We are now accepted applications for both "at-large" members and individuals who are interested in serving on a Taskforce Subcommittee. What does this mean?
Advisory Committee members "at-large": This group includes members of the Advisory Committee that do not serve on specific task force sub-committees but serve in a general role offering opinions and advice on bicycle and pedestrian related issues. Examples include: Transportation and Recreation professionals, elected officials, representatives of partnering organizations and emeritus members of the Bike Walk Mississippi Board.
Task Force Subcommittee members: This group includes individuals who serve on the overall Advisory Committee but focus their efforts around topic-centric issues. These Taskforce oriented committees will work with Bike Walk Mississippi and a Subcommittee chair to determine their own set of goals and outcomes, Chairmen will report these goals for final approval by the Bike Walk Board of Directors. Examples of Task Force Subcommittees include: Complete Streets, Bike/Ped Infrastructure (Trails/Paths/Sidewalks), Pedestrian/Walkability/Running Issues, Bicycle Safety, Bicycle Tourism/USBRS Mountain Biking Issues, Policy, Legislation & MDOT, Safe Routes to Schools & Health). Other Subcommittees will be established as determined by interest and need.
