2019 Active Transportation Alliance Annual Meeting

This past week, Active Trans held our annual member meeting, which provided an opportunity to celebrate the stellar work that our volunteers do.

There were lots of shout-outs, high-fives, and awards mixed in with mingling, noshing, and quaffing of frothy beverages.

Active Trans is deeply indebted to its volunteers. Volunteers fix bikes, they write newsletter articles, and they ensure that our big events like Fifth Third Bike the Drive come off without a hitch.

And that’s just the beginning. Throughout the year, they dedicate themselves to hundreds of tasks that support our work.

To all of you, we send out a hearty thank you!

Congratulations also goes to two new board members who were elected at the meeting: Luann Hamilton and Adolfo Hernandez.

Here are the awardees and photos of some of the attendees:
