News has emerged that the meeting conducted by the board of Cycling Ireland where they agreed to nominate Pat McQuaid for the position of UCI President may not have been conducted according to official procedures.
If this is proven to be the case, legally, any decisions made at that meeting will be rendered null and void. Consequently, the board are now faced with deciding all over again, whether to nominate Pat McQuaid or to call an EGM to let the members of Cycling Ireland have their say.
However, the board are due to meet again this evening at 17:00 (26th April 2013), so you must act NOW if you want to make a difference in the future of cycling. Last time out, the board made a decision on this matter without consulting their paying members and without explaining the reasons why they nominated Pat McQuaid. Don’t let the same thing happen again.
