Winning Campaigns Trainings

The Alliance's signature Winning Campaigns Training uses proven curriculum targeted specifically to the unique needs and experience of bicycle and pedestrian advocates. This sought-after workshop, conducted in cities across North America, creates new advocates and reignites veteran organizers with critical skills to effect immediate change in their communities. In just three days, participants learn key organizing tactics in strategizing, funding and conducting campaigns that transform the transportation landscape in their cities and states. These trainings are intended for any potential campaign leader in your organization who would benefit from gaining the tools to craft and manage powerful advocacy campaigns.

Mutual Aid Conference Calls

The leaders of Alliance member organizations include many experts on various aspects of organizational development and bicycle and pedestrian advocacy. The Alliance's Mutual Aid program connects leaders through the convening of interactive conference calls on timely and important topics, challenges or best practices within our movement. The Alliance's Mutual Aid services are free to leaders of Alliance member organizations. Whether you're a veteran advocate or just getting started, we know that you'll have something to share and something to learn on any of our Mutual Aid conference calls. If you are interested in attending webinars on the new federal transportation law, MAP-21, go to the Advocacy Advance website.

Alliance Leadership Retreat

The Alliance for Biking & Walking was founded at our first retreat for bicycle advocacy leaders in 1996. Today, we continue the tradition of bringing together bicycle and pedestrian advocacy leaders from across the country for three days of networking, learning, and fun. At our biennial leadership retreats, you'll gain professional and organizational insight in interactive workshops and plenary sessions — and be rewarded with lots of optional recreational rides, festive campfires, and a grand finale party. For all you do year-round as an advocate, you deserve the Alliance Leadership Retreat!
