Saint Mary’s initiates new Cycling Club

first_imgWith the Angela Athletic and Wellness Facility having recently opened its doors, new clubs are beginning to as well. One of these clubs is the Saint Mary’s Cycling Club. Club president and junior Megan Hall said she is a certified instructor who has attended spin classes for over three years. She said she hopes the club provides an entertaining atmosphere for Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame and Holy Cross students — beyond the mid-day spin classes the College already offers.“I think it’s important to have a club like this because the only real athletic club we have is yoga, and it gives girls another choice and option to exercise and be healthy,” Hall said. Hall said she wants members to feel welcomed and accepted while cycling. She said she will foster a comfortable environment in which participants feel empowered by keeping everyone in mind while planning a class and picking music.“I use a wide range of music that includes sprint songs and hill songs to get that endurance and the strength,” she said. “If at first you cannot keep up with the choreography, you can just cycle to the beat — you don’t have to do the presses or the tap backs. Just keep the beat and then you can work your way up and eventually do the hills and the climbs.”Vice president and junior Abbi Yucha said one of her primary goals is to unify everyone by bonding athletes, students and faculty members.“We want to bring everybody together,” Yucha said. “I hope to bring staff and students together in a non-academic way.” Hall said she and Yucha want the club to be a fun and fulfilling experience. “[Cycling Club] is a dance party on a bike,” she said. “I hope all participants follow the mottos, ‘Find your inner athlete’ and ‘You get out what you put in.’” The club is open to Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross community members; you can join by emailing Hall at [email protected] and Yucha at [email protected]: Angela Athletic and Wellness Facility, cycling, Cycling club, Saint Mary’s Athleticslast_img read more

They asked to join the board, but you have to hunt for most new directors

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » CUES member James Sackett wanted to be involved in his community in some way. He had always known about and loved the idea of credit unions. So, when he moved to Minneapolis and joined a credit union in nearby Burnsville, he reached out and started the process of joining his CU’s board.Similarly, CUES employee Kari Sweeney wanted to volunteer in her local Wausau, Wisconsin, community, for a mission she’s passionate about. She loves reading, so when a seat opened up on her county’s library board and a friend encouraged her to check it out, she made an initial call and then followed up six months later.Now Sackett is the volunteer vice chair of the board at $1.3 billion Firefly CU and Sweeney is the volunteer vice president of the Marathon County Board of Trustees and a director of the broader Wisconsin Valley Library Service. Professionally, Sackett is a senior director at UnitedHealth Group and Sweeney is CUES’ director of supplier relations.Both of these self-starters called their respective volunteer organizations to express their interest in serving. But it’s safe to say that most directors don’t come to board service that way. In a recent CUES podcast, How to Recruit, Retain and Engage Millennial Directors, Sackett—a millennial—describes some key places to look for young directors, including local colleges or universities. Oftentimes, he says, a professor or other school official is very happy to recommend a student or recent graduate for a possible volunteer role.last_img read more
