IPBA Hires Executive Director

Idaho Pedestrian and Bicycle Alliance (IPBA) is pleased to announce the hiring of its first Executive Director, Whitney Rearick. Rearick has worked for many years as a policy analyst and advocacy director for nonprofits in Idaho and Utah and brings to IPBA years of experience in fundraising, community organizing and planning. She holds degrees from Lehigh and Tufts Universities and is a long-time pedestrian and bike commuter whose favorite bike, a Motobecane, originally belonged to Rearick’s mother, who commuted to work on the bike during the 1970s.

IPBA was formed after a Statewide Conference on Active Transportation held at Boise State University in 2009. Conference participants agreed that Idaho needs a unified voice to educate, connect and engage around active transportation statewide. A top priority is adopting "Complete Streets"
policies that promote streets designed to safely provide for all users.

Idaho Pedestrian and Bicycle Alliance connects and informs proponents of active transportation in communities large and small, in every part of Idaho. IPBA has received a major challenge grant from the Alliance for Biking and Walking (ABW).
It will match all funds raised by IPBA through grants, memberships and donations. Groups, organization and individuals are invited to join IPBA by signing up at www.idahopedbike.org.

Now is a great time to join or donate! Follow us on Twitter (@idahopedbike) and Facebook.
