EBBC 2009 Retreat

EBBC’s overnight weekend Annual Retreat will be held at the Hidden Villa Hostel, 26870 Moody Rd, Los Altos Hills.

Hope everyone made it home OK from the Retreat

Thanks everyone for a great Annual Retreat!

2009 EBBC Campaigns, responsibilities for our new staff person, improved communications between coalition organizations, new web tools, great Italian food, yummy pancakes and the best weather ever for our retreat–there’s lots to report. But first, thanks to everyone for helping out with supplies, food, cooking and cleaning. It’s was definitely a team effort.

Robert Raburn is going to followup with our advocacy leaders, I will craft a draft job description for our new staff person, work will continue on fine tuning our membership database, and everyone has the opportunity to jump on the red hot issue of the Federal Stimulus Package–applications due February 9 by your local cities.

For those considering launching a career in music, after our impromptu jam session at the end of the Triplets movie, good luck. Everyone else, ride safe, tell your friends about our bicycle safety classes, and start getting ready for Bike to Work Day, May 14, 2009.

Thanks again and please join us for our next General Meeting, Tuesday, February 17, 7:30-9:30pm at the Oakland Rockridge Library. Our guest speaker is Nathan Landau of AC Transit, who will present findings from AC Transit’s bicycle parking study and solicit your ideas for improving bike-bus access in the East Bay.
