We ask that Board Members:

- Help the Coalition live up to our JEDI committment
- Actively assist with fundraising efforts

- Time commitment The board meets for two hours 8-10 months out of the year and board members are asked to help with committee work in between these meetings – such as development, communications, or membership. Three-year term limits are placed on board members, and those terms can be renewed. Currently, all meetings are being held remotely.
- Community Centric Fundraising is core to our development approach. All board members are asked to help ensure that we live up to the principles of Community Centric Fundraising.
The Bicycle Coalition works to Build Better Communities in the Valley using the Bicycle as a tool. Our current campaigns include:

- Trails on Public Lands – Continuing to expand and improve accessible trails on our public lands, largely in the National Forest.
