Updating Your Club or Event Bylaws

Presented by Chad Holmes - Houston Striders Vice President

Chad is an earth scientist living and working in Houston, Texas. After briefly picking up running for exercise in college, Chad was a dedicated treadmill user and solo runner for ​ten years. Intermittent slogs around Central Park and the hilly streets of Manhattan opened his eyes to the broader community of people who loved to run. After moving to Houston, Chad turned to the internet to find a running club in the hopes that they could be both a motivational outlet for training as well as a social outlet for a stranger in a new city. Today, he is Vice President of the Houston Striders, leading efforts around club governance and technology. He also co-coordinates weekly hill training sessions for the club and regularly participates in both local and destination races. This combination of club-based training, volunteering, and leadership opportunities has led Chad to become a strong advocate for the promotion of healthy lifestyles, local engagement, and charitable good that running clubs can offer.
