Join our Dynamic Team
HUB Cycling is Metro Vancouver’s cycling organization. Through education, action and events, we get more people cycling and help build happier, healthier and more connected communities. Our events celebrate cycling for transportation in fun and unique ways with the primary goal of encouraging people to make the switch to cycling for transportation. Our events also educate the public about cycling safety, engage positively with local businesses, fundraise to support programs and increase membership sales.
The Special Events Manager will play a critical role in helping to get more people cycling in Metro Vancouver. Under the direction of the Director of Corporate Engagement and Events, the Manager will be responsible for soliciting sponsorship funding and coordinating event logistics and marketing for HUB Bike to Shop Days (July 21-23, 2017), HUB Bike the Night (August, 2017), HUB Bike Shorts (November 1, 2017) as well as other fundraising and social events throughout the year. The Special Events Manager will build and steward relationships with various stakeholders and sponsors and recruit and supervise volunteer assistants as well as temporary part-time event staff. The Manager will also assist with HUB’s Organization Membership Program.
HUB’s second-annual Bike to Shop Days will encourage people to ride to and shop at their favourite local businesses. The event will include activation sites near popular shopping areas in Metro Vancouver where people on bikes can stop for free snacks, prizes, giveaways, bike repairs and tips for how to carry shopping items by bike.
HUB’s second-annual Bike the Night is expected to draw thousands participants on bikes for a colourful evening ride on Vancouver streets. The event will include a celebration event at the start of the ride route where participants can enjoy snacks, music, hot chocolate and other free giveaways.
HUB’s third-annual Bike Shorts Film Event will take place November 1, 2017. This evening fundraiser will include 2 hours of short films, a live auction and other fundraising activities.
HUB’s Organization Membership Program consists of 60+ businesses who support better biking cycling and want to connect with our network of people who love bikes. HUB wants to grow our organization member community.
