SFBC SENDS THANKS & WISHES FAREWELL TO MICHAEL CALFEE
We are sad to announce that our longtime Membership Director, Michael Calfee, is leaving the SFBC to pursue other interests. In his 3+ years at the SFBC, Michael has advanced the success of the organization tremendously through his upbeat volunteer management, effective membership recruitment, creative promotional skills, and strong dedication to the cause. Many of you probably know Michael as the organizer of the SFBC's popular Volunteer Nights, as well as Bike to Work Day and other SFBC events. We will miss having his upbeat attitude and energetic spirit around the office, but expect great things from his as he moves on in the new year. Thank you, Michael, for your significant role in helping the SFBC be as successful, strong, and just plain fun as it is.
ANNOUNCING SFBC BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTION RESULTS
Thank you to all of the members who voted in the annual SFBC Board of Directors elections. We congratulate the following top vote-getters who will serve a two-year term on the Board starting in January: John Calaway, Jean Fraser, Brooke Kuhn, Deb Janes, Amandeep ('Deep) Jawa, Ann Lyons, and David Soward. And a special thank you to all of the candidates who ran for the SFBC Board. (This was the most contested Board race in as many years as we can recall.) We look forward to all of the candidates' continued involvement and leadership in the organization. If you are interested in knowing more about the Board's work or service on the Board, please contact Leah Shahum any time at email@example.com. And all Board meetings are open to SFBC members; contact us for more details.
ACTION ON TOP 20 BIKE NETWORK PROJECTS
We're excited to announce that there's action on three of our Top 20 Bike Network projects at the close of the year. We are working closely with Supervisor Chris Daly and the staff of the Dept. of Parking & Traffic to see three important bike lane proposals introduced at the Board of Supervisors. They include Townsend Street, Market Street (between 8th & Castro) and lower Polk St. contra-flow lanes. These are all projects we've been working to gather support for for many months, but we'll still need members' help as things heat up. Stay tuned early next year for more updates!
