The role of Councillors

The Role of Councillors
The Role of Councillors
Working for the CTC in a voluntary capacity as a Councillor can be immensely rewarding when the Councillor is able to carry through, by working with others, results that are clearly good for the CTC, good for cycling and good for the well being of the nation.

CTC is the national cycling charity. It is an organisation of substance and stature with a multi-million pound turnover, supporting thousands of volunteers with a professional staff. The CTC’s administration, policy and performance is guided and monitored by Councillors elected to represent all of CTC’s members and trusted with playing a critical leadership role for the future of cycling.

Councillors will be imbued with the spirit of cycling and will wish to work with others in promoting cycling. They will be supportive of the CTC and share a conviction that the best prospect of growth of cycling in the UK requires the involvement of an active, progressive and effective national cyclists’ organisation. 

As with any voluntary activity satisfaction and influence are largely determined by the amount of time, expertise and energy individual Councillors have and are able to offer. Many will bring experience and expertise gained in industry, commerce, central or local government or in the voluntary sector; others bring day to day knowledge of the needs and aspiration of local cyclists.

The formal status of Councillors is that they are directors of a limited company and charity trustees and therefore have these duties and responsibilities.
