GMBC needs YOU!

GMBC's Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Friday 3rd March after our fun race, BBQ and before the Summer No Frills Series Presentations.

Our events don’t happen by themselves. As a Not For Profit Sports Club we rely heavily on pro-active volunteer Committee Members supported by many dedicated club members willing to help. We'd like this to continue to enable us to improve the quality of the events we bring to all our members and other mountain bikers around the region.  Attached is a document outlining our achievements and plans

While the club is required to fill formal committee roles there are distinct teams within the committee structure that look after certain aspects of the club. We all work together - our Organisation Structure is here.

GMBC are seeking volunteer help from more Club Members as recognised supporters who are willing to be contacted to help by the team leaders in paired-up buddy style format. You dont have to attend committee meetings, your help in the background will be recognised and very much appreciated.

If you have skills and knowledge that you think the Club would benefit from, please contact the current committee members directly, let us know on the Club Phone 0407433682 or our email address geelong.mtb.club@gmail.com in regard to the teams and roles below:
