BHHB Committee Responsibilities

This page outlines the duties of each member of the illustrious Bangkok Bike Hash committee. Its purpose is to make it easier for all members to understand who does what and for new committee members to understand what they need to do.

If you think anything needs to be added, changed or clarified please send your suggestion to the Grand Master.

If a committee member is unable to perform their duties one month (e.g. because you can't attend the ride) then it is their job to find someone to cover for them.
