ATLANTA -- July 16, 2019 -- Will you help guide the future of Running City USA? Atlanta Track Club is now accepting nominations for its Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is the governing body for the Club, a 501(c)(3) not for profit. It is responsible for driving strategic direction aligned to the mission and vision of a healthier Atlanta through running and walking.

Nominees must be Atlanta Track Club members for at least one year and reflect the diversity of the organization as well as the broader Atlanta, national and global running community. Prior non-profit board experience is a plus, but not a requirement.

"As a member of the Board of the second largest running organization in the U.S., I am able to participate with my colleagues and the staff in setting strategy that not only affects the direction of the organization, but positively impacts the health of greater Atlanta population, and through example reverberates throughout the running/walking community around the globe," said Shawn Hardister, Board Chair. "All of us are runners as well as business leaders, and it is wonderful to serve in your area of passion."

Board members serve three-year terms and must attend monthly meetings as well as meetings of any committee on which they serve.

Those interested must submit a resume or CV and a letter of intent describing why the person should be a member of the board and how they would contribute to Atlanta Track Club. Nominations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, September 6 and can be emailed to boardnominations@atlantatrackclub.org
