Bricker, who was let go by the BTA back in November, is now working as a consultant. With his new contract position as Campaign Manager with America Walks, he’ll be responsible for managing their Walking Wins Summit that will be held during the annual Pro Walk/Pro Bike conference coming to Chattanooga, Tennessee in September.
The summit is a project of America Walks and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP). The aim of the summit is to coalesce interest groups to support an action plan they hope will fund walking infrastructure and “thus strengthen American communities and ensure that everyone of all ages and abilities has high-quality walking access to their daily needs.”
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
