2016 APBP Board of Directors Candidate Statement

Tony Hull
Nonmotorized Transportation Consultant

I am a Nonmotorized Transportation Consultant with over 15 years of experience in planning, design and evaluation of active transportation projects. Throughout my career I have had the great fortune to work closely with some of the brightest professionals in our field, and I have developed nationally recognized expertise in bicycle and pedestrian planning. I began my career at the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, where I gained extensive knowledge of practice and project delivery process. I joined Transit for Livable Communities (TLC) in 2008 where my work included overseeing the evaluation of the Federal Nonmotorized Pilot Program in Minneapolis. I joined Toole Design Group in 2012, where I opened the Minneapolis office in 2013. In the fall of 2014, I stepped away from full-time consulting to better focus on individual project work and have more time for non-work endeavors. I currently serve an appointment to the TRB Committee on Pedestrians, and have been an active member of APBP since 2004.

What I would bring to Board
My career has included working in the public, private and non-profit sectors, so I have a keen understanding of our profession from strategic angles. I have spent the past seven years serving on the APBP webinar development committee, helping to shape the program content of this professional development series that continues to be the cornerstone of APBP’s capacity building efforts. I share this passion to grow capacity for our important work and feel APBP is the “go-to” organization for emerging professionals in our field.

My vision for APBP
This is an exciting time for APBP.  The current efforts to procure the services of an Association Management Company will ease the administrative burden on the dedicated staff and allow for more strategic planning and development of new programs and resources.  I see the need to manage the growth of APBP and focus on supporting the growing local chapters to improve state and local support networks. I see APBP maturing with our profession and leading the way to developing an accreditation program for pedestrian and bicycle professionals, an area of critical need as communities aggressively seek improved livability, and need stronger assurance of the competency of civic innovators. I see APBP as the organization to realize this vision and I seek your support for my candidacy for the Board of Directors.
