Be an engaged Active Trans member

If you're interested in getting more engaged in Active Trans' work, here are a couple of great opportunities for you.

1. Mark your calendar for Monday, Nov. 7—the Active Trans annual member meeting.

At the meeting, you can expect

  • An overview of our work during the past year, including our newly launched Neighborhood Bikeways and Transit campaigns.
  • A keynote speech by Jerome McDonnell, WBEZ host.
  • An introduction to our legislative efforts for the coming year.
  • Active Trans Hall of Fame inductions.
  • An opportunity to meet Active Trans staff and learn about the work they do.

The meeting will be held Monday, Nov. 7, 5:45 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the American Dental Association, 211 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago 60611 (easily accessible by the Red Line Chicago Avenue CTA station, as well as Michigan Avenue and State Street buses).

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. There is a suggested donation of $15 to cover the cost of the snacks, refreshments and facility rental. Please RSVP by Nov. 1. Questions? Contact Rebekah Broussard at or 312.427.3325 x 294.

2. Help develop the Active Trans' 2012 legislative agenda
Active Trans is planning its legislative agenda for the coming year and we want your input before we head to Springfield to advocate on your behalf.

As a regular cyclist, pedestrian and/or transit rider, your expert opinion can help us identify transportation priorities. To gather input from people like you, Active Trans is inviting members to participate in a legislative survey (survey closes October 31).

If you're interested in learning more about how Active Trans develops its legislative agenda and how it guides our efforts as we work to influence legislation, check out this recent Modeshift article, "turning a legislative agenda into law."
