I've applied to be considered for the board of Cycle Toronto. I'll be expected to campaign this time, unlike my first board role which was effectively an appointment.
I applied because:
a) They posted a job description, and I matched it very well (though not perfectly).
b) The challenges they face include making the transition from a "working board" to a governance board. I have experience with the former, but also with designing and implementing the management & governance functions.
c) I'd like to help; Cycle Toronto is an effective organization but faces a nearly limitless challenge in its mission of bringing safe cycling infrastructure to the city.
