1st Annual Member Meeting Reschduled for Wednesday, 9/18/13

Our 1st Annual Membership Meeting will be held on September 18, 2013 at 6 p.m.  The location is still tentatively the Rosa Parks Transportation Center, although we are considering a larger venue given the overwhelming response to our Facebook event - 92 going and 42 maybes since we posted it just a few days ago! We'll post again in the next few weeks with the final location. Either way, social to follow at Jefferson Street Pub. The meeting will focus on Bike Lafayette’s development as a new nonprofit corporation. Our objective is to engage broader participation in the organization’s activities to keep pace with ever growing demand for a bike friendly Lafayette and build a self-sustaining, local bicycling advocacy organization.

Current board members will introduce themselves, provide an overview of the organization’s accomplishments and challenges to date, and share plans for the coming year. Our aim is to invite cycling community input and feedback, and provide concrete opportunities for community members to get involved. Specifically, we’ll solicit membership of new standing committees to perform key organizational functions, including Membership/Volunteers, Communications, Rides/Events, Government Relations, and Community Outreach. We’ll also take nominations for and vote on new board members.

The meeting is open to the public, but only Bike Lafayette members may vote. If you are unsure of your current membership status, email info@bikelafayette.org To join or renew, go to www.bikelafayette.org
