairman Wayne Howard brought a motion to amend the meeting notes from 12/8/2015 to include that we will not take the Rules of Governance or name change to the LACBC Board until the following conditions have been met: two subcommittees, one to work on rewriting the Rules of Governance and the other to work on a rebranding strategy with the plan of re-launching as Bike Culver City by May 2016, are formed, and that the subcommittees develop a draft ROG and launch plan, respectively, that are approved by the larger group. Secretary/Treasurer Julie Mendel seconded this motion. Members present voted to approve this motion.
2) Secretary/Treasurer Julie Mendel brought a motion to establish four subcommittees, the two referenced in Motion 1 — a Rules of Governance (ROG) Subcommittee and a Rebranding Subcommittee — and two additional subcommittees suggested by discussion among the members present: an Advocacy Subcommittee and a Centennial Subcommittee (Culver City’s centennial celebration is this year). Member Patrick Murray seconded this motion. Members present voted to approve this motion.
3) Secretary/Treasurer Julie Mendel brought a motion to establish a process for identifying chairs for these subcommittees. The motion proposed that we send out a call for chairs via email, Facebook, and LACBC communications, asking interested parties to contact firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1. Member Patrick Murray seconded this motion. Members present voted to approve this motion.
#1. Revision: All Subcommittee proposals are approved by the Steering Committee, not the Larger group.
#2. is invalid and should be noted as such. All Motions and Seconding of motions can only come from the Steering Committee. We will correct this Motion at our next meeting.
#3. is invalid and should be noted as such. All Motions and Seconding of motions can only come from the Steering Committee. We will correct this Motion at our next meeting.
Next meeting: Tuesday, February 2nd. (Our meetings are typically the second Tuesday of every month, but we are moving up February’s meeting so our Co-Chair, Mark Mallare, can be present.) Meeting agenda and location will be circulated closer to the date.
