New data adds job creation to
the many benefits of bicycle infrastructure

2010 BCNM Annual Report
BCNM Members and Supporters:
The BCNM Board of Directors have compiled our first ever Annual Report, which can be accessed here detailing BCNM's many successful initiatives over the past two years.
We've only just begun!
But in order to continue to advocate for bicyclists throughout the state, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Your tax-deductable donation (check or paypal) will help us meet our fundraising goal of $40,000 to hire an Executive Director in 2011. We truly appreciate you including BCNM in your end-of-year tax-deductable donations.
Thank you for your support! And pass this along to anyone you think might be supportive of BCNM's work!
Board of Directors
A Message From Diane Albert, LAB Board Candidate
I believe that I am a good fit to serve on the League board. I have a proven track record of being an effective leader and a results-driven advocate for bicycling locally and state-wide. I am an avid bicycle commuter, indoor cycling instructor, and recreational cyclist. I currently serve as President of the Bicycle Coalition of New Mexico (BCNM).
I’ve studied the legal and cultural issues pertaining to cyclists’ right to fair and equitable treatment, focusing on the Bicycle Equity Statement and the six Es approach. I am knowledgeable concerning League activities and programs: I am an LCI, was the state coordinator for and attended the 2010 National Bike Summit, and I served as treasurer of the 2010 National Bicycle Rally.
My main focus as a LAB Board Member would be to fulfill the League of American Bicyclists mission “To promote bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation and work through advocacy and education for a bicycle-friendly America” and to serve League members. If elected, I could address the current geographic gap in the LAB Board by contributing my lessons learned while serving bicyclists in the southwest US the past 17 years.
My vision for LAB is: the League of American Bicyclists will be the preeminent bicycle advocacy group in the United States and will provide outstanding service to its members by being accessible, visible, and effective.
I am a registered patent attorney with a PhD in Materials Science. My solo Intellectual Property law practice is located in Albuquerque.
