Six years. That's a chunk of time to devote as a volunteer to the Bicycle Alliance--and we are so appreciative of Jennifer's generosity with her time. We are also very fortunate that there are others like her who give us many hours over a span of years.
For instance, there's Dave Shaw. Dave has donated his time as our database guru for many years, is a current contributor to our blog, and has served on our Board of Directors. There's Rebecca Slivka, another Seattle native. She has been our volunteer webmaster, among other things. Or David McCulloch of Port Townsend, who has helped us advocate for signed bicycle routes, bike imrovements to the Hood Canal Bridge, and served on our Legislative & Statewide Issues Committee. You can read about these good folks and others featured under the Volunteer Spotlight section of the our website.

Some volunteers rise to the top as leaders for the Bicycle Alliance of Washington--our Board of Directors. These committed individuals create our vision, set our agenda, and ensure that we have adequate human and financial resources to accomplish our work. They are passionate about our work and many devote an extraordinary amount of time to the organization. Saying thank you seems inadequate, but it is a sincere thank you!
