Purpose of the role:
To lead implementation of the Bike Manawatu communications, sponsorship, financial operation, and marketing strategies as developed by the Board. This includes working closely with both volunteers within the organsation and other sporting bodies, and thus the role requires best-practice communication between these internal and external stakeholders of the organization.
It is envisaged that this role will take around 2 days per week.
This includes budget preparation, managing income and expenditure, organizing, coordinating purchase of necessary equipment and uniforms, and liaising with the National Sporting Body (Cycling NZ) to ensure robust and simple membership payment procedures.
Work with Board to produce funding and sponsorship applications aligned to the Bike Manawatu strategy.
We are pleased to announce that the ‘Churchyard Physiotherapy La Femme fun ride’ will take place on Sunday March 1st, this year joining together with the community to raise money for the Palmerston North Cancer Society.
The Routes have been altered to meet everyone's needs, including ‘The Cancer Society 20k family fun ride’, taking in the beautiful scenic riverbank track, 44 and 60 km routes out in the gorgeous Manawatu countryside and we have included a three person accumulator this year to make the experience a lot more enjoyable and very achievable for anyone!
This year we are beginning in the Centennial Lagoon area, and returning there for a light brunch and entertainment after the event.
Registrations will be available early next week at the BikeManawatu website.
