A Note from the Secretary

Earlier this summer, the Board of Directors of the San Diego Bicycle Club, Inc. voted to move forward with efforts to become a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, which is expected to attract more sponsors. Currently SDBC is a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit corporation. Because of this change, the California Secretary of State required a “Restatement of the Articles of Incorporation” by SDBC members.

On Saturday, September 12, 2015 we held a special election to revise (“restate”) the Club’s Articles of Incorporation. As secretary, I oversaw the balloting along with Marilyn Detloff, Membership Director. Club by-laws required at least 5% of the members vote. After the balloting, we had almost 10% vote, and the final results were 53 “Yes” and 0 “No.” The restated articles were approved.

At the first board of directors meeting following the vote (September 14, 2015) the Directors also unanimously approved the same “Restatement of the Articles of Incorporation.”

We will continue to keep Club members updated as this process continues.

Adina Conwell
SDBC Secretary
