USA CYCLING INC.
USA CYCLING BOARD OF DIRECTORS
USA Cycling has seven Sport Committees that work with designated staff in an advisory capacity to develop plans, rules, strategies and policies for the development and operation of each of their respective disciplines. Each Sport Committee also appoints one member to sit as a Director on the USA Cycling Board of Directors.
Sport Committees are made up of a mixture of elected and appointed members, the composition of which is determined by the USA Cycling Board of Directors. USA Cycling holds an election every year for various Sport Committee positions. Sport Committee members serve 2-year terms with a term limit of 4 consecutive terms with the exception of designated athlete positions who serve 4-year terms.
The disciplines covered by the Sport Committees are: Professional, Road, Track, Mountain, BMX, Cyclo-cross and Collegiate.
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 two 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.
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.
