Call Summary & Recording: Organizing State Summits

By Mary Lauran Hall on February 03, 2014

More and more advocates across the United States are organizing statewide bike and/or walk summits to push active transportation forward at the state level. On this call, we heard from advocates and experts in the field about best practices and tips on how to organize an effective summit.

On a recent Alliance Mutual Aid Call, the organizers behind Delaware and Montana’s bike/walk summits shared their secrets for effective, impactful, and inspiring annual state summits. Pro citizen lobbying advisor Jason Jordan of Advocacy Associates also shared his tips for state house lobby days, and Caron Whitaker of the League of American Bicyclists let us know how to best connect a state summit with the National Bike Summit.
