The number of activities and programs the ECCC supports grows every year. If you'd like to help keep some aspect of it going or have an idea for something new the conference should be doing, don't hesitate to talk with the Conference Director, or bring it up on the mailing list or at the annual meetings. Innovation and sheer energy are the heart of the ECCC's success, so we're always eager for fresh ideas and new, motivated volunteers.

All ECCC races are put on by the teams and their student leadership.

Collegiate cycling is governed and overseen by a group of trustees. They establish national rules and generally work to grow and improve collegiate cycling throughout all the conferences. Board members are a mix of elite collegiate cyclists, club presidents, varsity coaches, conference directors, and general members. Historically the ECCC has had a significant presence in the board and a huge role in shaping the development of collegiate cycling. If you're interested in representing your riders, friends, and the ECCC on the board, talk to the Conference Director for details.
