Board Nominations Are Now Open!
You can help APBP continue to advance its mission to provide expertise for active, sustainable transportation. With an updated strategic plan launching soon and many new initiatives on the horizon, APBP needs and welcomes the enthusiastic participation of its members on the Board of Directors.

Here are some of the main functions of an APBP Board member: oversee the direction and management of the association, lead specific projects, committees 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. 

Those who are elected to the Board will serve a 3-year term (2017-2019). 

Submit a 400-word statement of interest to info@apbp.org by August 30. Use "Board Nomination" as the subject line of your e-mail message. Your statement of interest should include the following three headings and describe:
  1. your qualifications

Keep in mind that your statement will be posted on the website and sent by e-news to all members.

SMART CITY CHALLENGE

Columbus, Ohio was recently selected as the winner of the Smart City Challenge.

As the challenge winner, Columbus intends to deploy a fleet of fully electric shuttles for a new bus rapid-transit center, expand its investment in electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, provide assistance to fleet operators to encourage EV adoption and create an EV cooperative buying program, among other actions.

Columbus intends to leverage a new central connected traffic signal and integrated transportation data system to address specific transportation challenges faced in four districts across the city.
