DC Tri Club TreasurerParticipant
The DC Triathlon Club is seeking eight (8) motivated candidates for the 2019 Board of Directors to join the current Board members serving out the remainder of their two-year term. The Club continues to make changes and, hopefully you agree, improve our offerings and initiatives to make this Club better and better. This is your opportunity to make the future of the club even better! We encourage all interested candidates to nominate themselves for Board membership. A club-wide vote will determine the eight members who will join the 15-member Board.
The incoming Board members will join the following members completing their term:
- Justin Bauer
- Jan Bauer
- Rob Read
- Joyce Jones
- Allison Nordberg
- Meaghan Jennison
- Patrick Pannett
The guidelines for Club members who would like to run for a Board position:
- You must be a paid member for the 12-month period prior to elections, or receive a unanimous vote from the current Board, to be eligible to run (please don’t let this be a deterrent — contact us!).
- The term is a two year commitment (2019 and 2020) to the Board.
- The board meets once per month (2nd Monday of the month) and attendance or calling in is mandatory.
- The board holds a weekend retreat once a year (2019 retreat will be in February timeframe) and attendance is HIGHLY encouraged.
- You should expect to commit 2-5 hours per week for Club duties.
- The club elects people to the Board but not into a specific roll. Returning Board Members are typically given first preferences on keeping their current roll or moving around, so anyone interested in running for the Board should review ALL the directorships and start to formulate an idea of where he/she might want to serve.
If you would like to nominate yourself, please post here and let us know why you are a good candidate (e.g., what you have done for the Club, relevant experience that will help to make you an effective Board member, and what you would like to see happen in 2019). You must post by 11:59 pm on Friday, November 2nd if you would like to be considered. Responses to this thread should only be to announce yourself as a candidate. Please send any questions to email@example.com.
Elections will be held via electronic ballot from Monday, November 5th through Wednesday, November 21st*. The new Board members will be notified on November 22nd and will be strongly encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting & Kona Viewing Party tentatively in December where the 2019 Board will be announced.

Let’s get this party started. I nominate Bryan Frank, Nick Pleisch, Liz Glomb, and Margaret Moral. I’ll let each of them post and sing their own praises while I hum along.October 2, 2018 at 6:02 pm #21557
Umm.. Joyce… this is a self nomination. You don’t nominate other people….. 😉October 2, 2018 at 6:09 pm #21559
Someone nominated me last year, so, well, I did it too. :pOctober 2, 2018 at 7:58 pm #21562
I would be honored and thrilled to be in consideration for the DC Tri Club Board. I have been a member of the club for four GLORIOUS years. I’ve benefitted from the Olympic Distance Triathlete Program as well as Off-Season Spin. Unfortunately, I did not hear about DC Tri Club’s NTP program until I was already on another team but I am a huge fan of all three programs the club offers.
I am originally from Southern California where I learned how to swim when I was 10 years old and when my parents realized it might be a source of college scholarships, put me on a year-round club team only strengthening the Asian parents’ stereotype! Much to their dismay, I received zero college scholarships but did enjoy playing water polo on the men’s club team at Georgetown University.
I have given back to the club by volunteering at Nation’s Tri the last few years (minus this year obviously) as well as NTP’s clinics in Lake Anna. I’ve served as a mentor to an NTP and am active with the Capitol Hill group responding to questions about nutrition, races, training, etc. I have gained so much knowledge and developed relationships with so many awesome club members that I would love the opportunity to give back in a greater capacity.October 4, 2018 at 7:02 pm #21579
It would be my honor to serve as a member of the DC Tri Club board! Serving on the board would give me a perfect opportunity to pay-back for everything the club has done for me. A number of years ago I started with the NTP. I recently returned to the club and now I am looking for ways to better engage with the club.
I have lived in the DC metro since 1981. I’m originally from California, specifically the San Francisco Bay Area. I have gained so much experience & knowledge from the club. I would love the opportunity to give back in a greater capacity.

I would like to nominate myself, David Jiang, for the DC Tri Club Board. I’ve been a member of the club since 2014 when I did NTP and was hooked. Since then, I’ve benefited from various programs including Masters Swim, the winter marathon training group, off-season spin, and most recently the Ironman program. After gaining so much through DC Tri, I would look to give back to the club by serving as one of your board members. I like to take photos and videos and have been helping to produce the video for PeasantMan the last few years. Perhaps some of these propaganda skills will come in handy. Of the many social leagues and running groups that I’ve tried, this has been the most fun and welcoming community and I hope that we can continue!October 12, 2018 at 11:42 am #21623
Hello all, I would like to nominate myself for the board of directors for the DC Tri Club. I’ve been on the board since 2015 and have been serving as your clubs Director of Marketing and Communications (those weekly newsletters you get? Yeah, those are from me). I would like to continue on the board as there is so much more I’d like to give back to the club. It would be a huge honor to be voted back on the board for another term. Thank you for your consideration.October 13, 2018 at 10:00 am #21628
Hello. I would like to nominate myself for one of the open Board positions. I have been an active member of DC Tri since I moved into the area in 2012. Over the years that I have been with the club, I have benefited greatly with my training, participating in the club IM training program (for my first IM in 2014) and preparing me for back to back IMs in 2016 (Chatty and Louisville). I have competed in club races, social events and have volunteered. It is time now for me to give back to the Club. I am looking to get more involved and help the club thrive in 2019. Specifically, I would like to help with the organization of the club social events. Thank you for your consideration.
