Vote for the APBP Board of Directors
An important right of APBP membership is your ability to vote for the association's leadership.  Please take a few moments to read through the bios for this year’s candidates and consider the leaders you want to grow and shape APBP's future.

Polling will be open for all APBP professional, advocate, young professional, and retired members until November 16. Please click here to access the ballot and read the candidates' statements.  You will need to be logged into your member account to place your vote.  If you need password assistance, please contact headquarters at

We have two seats open on the Board of Directors this year.  This will give APBP a ten-member Board for the 2017 year.  After strategic discussions on the best governance model for APBP at this time of growth and change, we have determined that decreasing the size of the Board (from thirteen to ten members) will provide many advantages to the association.

As a Board we are focused on shifting to a more high-level, strategic governance.  A smaller Board has the potential to work more nimbly and efficiently in decision-making during face-to-face meetings as well as conference calls and email exchanges held continuously throughout the year.  It will also open opportunities for active and dedicated APBP members willing to donate time and effort in serving the association as committee chairs or in other focused leadership positions.  

Thank you for taking time to review the candidates for this year’s Board of Directors election and for submitting your vote!

Join APBP for the October webinar!

Intersections that Work for Pedestrians and Cyclists
Wed., October 19
3:00 to 4:00 pm ET

The Dutch approach to intersection design of separating modes and increasing sociability through eye contact presents an opportunity for significant safety improvements to transportation networks while meeting operational demands. The webinar will evaluate the safety issues for pedestrians and cyclists that lie in traditional intersection designs, as well as identify the principal elements involved in protected intersection design and explore their role in increasing safety.

At the 2015 National Walking Summit, several keynote speakers and presenters put forth the call to action that the walking movement use walkability to undo decades of injustice perpetrated across the U.S. from policies, programs and attitudes that fuel social and economic divisions along lines of class, race, income and other differences. The Every Body Walk! Collaborative heeded this call and came together to develop the Social Justice Toolkit. 

The Social Justice Toolkit aims to provide organizations and individuals working within the walking movement resources and guides to help them achieve objectives related to fostering equity, fairness and justice within communities.
