A word from our Membership Secretary, Clare:
Not yet a member?
Consider joining us! Take a look at the rest of the website or our Facebook page and get a feel for what sorts of things we’re involved in.
Remember that LCCG can always get involved in other ways of supporting the cyclists of Leicester if we have enthusiastic members that are prepared to take a lead. Maybe that person is you!
Even if you can’t give any time at all to working with us, we still need you as a member. The more people that we can speak for, the more powerful is our voice.
Becoming a member
See our Join Us! page for details of how to become a member – it’s really simple. When you become a member, don’t worry about being sent endless numbers of e-mails. The membership secretary, is the only person who sends out messages to the wider membership list – an average of three or four a year, plus details of our AGM in the Spring. Let us know if you don’t even want to get those . As a member you will be invited to join our email discussion group so that you can be as involved as you want to be. As a member, you will also be very welcome at our regular meetings (see details on our home page).
Already a member?
Good for you! You should have received a welcome e-mail. If not then please do let us know (via firstname.lastname@example.org). The welcome e-mail contains all of the information that you need to know at the outset and contains an invitation to join our email discussion group.
I would encourage you to join the email discussion group if you want to be actively involved in how the group operates and to contribute your ideas. You are also encouraged to attend our meetings. Although we do have a committee, we make all decisions about the group at regular meetings or, occasionally, through the discussion group. All members have an equal voice and you really can have your say in how the group functions. Don’t be afraid to attend meetings, we are a friendly bunch and as a member, you have as much right to attend and to have your voice heard as any of us.
Finally, our aim is to ‘make cycling normal’ in Leicester and surrounding areas. You are a part of that so please do let us have your ideas, suggestions and moans. Even better, see if you can help out with the ideas, suggestions and moans of the rest of us! That’s what being a member of LCCG is all about.
