The Leadership Retreat
2019 Active Transportation Leadership Retreat
In 2018, the League of American Bicyclists was excited to host the first Leadership Retreat for state and local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups since 2014. This event brought together leaders from city and state-wide advocacy organizations for networking and workshops aimed at increasing capacity and effectiveness, and mapping out a plan for better collaboration between local, state, and national groups.
Looking forward to the 2020 National Bike Summit, we are excited to convene leaders from advocacy organizations once again on March 14, 2020.
