RSVP now: 2016 Season Kickoff RSVP

FMRC team, I’m excited to announce the opening of our FMRC season. It’s only a week into the new year and we already have a lot going on. In case you missed the announcement at the holiday party, our new board was elected by the membership and started on the job on Jan 1.

Your new board members are as follows:

  • Christy James, President
  • Joe Condon, Vice-President
  • Larry Feigenbaum, Secretary
  • Dan Leonard, Treasurer
  • Marty Breen, Title Sponsor Board Member, Forward Motion Sports

The new board had their first meeting on 1/3 and made a lot of progress to start the new year. One of our key goals this year is to increase transparency of the board transactions with our membership and drive more membership engagement. With that goal in mind, many of the prior board positions were converted to committees. Based on the call for volunteers, the below committees have been established and committee leads selected. Want to get involved? Need to connect?

  • Ambassador Team – Steve Chavez
  • Sponsorship – Vali Holroyd
  • Social – Janet Tsuji
  • Team Kits – Jason Cooke
  • Triathlon – Ironman Club Liason: Julie Pfeifle, Local races: Mandie Rewcastle
  • Running – Open

Another top priority item was updating the club bylaws. This update has been completed. Top items that were updated were to align the way we manage our membership process online with our terms, changing the board terms to be staggered so we don’t turn over the entire board at one time, and updating the board/committee relationships to better support our objectives relative to a CA non-profit law change that became effective in 2015.

Our Season Kickoff meeting will be on the late afternoon of 1/31, location and exact time to be announced shortly. Save the date and come meet your new board and committees. This kickoff is going to be awesome with a bit more of a town hall interactive style and lots of mingling. Come to learn all about the upcoming new programs for the club for the year. We’ve got changes to the Challenge Series, a new competitive Grand Prix competition, new committees, and a fresh approach to our kits. Interact with our sponsors and win a some prizes too! We’ve also got a very exciting announcement coming as a membership benefit this year. So be sure to be there to get the hottest news. To help us prepare for this meeting, we’d also really appreciate it if all our members would get on the site and complete your profile details.

Happy Racing,
Your FMRC President
Christy James
