What are the main tasks of a cycling group chair?
The duties of a chair may include:
- presiding at each meeting of the group's committee and at its Annual General Meeting
- having the casting vote in the event of a tie if a motion is put to the meeting
- facilitating the efficient and correct conduct of the meeting in accordance with the group's constitution (see the Handbook for Cycling UK Groups for more)
- deputising for the group's secretary
Note: Some groups use the term president for the role of chair. This is acceptable but a distinction should be made between a president acting as chair and a president appointed for purely honorary/symbolic purposes who has no formal duties.
