Many Club Members offer their time and expertise to one of the CYCA’s Standing Committees that helps formulate policy, and make recommendations to the Board of Directors, which meets once a month.

Following each Annual General Meeting in July, a Standing Committee Chairperson and Duty Chairs, who are also a CYCA Board member, is nominated and they invite Club members with specific skills and knowledge to join their Committee.

If a Club Member would like to join a Standing Committee, they can make themselves known to the Chairperson.

Club Members are encouraged to highlight issues or make suggestions to their relevant Committee member and these are discussed at the monthly meetings. If the Standing Committee supports an idea it will recommend it goes to the Board for final approval.
