Board Candidate Spotlight: David Madson
The League’s Board of Directors serves a critical role in guiding the organization to a sustainable and vibrant future. The Board is made up of both board-appointed and member-elected seats — and currently, there are five open seats and nine candidates for those member-elected spots. We need YOUR votes to determine who will join the board for the next three years.
You can read more about all of the candidates and how to vote at bikeleague.org/vote. We are also highlighting each of our nine candidates on the blog this week and next. Today’s candidate spotlight is David Madson, a current board member up for reelection.
Madson just completed his first term on the Board of Directors of League of American Bicyclists, after previously serving on the LAB development committee for several years. As a committed Life Member, Madson is a major donor and has also made a planned gift for the League through my estate. As a Board member Madson has used his professional expertise in fundraising to provide counsel in launching a major gifts initiative, which has resulted in the LAB receiving new gifts ranging from $10,000-$400,000. Through participation in the annual Bike Summit and membership in the California Bicycle Coalition, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, East Bay Bicycle Coalition and Marin County Bicycle Coalition, Madson is knowledgeable of bicyclists concerns and government regulatory and legislative issues at local, regional, state and federal levels. A daily bicycle commuter, Madons also enjoys long-distance riding and is presently training for the Death Valley Double Century. Madson would be honored to continue serving the League on behalf of all people who bicycle. Thank you.
