Bicycle Friendly America Spring/Summer 2016 - (Page 28)

2016 NATIONAL BIKE SUMMIT & WOMEN'S FORUM CALLING ALL CANDIDATES FOR LEAGUE BOARD SERVICE Are you ready to serve on the Board of Directors of the League of American Bicyclists? Then consider running to be elected by the membership. Service on the Board of the League is an excellent way to have a long-term impact on the organization and the active transportation movement at the national level. If elected, you would become a member of a dedicated team of concerned and engaged colleagues who work with Alex Doty, Executive Director, to identify long-term goals, support the implementation of innovative strategies for lasting change, seek to diversify the membership and work to encourage communities, businesses and universities to make a Bicycle Friendly America a reality. For information about the qualifications and the election procedure go to All interested candidates should submit their materials by July 31 for the election, which will be held in late November 2016. New Board members will begin their three-year term in March 2017 at the National Bike Summit. Like all non-profit boards, service on the League Board of Directors is voluntary. The League Board has set high standards for itself and expects all members to serve the best interest of the League and not their personal or partisan interests. All members are expected to understand and take seriously the fiduciary responsibilities of board service, unselfishly devote the necessary time, bring needed skills and experience, and provide financial support. Just as importantly, members are expected to work collegially collaboratively with each other and the executive director. As you read the qualifications at, I encourage you to consider the following questions. 28 BICYCLE FRIENDLY AMERICA
