By now some of you know that Ron will be leaving the MCA as the Executive Director in mid November. Ron Brown has been the Executive Director for the MCA for the last 3 years. In his time he has helped re organize the MCA to an organization that is respected by many people on many levels.
Ron has been a significant contributor to the vision of where we are going as an organization. His daily duties included running the office, but Ron brought much more to the table than that. The professionalism that he displayed in any situation was remarkable. Ron has made many friends while with the MCA and I would hope that they continue on beyond his time as the ED of cycling.
The contributions Ron made to cycling were not only at the Provincial Level, by attending countless meetings and being our representative with our partners in many different settings. He was also a co-chair of the Inter Provincial Council – IPC on the national level, and recently he was asked to sit on the insurance committee by the CCA as well. Ron was also asked to contribute by the CCA in meetings in Ottawa this past year on risk management.
It was with Ron’s vision; the MCA was able to attain different funding, not only for the organization but for athletes and clubs as well. This vision also helped in the organizations Strategic plan which we will continue to move forward with in a positive manner.
Ron, from the President, the Board of Directors and the membership, thank you very much for all your hard work and dedication. You will be missed. We wish you luck in your future endeavors, and of course we hope to see you riding your bike to work.
The Board of Directors is committed to replacing Ron with the best possible candidate in a timely manner. Please be patient and welcome the new ED as they will have some big shoes to fill.
