SFBC Annual Member Meeting + Treehouse Talk: Copenhagen

From SFBC:

Come up to the SF Bicycle Coalition offices for our annual member meeting. The night will kick off with a Treehouse Talk given by the SF Bicycle Coalition’s Andy Thornley and Jodie Medeiros and SF Municipal Transportation Agency’s Mike Sallaberry. They’ll share some of what they saw and learned in Copenhagen at Velo-City 2010 when over a thousand bicycle advocates, planners, and policymakers came together in Copenhagen to take part in this conference dedicated to promoting bicycle transportation and recreation around the world. Following the Treehouse Talk, members of our Board of Directors along with Acting Executive Director Renee Rivera will share more about what we’ve accomplished in the past year and what we have in store for 2011 and beyond. A report on SF Bicycle Coalition programs, finance and membership will be followed by an open Q&A and light refreshment. Bring your bicycle up with you.
