Director of events
Carl Hanson: Moving away from my home town of Powell River and then moving back in 2018, I feel like I have a good picture of what the olden days were and what is new and exciting to come. I have been heavily involved in the mountain bike scene since moving back and have welcomed and toured many out-of-towners I’ve met on the trails. I can see this area turning into a mountian bike mecca over the next ten years and beyond. I would love to help shape that and get more people stoked on biking! I have experience with social media and have an eye for videography. My current work is largely decision making and managing people and projects. My unofficial resume may also include beverage consultant. Cheers!
Director of fundraising
Director of membershiP & Volunteers
C Chad Warford: Having embraced several modes of biking in the qRD and reaped the benefits of the hard work the community does to make this a great place to move on two wheels, I want to give back. It has been a long time since I have made a contribution to any volunteer efforts, and while my primary strengths are as an educator, I have, as a baseline, strong organizational, communication, and information conduit skills which I can lend. Initially, I would like to serve as a director at large in order to find the best fit for my skills and capacity in the context of the QRCA’s needs, with a view to taking a more active role in a defined position in the future. I could probably do an adequate job of Events or Volunteers if those positions have no other candidates, but would also relish being directed as extra capacity for other directors when needed.
Director of active transportation
Chris Lightfoot: I am interested in helping establish more safe, easy and enjoyable paths for cycling across qathet so people aged 8 through 80 feel comfortable choosing to cycle to wherever they like/need to go. Streets that are designed to safely accommodate walking, rolling and biking contribute to our community’s physical, social and economic well-being. I’m excited to meet and work with others who would like to see better cycling across qathet.
Directors at large
Ty Bourassa: Trail builder, mountain biker, previous board member. I want to help find a common ground with trail building and the legalization process. A step by step process that makes trail applications/legalization user friendly and motivates more builders to come forward.
