AGM speaker announced – Brian Deegan "Going Dutch in London"

This year our speaker will be Brian Deegan, Principal Technical Specialist from Transport for London. Deegan is an engaging and entertaining speaker with a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.

While working for Transport for London and the London Borough of Camden, Deegan became well known as an engineer who understood cycling and who challenged pre-conceptions of street design to create safe space for cycling. He has been a driving force behind London "going Dutch", ensuring quality delivery of the Mayor’s Vision for cycling programme with projects such as the Cycle Super Highways, Mini-Hollands, Quietways and much more. He was also one of the lead authors of the London Cycling Design Standards.

Deegan will take us through the journey of getting community and political buy-in for “going Dutch” and how these schemes get to implementation.

 

Help set the direction of cycling campaigning in Cambridge

Nominations to join the board of trustees closed 21 November.

Could you be our Press officer? Or perhaps our Social Media officer? Maybe cycling policy is your thing? There are plenty of ways that you can help lead our Campaign. Trustees will receive training, attend an induction and planning day and have the ongoing support of our paid officer.

We have progressed leaps and bounds in 2016. We made further improvements to our new membership management system and implemented a new market-leading, easy-to-use accounting system. We refreshed our branding to be more inclusive and we moved into an office that volunteers are welcome to work in. We've set our strategy and budget for the coming years and are building a plan on how to achieve it. It is an exciting time to be involved in the Campaign.

You can find out more about the trustee opportunities online but please don't hesitate to send an email if you would like to discuss this further.

If being a trustee isn't for you, but you would still like to be involved then perhaps participating in one of our dedicated working groups will be of interest. We will be organising these more formally in 2017 to make it easier for volunteers to participate.
