NER 2018 Board of Directors Nominations

New England Randonneurs, Inc. is a member based organization, overseen by a Board of Directors which is elected by the membership yearly. Our BOD is critical to the success of the organization. If you have enjoyed the NER rides in the past and would like to further the organization, please consider running for the board. We generally have 3-4 hour-long conference calls yearly with periodic email discussions at other times. The board determines NER's priorities, event fees, resolves potential difficulties, etc. Board members must be NER members.

In addition to general board members, we are particularly looking for someone with modest accounting skills who can take over as treasurer. (The NER President, Clerk, and Treasurer are board members who take on these roles.)

To nominate yourself or someone else, send a short candidate statement to elections@nerandonneurs.org You may also address board and election questions to this address.

Nominations must be received by November 15th, 2017. The general election ballots will mailed to current NER members shortly thereafter.

Sunday Series Winter Rides

Just a reminder that starting in November we’ll have a 100k on the first Sunday of the month. The first ride of the 2017-2018 season is Sunday, Nov 5th starting from Nashua NH at 9am. More details on the Sunday Series page.

2018 Calendar Annouced

Below are the dates and tentative rides for 2018. There’s a lot of planning still to come but the dates & distances won’t change. Long time riders will notice some Vermont events missing — We’re still figuring out dates so these will be aded as RUSA rides once more details have been finalized. We do expect a Vermont 100-400k plus a fall dirt ride.

Another notable change is that Hanscom Field has been asking cycling groups to find another start location which is a big undertaking for NER. If the start location is moved it will remain in the general area.
