Why I Volunteer for NYBC – by Lisa Schmidtfrerick-Miller
NYBC is the ONLY statewide organization representing cyclists and promoting cycling in New York. If we are to improve conditions for all cyclists across New York State, NYBC needs our help. Whether you have one hour or 100, there are ways you can build and strengthen NYBC. Members of my local “ladies night biking” group recently helped NYBC to update a database of their member clubs, and we had fun doing it.
What can volunteers do?
Inform NYBC about what is happening in your community around bicycling, so we can share success and innovation and also address threats to safe cycling.
Do you enjoy speaking with other cyclists? Offer to represent and promote NYBC at bicycling events in your part of the state.
Those of you who are great with spreadsheets and other programs could help NYBC in a number of ways, from the comfort of your home computer!
Submit an article for the NYBC E-news or website.
Increase the visibility of NYBC by asking club and event websites to link to NYBC’s website, sign up for the NYBC E-News and like them on Facebook
If you’d like to help, or have other ideas to strengthen and build NYBC, contact Brian Kehoe, Executive Director (518-436-0889 or firstname.lastname@example.org) I speak from experience when I say that he will greatly appreciate your interest and your help.
