Online registration is now closed. You can register to attend the Local Coordinators Meeting at the door on Monday, September 8, starting at 12:30 p.m.
Register for the biennial gathering of local government agency pedestrian and bicycle staff, in conjunction with Pro Walk / Pro Bike / Pro Place. This is the only meeting of its type in our field, and an invaluable opportunity to network with your fellow city, county and regional colleagues; find solutions to your challenges (or at least a sympathetic ear); share and learn from others' innovations and best practices...and much more!
If you're an engineer, planner or other professional who leads a pedestrian and/or bicycle program for a city or county, you should attend this meeting. See agenda details below and suggested activities before and after the meeting. You're encouraged to submit at least one photo and a brief description of your favorite project; this can be done on the registration form or submitted later (we'll send you a link).
Register and pay online; payment at the time of registration is required. You may also register at the door, subject to space availability.
