APBP Speakers Can Share Expertise on Sustainable Transportation
CEDARBURG, WI – The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) is pleased to announce a new Speakers' Bureau, a line-up of experts in the bicycling and pedestrian fields who can educate and motivate community government and resident groups, members of the media, and conference attendees on all aspects of sustainable transportation policy, planning and design.
These APBP professionals are available to help government agencies and community groups explore how bicycling and walking can make their communities better places to walk or bicycle to work or school, to run errands and to play. Speakers' profiles, topics of expertise, educational and professional backgrounds and contact information can be found at www.apbp.org/?page=Speakers_Bureau. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the speaker directly using the contact information provided on the website. Speakers set their own fees and conditions of service.
The Speakers' Bureau complements APBP's monthly webinar series on a variety of topics related to active transportation and livable communities. In addition, presentations by APBP speakers augment APBP's support of the National Complete Streets Coalition by providing technical expertise to communities around the U.S. and Canada. APBP administers and promotes the Complete Streets Workshop Program, which provides local leaders the tools to develop and implement policies that create safe, convenient, and accessible streets for everyone. The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, which provides expertise for sustainable transportation, is the only professional membership organization for the discipline of pedestrian and bicycle transportation. APBP members – employees of all levels of government, consulting firms and non-profits – work in the engineering, planning, landscape architecture, police, safety, health, education and promotion fields and specialize in improving conditions for bicycling and walking.
