We've added 27 members, bringing our total to 252 individual members! We are still a long way from 500, but we are making fair progress to meet our goal by June 15th.
These last two days are a testament to why Bike Austin needs a Membership Coordinator. I spent a few hours putting together the pieces to find funding for Austin metro trail, bikeway, and sidewalk projects. I met with one of our volunteers to upgrade components of our website. I processed a grant application. I've been in communication with numerous members and volunteers. Yesterday was filled with similar tasks. All of this is important work... but I didn't get a chance to send you an email to remind you about the Membership Drive! The Membership Drive is almost a full-time job in itself.
We can get to 500 members and we can make Austin a world-class bicycling city — but only with your support.
