Refer-A-Friend Campaign Kicks Off!

APBP is excited to announce a new member referral program kicking off today and running through September 12. This is your opportunity to create some buzz and be actively involved in the member recruitment process. 

How it works: Visit www.apbp.org and log into the website. On the right side of the page, in the “My Profile” box, there is a “Refer a Friend” link

You can refer up to 50 friends and colleagues at a time using the online form. A link back to the join APBP page on the website will be automatically included when you send the invitation via the online form. 

In order to get credit for the referral, the new member MUST include your name in the "referred by” field and must complete their dues transaction.

On Sept. 12 at ProWalk ProBike ProPlace, the member with the most referrals will be announced and receive a prize!

FUNDING ALERT:
U.S. MEMBERS

By September 30:

If your state has unspent (aka “orphaned”) funds that were originally earmarked before Sept. 30, 2005 for specific projects, then pay close attention to FHWA’s guidance about repurposing those funds.

Approximately $2 billion is at stake!

Visit the FHWA website to see if your state has funds available.

Several of APBP’s allied groups are working with their members and followers to make sure these funds go to bicycle and pedestrian projects.
