Dates set for 2013 Oregon Active Transportation Summit

Posted by on January 23rd, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Hope you plan to join us for the 2013 Oregon Active Transportation Summit down in Salem. Check out the latest announcement about the event below:

Save the dates: April 24-25 for Oregon Active Transportation Summit 2013

Now in its third year encompassing all of active transportation, the Active Transportation Summit is taking a two-pronged approach to shaping our transportation future. On Day One of the conference we’ll hear from influential and inspiring speakers, and expand our knowledge in breakout sessions. On Day Two everyone will gather for a motivational meeting, and then some attendees will take issues directly to legislators in the State Capitol, while others attend committee meetings and breakout sessions.

Four areas of focus
This year’s summit will home in on four main subject areas integral to active transportation:
• The Fight for Funding
• Planning Tools
• Invaluable Information
• Examples that Work

Within this framework, you’ll find specific sessions topics including health and equity, the economics of the industry, transit design, mapping tools and rural travel. You’ll hear dynamic speakers from advocacy groups, governmental organizations, private industry and tourism. It’s the best collection of transportation minds you’ll find in one room all year.

Mark your calendar now – we’ll notify you by e-mail when registration opens.
