The Iowa Bicycle Coalition has a district leader program to connect with legislators. District leaders actively seek meetings with elected officials in their areas to talk about bicycling issues. The goal is to have one district leader for each house and senate district. This ensures a voter/bicyclist from the legislators district has a line of communications. The bulk of communications will take place during the fall, following the November election and during the legislative session from January to May.
The Coalition will hold several video conferences prior to the session to discuss strategy and train district leaders on message. Video conferences will generally be held on Fridays during the session.
If you are interested in becoming a district leader for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Current members can select “Become a district leader” in their online profile.
