Do you have an interest in bike riding? Would you like to get more involved in shaping the future of our city? Then serving on the Medford Bicycle Advisory Commission (MBAC) might be for you.
What does a Commission member do?
Members keep themselves informed about bike-related issues that relate to our community and commit to attending our monthly MBAC meetings which are held from 7–9 p.m. on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
At our meetings we:
We make decisions by putting motions forward and voting on them. Voting can only take place if we have a quorum greater than half our members present, so a commitment to regular attendance and full participation by all members is very important.
What skills are needed?
All sorts of skills and experience can be put to use. Current and past members have come from fields such as transportation and urban planning, software engineering, marketing and communications and journalism, however specific professional experience is not a requirement. Being a parent, a student or having lived in another part of the country or the world can also provide much needed perspectives.
Most importantly, people of all ages, genders, backgrounds and abilities ride bikes—and we want the commission to reflect that diversity. We need people who enjoy cycling, want to share their knowledge and are committed to making our city the best that it can be.
