It's the time of year for our Annual General Meeting and autumn bike social! Join us to mix and mingle with fellow Ottawa cyclists over food and drink, hear from some great speakers, and—for Bike Ottawa members—participate in the official business of our AGM.
What's on the agenda?
Doors will open at 5:30pm. Complementary food and non-alcoholic drinks will be available, and we've applied for a licence to sell some alcoholic beverages as well. Meet fellow cyclists and check out some booths featuring Bike Ottawa and partner organizations.
Speakers will begin at 6:00pm, including:
- Mayor Jim Watson with opening remarks
- Keynote speaker Robin Mazumder will join us from Waterloo
- Lana Stewart on biking and the "big commute"
- Karl Saidla on advocacy best practices
- Jamie Stuckless with updates on cycling in Ontario
We’ll also be announcing the winners from our Membership Drive, as well as our volunteer awards.
Bike Ottawa official business will begin at 8:30pm, after a break.
Who can attend?
Anyone--that means you--can join us for the social and speakers. It’s free, but please register so that we can plan for seating and catering. You don’t need to print your tickets.
Bike Ottawa members can participate in the official business portion of the AGM beginning at 8:30pm. Note that you must have been a member for a full calendar month in order to vote.
How can I join Bike Ottawa or renew my membership?
If you’re not a member yet, or if you need to renew, now is a great time to do so: we strongly encourage you to join or renew online to avoid line-ups during the event. New members who join and existing members who recruit others before September 22nd will also have a chance to win some awesome prizes as a part of our membership drive.
We hope to see you on October 2nd! Don't forget to register.
