Subject: Reform Bicycle NSW

I'm sending this email to generate discussion amongst the BUGS about reforming
Bicycle NSW in order to give BUGS and the 10 000 NSW members more  say in how
its run. Please discuss this with your members and then email your opinion/
questions to either john or Ian.
thank you.
As a follow up to some discussion at the 2005 Annual General Meeting of Bicycle
NSW we would be interested to know the thoughts of others to the following
To encourage greater participation of members of Bicycle NSW in the Annual
General Meeting we suggest the following:

  ● To increase Bicycle NSW s commitment to and involvement with its members,
    we suggest that positions on its Board be 'elected by lot' , specifically
    to liaise with and promote BUGs throughout NSW. (please note: 'elected by
    lot' means random selection from membership list.)
  ● Some weeks prior to the AGM there be a special boxed section of Push On
    outlining the main purposes and issues to be taken up at the AGM.

  ● The AGM to occur during the last half day of a two-day BUGs workshop
    dealing with

      (a) BUG purposes and activities, (b) BUG governance, and (c) BNSW

  ● The BUG workshop be organised and hosted by one of the larger/more
    successful BUGs at no substantial cost to Bicycle NSW as an organisation.
    So, for example, if Bathurst BADBUG or Bicycle Wagga Wagga or Northern
    Rivers Cycling Club or NAMBUG or BUG LE BUG (Leeton) or Cootamundra BUG
    hosts the workshop, then they would provide the appropriate facilities for
    the AGM also.

The effect of such changes to the present operation of Bicycle NSW would be to
shift emphasis towards the role of BUGs vis- -vis the central support
organisation (Bicycle NSW). It would also, we hope, tend to provide a balance
to the traditional Sydney-centric operation of Bicycle NSW. We think it would
certainly lead to productive ideas for BUGs to share and could even make the
AGM fun!
