MassBike will hold its first-ever Chapter Summit on Saturday, December 4, 2010, 9am-1pm, in Worcester. The theme for the summit is “Local Issues, Statewide Vision”. For years, MassBike has had regional chapters in Metro Boston, the Pioneer Valley, and the Cape & Islands, to help local advocates focus on local bicycling issues with the support of the statewide organization behind them, and our chapters have had some great successes. But we know we can do even better, and that’s why we’re having the Chapter Summit.
The Chapter Summit will bring together leaders from our existing chapters, people interested in learning more about advocating for bicycling in their area, and MassBike board and staff members. We’ll hear about the chapter program as it exists now, what the chapters have been doing, and talk about how to improve things to strengthen both MassBike as a whole and the chapters individually. Those interested in possibly starting chapters will benefit from the experience of our current chapter leaders, and will have the opportunity to help shape the new-and-improved MassBike Chapter Program.
This event is open to the public, but advance registration is required. Space is limited, so please RSVP by December 1st to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, please contact Executive Director David Watson at 617-542-2453 or email@example.com.
