Call to order by J.D. Booker.
Rooster’s Food Truck Yard, Jarvis Reyes.
•They are looking to hold a Family Friendly event down town involving a large barbeque and bringing in several food trucks. The event would also include a bike ride that would start around Main and Ave. O, travel up Broadway, around Texas Tech University then back to Rooster’s Food Truck Yard.
•It is recommended that everything start with the larger companies in the area who have connections with the city and Texas Tech.
•We (WTCA) can offer suggestions, serve as a sounding board, as well as help provide riders for the event.
•Would be a good opportunity to show the bike population in Lubbock and offer a chance for community engagement.
•Very family friendly event including food, games, and other family oriented events.
•We have asked Jarvis to keep in contact with us regarding this event and we will promote as best we can.
J.D. would like to talk about Officers.
•We have a hard time filling all of the slots each year. We might have too many positions, and we might be able to consolidate some positions and thus fill the board more easily.
•WTCA: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Advocate, Newsletter, and Web-Master.
•LBC: Vice-President, Tour Director, Treasurer
•Chaparral: Vice President, Race Director, Treasurer
•Randy has suggested that the VP and Tour/Race Director be combined for LBC and Chaparral.
•The Treasurer position might not be so easily combined with anything else.
•WTCA Treasurer has the largest responsibility, but all three should have someone who is on top of the business.
•WTCA Advocacy position mostly makes their own work. Primarily the position handles the Ride of Silence and media relations.
•The WTCA President and Advocacy Director may be two positions that can be combined.
•There will be more discussion of this subject at the next meeting.
•The August meeting will be used to initiate Officer Search Committees for 2018.
WTCA Newsletter; e-mail pictures to Carol at bicyclenewsletter@gmail.com
