Need Advice?

If you’re considering starting a local organization, local Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, or Bike Repair Co-op, you may find answers in this Webinar or our advice for tips.  In addition, staff is available to field questions (contact Amy here) or our Board with your questions, since we have vast experience and networks working in the local movement to improve the safety and convenience of biking and walking, and we hope to see more of these local advocacy organizations and Advisory Committees around SC.

Remember that an Advisory Committees cannot advocate, though they are essential for funneling public input into community planning.  Advocacy organizations can advocate, educate, and do limited lobbying, even as 501-c3 non profit organizations.
