Feedback on Chapter activities 0 S. Smith Here's a summary of the surveys received at the 2015 Ontario Bike Summit. Top 3 responses: -Presentations by thought leaders and subject matter experts -Effective communication to, from, and between members -Effective communication with local and provincial governments by recommending policies & engagement in public discussion Other interests: -social and networking events -mentor opportunities (APBP has an annual mentorship program) -contribute to the profession -active transportaton tours -host APBP webinars -effective communication with other organizations -pro bono work in underserved communities (e.g. walk and bike audits) -outreach to elected officials Note that although communication is important, our main focus is on knowledge and professional development and support.  Advocacy mostly outside our mandate. Any ideas for our next event? Anyone willing to lead a discussion or presentation? Any location ideas for a mobile workshop?

Notes from Knowledge Cafe at Ontario Bike Summit 0 S. Smith The Ontario Chapter had their inaugural meeting at the Ontario Bike Summit 2015 on April 1 (no fooling).  Share the Road Coalition, the summit hosts, invited APBP members to run a “knowledge café” session discussing four hot topics of interest to APBP members in Ontario: protected bike lanes, neighbourhood greenways, winter maintenance and performance monitoring.  Over 50 people attended the interactive session.  With 60 APBP Ontario members, the Ontario Chapter charter members invited comments on what activities are of importance to the Chapter.
