You can help APBP continue to move forward with its mission to provide expertise for sustainable transportation. With a fresh strategic plan and many new initiatives on the horizon, APBP needs and welcomes the enthusiastic participation of its members on the Board of Directors.

APBP strives to be the go-to resource for training and tools related to bicycling and walking. The monthly webinar program and its offshoots continue to meet the training needs of agency staff and consulting firms. APBP also offers onsite training for bicycle parking, pedestrian accessibility and complete streets. Members also share information and expertise through our list serve and website, and connect at social gatherings at events and conferences; we plan to increase opportunities for in-person networking.

Here's what APBP Board members do: oversee the direction and management of the association, take responsibility for specific projects and action teams, recruit new members, ensure a solid, balanced budget, contribute to the association's financial success, and represent APBP members at conferences and meetings. APBP's Board of Directors is an active board that makes a difference for our profession!

Four seats are open on the 2014 board. Terms are three years, and a member may serve two consecutive terms. Members elected this year will serve on the board from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016.
