Seeking Board Members

9 Nov

Do you like bikes and want to give back to your community? Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop is seeking volunteers for our nonprofit board of directors.

Board members support our mission of “connecting unused bikes to people who need wheels” with hands-on governance and enthusiasm. Board members are usually elected in January , but can also be appointed by the board at any time. Download the board application.

We are looking for people with experience and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Nonprofit or business management
  • Volunteer coordination
  • Fundraising and grants
  • Budgeting and finance
  • Community connections

Board members commit to monthly Board and committee meetings, connect Sharing Wheels to community groups and potential funding sources, help Sharing Wheels  achieve our strategic plan by keeping focused and thinking critically, and support our programs with their time and efforts.

We seek Board members who bring a diversity of age, race, cultural background, economic background, and experience to our community bike shop.

If you are interested, or if you know of someone who you think would be a great Board member, please contact: board member Kristin Kinnamon at bikenbus or 425-923-7868.
