Opening on the Bicycle Advisory Council

BAC currently has an opening as a Ward 1 representative. This unpaid, volunteer position is open to residents of the District currently living in Ward 1 who are enthusiastic about bicycling, talk with the public and policy makers about bicycling and are able to attend six general and six committee meetings each year.

Those interested in becoming BAC members should first contact the office of the Ward 1 Council Member, Jim Graham or the DDOT Bicycle Program Specialist,  Mike Goodno.

Applicants are encouraged to attend a BAC Committee meeting in April or a meeting of the entire BAC in May. Dates for those will be posted as they become available on this site. In the meantime, feel free to contact the BAC Chairperson, Ellen Jones, by email ellenbethjones@gmail.com.

As required for all those who sit on boards or commissions, you must complete an Application for Legislative Appointment. The application should include a current resume or biographical sketch. 

In addition, you may also need to submit a waiver form allowing the Office of Boards and Commission to verify compliance with District tax filing requirements. These documents would be submitted to your Council Member as part of the review process. Thanks for your interest and good luck.
