Region’s Largest Bike Advocacy Group Looking for New Executive

The region’s largest bicycle advocacy organization, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, is searching for a new executive director. Following the wildly successful 7-year tenure of Jennifer Klausner, the LACBC is in good shape, with a solid fundraising base and chapters throughout the county. The staff is filled with advocacy all-stars. The calendar is filled with LACBC rides, workshops, parties and other events.

In short, it’s a pretty sweet gig. A rewarding gig that requires a lot of work, but a sweet gig. But if you want it, you have to hurry. The deadline get an application in is, well, today.

Long Beach actually doesn’t have an LACBC chapter, despite being home to a handful of bike advocacy groups, LACBC Board Member April Economides and CalBike Board Member Charlie Gandy.

While LACBC is looking for a senior non-profit manager who happens to love bicycling and as much as I love the City of Los Angeles, it would be interesting and exciting to see a new executive director from one of our most bike-friendly cities.

    The LACBC is definitely interested in having a Long Beach chapter. The reason it doesn’t yet is because its chapter program is so popular that other cities have been long in the queque (before I joined the board in January 2013). It will happen!
