The board developed criteria to ensure that the nomination process resulted in a new board that is truly representative of the diverse communities we serve. The criteria included but were not limited to:
- Geographical balance
- History as a community leader
- Actively engaged with BikeSGV projects
- Capable of significant fundraising
- Bicycles regularly
- Strong community network
Based on the criteria, each existing member of the board was asked to nominate potential candidates. After compiling a short list, the board proceeded with a simple process of elimination. To no surprise, the final nominee was Councilmember Marlen Garcia of Baldwin Park.
We are distinctly honored and proud to announce that Ms. Marlen Garcia has accepted the position and we welcome her to the BikeSGV Board of Directors. A new board and a solid core volunteers, combined with a robust portfolio of projects only reassures us that BikeSGV's horizon is bright and sunny.
