    Well unless you are a member of MTBA you have no say in who, what or how MTBA does its business let alone being able to vote for who does what......
    Just like any other incorporated organisation.

    Shouldnt that read: Because you are a member.......

    That attitude really is one that does MTBA no good, esp when organisations are trying to purport to represent the views of all cyclists etc....and bring about change for All for the good.....Fair nuff, not a member, no vote, but openness wouldnt hurt them once in a while.....

    I must admit I can't understand why we wouldn't want the complete list of who has nominated for all positions right smack bang on the front page right now.

    Default The very least

    A club is about it's members. The very least a club can do is hold a meeting once a year. This AGM had been one cock up after another. It's just not good enough.

    I am not saying it's the fault of one or two people. But when an organisation expects so much from the elected people, where is the equality? It drives me insane that more attention is paid to this site than its hard working club presidents and committees. Now you can have a look at what people actually do believe.

    I am interested in what it would take to get someone to join the organisation. I want to know how we can make it better for clubs, riders, officials, supporters and spectators. Even those who would never thought of watching a mountain bike race. Or those who just want the cover, so they can ride with mates, with peace of mind. I want to know what it would take to get my overweight workmates on a bike. All of those people are welcome.

    I want you to vote if you are a member. Make a difference. Don't sit on the sideline and throw rocks, that gets us nowhere. If you are not a member, what can we do to make you one of us? We as a sporting community can fix MTBA and make it a fun and effective organization. One that we can all be proud to say we belong to it and it belongs to us. We together, have the power to make that happen.

    Most other incorporated organisations allow any one to see the nominations for positions that people are voting for. Even the MTBA website says it will be there and provides a link albeit back to the homepage just leading you round in circles with no answer to what you are looking for.

    Default Where are the list of nominees

    Well Tony,

    You set a deadline for nominations. Put the names up on the front page and stop stuffing everyone around. The voting process is that complicated and backward. For a change, make it easy for your members to have their say.

    HA HA HA... Oh you make me laugh. If they make it easy, people might actually vote and things may have to change! Can't be having that, then people might be accountable to the members!

    I voted, it wasn't as easy as it could be, you would think a link on the front page saying "GO HERE TO VOTE" would be a smart idea... but alas.

    I cant seem to get a link to the log in page to paste to make it easier, but you need to go to the top right corner to the "member login" section, log in, then the voting option will display.
    insert witty remark here...

    I hear you, this whole secrecy and lack of transparency is ridiculous how on earth does the "executive" hope to attract more members and make MTBA what it should be. Lets hope this new committee does something about making the whole MTBA experience more user friendly and transparent.

    I think you'll find that the many on the committee are insisting the info be published, but it's not being done.
    I know of at least one person on the committee who's fighting the requests for transparency, however.
