Earlier this month, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) welcomed five new members to their Board of Directors. This brings the total up to 22 people on this important advisory body. You may not realize it, but the BTA Board has a major influence on the organization’s tone, focus, and direction.
As the BTA gears up for the upcoming legislative session and a possible transportation funding measure in 2016, their board’s decisions could have a huge impact on bicycling in Portland and throughout the state.
The new board members are: Lanny Gower, licensing and operating tax manager for Con-way Freight, Inc.; Valerie Hoyle, formerly with Burley Design, now an Oregon State legislator representing west Eugene; Lois Moss, a former bike shop owner who founded and directed Walk+Roll Cleveland; Dennis Mulvihill, a retired government relations manager for Washington County; and Justin Yuen, President of local software company FMYI (For My Innovation).
