Nominations are open for RRRC Officers and Board Members

ImageNominations are now being accepted for the positions of Richmond Road Runners Club president, vice president-operations, vice president-marketing, treasurer, secretary and members of the Board of Directors for the years 2020-2021. 

Elections will be held during the Club’s Board Meeting on Dec. 11, 2019 at Basic City Beer Co. (212 W. 6th St. in South Richmond, about a block from Legend Brewing Co.). Those elected will begin their term of office the following day.

In addition to the officers, the Club's Constitution calls for electing no less than five and no more than 20 other members of the Board of Directors.

The deadline for nominations is Sept. 25.  Each candidate is required to submit a statement not to exceed 250 words giving the candidate’s qualifications for office and interest in serving as an officer or Board member.  The statements should be emailed to nomination@rrrc.org.

On or before the Board’s Oct. 9 meeting, the Elections and Nominations Committee shall submit to the membership the names of one or more candidates for each officer position and at least five candidates for the position of director. To be eligible to hold any of the elective positions, a club member must have demonstrated interest in RRRC activities by volunteering for at least one Club activity during the current calendar year and by attending at least one Club meeting during that time.

Any RRRC member may submit a nomination. Nominations are currently being accepted, and additional nominations for any office may be made from the floor at the Club’s Nov. 13 Board meeting, provided that the nominee is present and consents to the nomination. Qualification statements for those nominees must be submitted to nomination@rrrc.org by Nov. 20.

In the case of nominees who were nominated by another person, the Elections and Nominations Committee will reach out to the nominees to ensure that they agree to be nominated and agree to file the required statements.

The Club's Constitution & By-Laws outlines the duties and responsibilities of officers and members of the Board. Candidates for Club president and treasurer, because of their access to Club finances, must agree to submit to a criminal background investigation.

A final list of candidates and their qualification statements will be published on the Club website by Nov. 27. Proxy ballots will be made available online for Club members who wish to vote by proxy. At the Dec. 11 Board meeting, elections will be held using paper ballots. Members may vote in person or by proxy, pursuant to the Club’s designated proxy form given to a Club member who will be present at the meeting.

The candidate receiving a majority of votes cast, ignoring completely blank ballots, for each officer position shall be declared the winner. When more than two candidates are nominated for an officer position and a majority vote is not reached on the first ballot, the candidates having the two highest numbers of votes are put on a ballot for a runoff. 
A candidate for member of the Board of Directors is declared elected if a majority of votes cast, ignoring completely blank ballots, are a vote for the candidate’s election.

River City Mile is CANCELLED

ImageRRRC has cancelled the River City Mile due to unforeseen circumstances.

Any runner already registered for the River City Mile will receive a full refund.

We are sorry that we had to make this decision.

RRRC hopes to get a 1-miler on the schedule for 2020, because RVA deserves its own 1-mile event.
