National Partnership Conference Registration Ends Aug. 5th

If you’re thinking about joining more than 500 advocates and leaders for the 3rd Safe Routes to School National Conference, we encourage you to register online by Friday, August 5, 2011, which is the date that on-line registration closes. This anticipated event is taking place August 16–18 in Minneapolis, MN, so register online today for only $350! After August 5 there will be an opportunity for walk-in registration on-site at the same rate.

Excitement is building for the Safe Routes to School National Conference, and with good reason. Here are some of the exciting details you’ll find at saferoutesconference.org:

  • In-depth descriptions of mobile workshops and the opportunity to pre-register to secure your spot
  • An updated conference agenda, with full details about topic sessions, mixer sessions and breakout sessions
  • National and international keynote speakers, including:
  • Victor Mendez, administrator, Federal Highway Administration
  • Paul Osborne, director, Sustrans, (the UK’s leading sustainable transport nonprofit to help increase walking and bicycling)
  • Former U.S. Representative James Oberstar, father of the Safe Routes to School movement
  • Jamie Bussel, MPH, program officer, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • Deb Hubsmith, director, Safe Routes to School National Partnership
  • Lauren Marchetti, director, National Center for Safe Routes to School
  • Kimberly White, youth bicycling advocate and keynote speaker at January’s Youth Bike Summit
  • John Robert Smith, president and CEO, Reconnecting America and co-chair of Transportation for America
  • Sue Wollan Fan, president, Catalyst Community Partners

If you are in Minneapolis on Monday, August 15, you won’t want to miss out on the Safe Routes to School National Partnership’s free Annual Meeting, taking place from 1-5pm. The theme is “Building the Movement”. You can register for the Annual Meeting at the same time that you register for the conference. We are also hosting a Safe Routes Social from 5-6:30pm, directly after our Annual Meeting. This will be a great opportunity to network with other Safe Routes to School enthusiasts from across the country.

Be sure to include the hashtag – #SRTSconf – in your tweets leading up to and throughout the Safe Routes to School National Conference. And, if you don’t already, follow the Safe Routes to School National Partnership on Twitter.

We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis!
