Board of Directors - This group formally oversees all committees and governs the bicycle coalition overall, and meetings are open to the public. We strongly recommend future board directors to participate in subject committees before applying to become a board member.
Executive Committee- This is a sub-group of the board of directors. This is the only committee that is not open to the public, however, members of the public may be invited to speak with us on a pressing subject from time to time.
Policy Committee meets weekly to discuss bicycle-transportation related issues and opportunities. These include opportunites for encouraging safer and efficient roadway designs for biking, providing public input on non-motorized transportation projects and brainstorming methods for making the region a better place to bike through improved funding, design and implementation of infrastructure and policies.
