WFCC is part of the London Cycling Campaign, the world’s largest urban cycling organisation. You don’t need to be an LCC member to attend our meetings, but if you like what we do please consider joining LCC to help support our work. Members also receive discounts in many bike shops, insurance and other benefits.
We need LCC supporters to take cycling to the next level, would you like to be involved?
We are hugely fortunate to live in a borough which has demonstrated the political leadership and council officer skills to transform our roads and deliver streets which are more attractive and far safer for cycling and walking. Campaigners, councillors and council officers from across the UK have visited, been inspired by what’s been achieved, and are now transforming their own areas.
This would never have happened without Waltham Forest Cycling Campaign’s lobbying and focus. And there is still so much to be done to deliver improvements across our borough, and to support everyone who cycles, or would like to.
To maintain this pace of change our campaign must remain proactive and vibrant, and new active members are essential. We need supporters to:
Join our committee
Run campaigns and events
Organise group rides
Work with the council to plan cycling infrastructure
Support LTNs and other schemes
Launch new initiatives … what would you like to see to help local cyclists?
At WFCC’s annual meeting on Tuesday 23rd March, we will be discussing our plans for the year ahead, and electing a new committee.
If you’d like to be involved in any way, please join us on the day, or call or email Paul (email@example.com) or Caroline (firstname.lastname@example.org).
WFCC’s annual meeting is next month on the 23rd of March. The following motions have been recieved and will be discussed and voted upon.
(Note – these are the motions discussed at the March meeting).
Motion 1 – Set term limits
WFCC recognises the need to refresh the coordinator post on a regular basis so that new members can be brought on and responsibilities are shared. It therefore agrees that members can serve no more than two consecutive terms as coordinator.
Therefore we will add the following text to constitution item 17: “To encourage sharing of responsibilities a member can not serve more than two terms as coordinator consecutively. At the end of a coordinator’s second consecutive term they will not be eligible for nomination to that role (to avoid more than two consecutive terms), but will be eligible again after a term of absence.”
Motion 2 – Clarifications
As the constitution is to be amended it makes sense to correct a few ambiguities as noted on this tracked document.
Motion 3 – Which roles are exclusively for LCC members
Item 19 states that all members of the Management Committee must be LCC members, however in the past we have encouraged people to get involved whether or not they are LCC members. I suggest this is changed to Officers so it only includes the core people running the group.
