2018 Membership is now open!

Posted: January 17, 2018 by Membership in Membership

We’re getting the ball rolling for the upcoming year and are now accepting membership applications for the 2018 race season!

As in previous years, you can process your entire application electronically via the CRA Store, or if you prefer you may process it via US Mail or even in person at a membership meeting.

First, please take the time to read the membership cover letter for this season found here: 2018 Membership Cover Letter. This gives you some information on how to process your membership application, discusses some changes that were made to the CRA membership application, as well as some upcoming events and things happening this race season.

Second, download the CRA membership application found here: 2018 CRA Membership Form. Please make sure you are filling this form out completely, and legibly. If we cannot read part or all of your application – it may result in delays processing your application, and as a result you may miss out on important deadlines! Another important item is that you MUST physically, or properly electronically sign if submitting electronically, your membership application.

**Racers have until February 15th to keep their 2017 race numbers!!**

If have any questions in regards to your membership application, or any other membership related questions – please feel free to email me directly.

James Michaelson – Membership Director

Are you customer service driven? Do you enjoy talking with racers? Are you ready to make a long-term commitment to the CRA?

We have an opportunity for you!

After a combined 19 years’ of volunteering in Race Registration Kim and I are ready to pass the torch to two new eager individuals to take what we have accomplished to the next level. We are looking for two individuals to become the new Co-Chiefs of Race Registration and would like the new leadership to train with us over the 2018 season.

We would like to thank all our volunteers and racers for 10 years of fun, laughs, and friendships.

If you’re interested or have any questions, please contact Kim and Anna at racereg@cra-mn.com

With appreciation,

Kim and Anna

2017 BoD Election Results

Posted: October 4, 2017 by President in Announcements, Elections, Membership

Greetings to all CRA Members,

This communication serves to inform the Membership of the results of the 2017 CRA election for Board of Directors. This year’s election, held in accordance with the official CRA by-laws and executed according to all applicable state laws, presented the Club with a similar circumstance to years past. Before I go into the details of what is coming next, I will take this opportunity to congratulate Adam Bastien and Scott Masterton on their election to the Board!

So, what about the third seat? As has happened in past elections, this year’s election was valid per the number of ballots received as a percentage of our active membership as of the date of record. However, no single remaining candidate received enough votes to constitute a majority of the ballots cast.

The CRA by-laws state: “A majority of the total number of votes cast by the members for each Director’s seat to be filled shall prevail.” This means that each open seat must be filled by a candidate that has acquired enough votes to be considered a majority of the ballots received.

This means the CRA will hold a special election in the next few weeks to elect the third board member for 2017. We will assemble and e-mail/mail a new ballot for the remaining single open seat indicating the remaining candidates and space for a write-in candidate. Voting eligible members (members as of the date of record – October 3rd, 2017) will cast a single vote for one of the remaining candidates, or use the write-in space to indicate their single choice. A special election meeting will be held on November 7th at 7pm at the Richfield VFW to certify the special election results.

If you have any questions regarding this information – please contact the Board for clarification.

Again, congratulations go out to Adam and Scott on their election, and we as the CRA Board of Directors look forward to completing our election process on November 7th.
