USA Cycling, Inc. Governance & Election Info

  
  


USA Cycling Election Overview

Each year, USA Cycling holds elections among our license holders for various positions on our sport committees. Members can vote for candidates in their various constituent groups. Sport committee terms are for three years for non-athletes and four years for athletes, and the positions are staggered such that there are elections for various positions held every year.

Nominations notices are usually published in May and voting begins later in the summer.

Election Information and Eligibility Guidelines

USA Cycling Board of Directors

National Technical Commission

The National Technical Commission (NTC) serves in an advisory function to the Technical Director and to the Chief Executive Officer of USA Cycling on issues relating to rules and regulations, officiating at the national level, and to communicate national policies relating to officiating to district- and regional-level organizations.

Sport Committees

In 2011, the USA Cycling Board of Directors approved a revised organizational governance structure with the goal of ensuring the bylaws and operating principles of the company accurately reflect the current business models of the sport today and for the foreseeable future. The current governance structure is designed to clarify roles and responsibilities and eliminate ambiguity in the original documents when USA Cycling, Inc. was created in 1995.

The role of the sport committees is to serve in an advisory capacity and work with USA Cycling staff to develop competition rules and consider issues relevant to their respective discipline. Each sport committee will also nominate and elect representatives to the USA Cycling Board of Directors. Representation on sport committees is based on membership categories rather than by region, allowing all of the stakeholders in our sport to have a more relevant and consistent role in the development and growth of each specific discipline.

The sport committees meet once a year face to face, usually at the fall meeting in late October or early November. They also conduct conference calls as needed. The sport committees advise staff on matters pertaining to their respective disciplines, including racing rules. Sport committee terms are for three years for non-athletes and four years for athletes, and the positions are staggered such that there are elections for various positions held every year.
