National Bike Summit – Save Cycling
March 20-22, 2012
The Grand Hyatt 1000 H Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20001.
** See Note about registration
State Coordinators for Ohio: As in 2011, Jeff Stephens and Jody Dzuranin will serve in this role again. Once you register for the Summit, we will set up meetings with your Senators and District Representatives (or their surrogate). We will make the greatest impact if we have at least one delegate from all of Ohio's 18 districts. Assuming we have some of the same folks as last year, that said, the districts who do NOT have a delegate yet are (Ohio Districts: 4 5 6 7 8 10 11 13 14 17 18 ). Even better if we have more than one delegate from each district – so please come! We had a nice balance of industry and advocacy professionals last year, so hopefully that will be the case again.
Please share this link http://www.considerbiking.org/2012-national-bike-summit/ or QR Code about the Summit with any new delegates who may want to attend this year! It is so important!
** Please register using an address in your correct district, if the registration address is not in your home district, please send a note to Jody with your home address so your meeting will be scheduled with the correct Representative.
Come to DC, speak up for bicycling and enjoy the company of others who appreciate the biking culture.
See you then!
- Jody and Jeff
