Emily Boedecker, Executive Director of Local Motion in Vermont, will be the guest speaker at our Annual Meeting. Here's a little bit about Emily:
Local Motion, a member-supported walk-bike advocacy organization, announced that, after a national search, it appointed Emily Boedecker as its new Executive Director. Ms. Boedecker comes to Local Motion from the Vermont Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, where she served for over nine years as Director of Communications, Director of Philanthropy and Marketing, Deputy State Director, and Acting State Director. Ms. Boedecker assumed her role at the helm of Local Motion on March 3, 2014.
Upon accepting the offer to become Executive Director, Ms. Boedecker noted the breadth of issues that Local Motion is engaged in. “I already knew about (and have long loved) the Trailside Center and the Bike Ferry,” she said. “But Local Motion does so much more, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the full breadth of its contributions to the community. From Bike Recycle Vermont to Kohl’s Kids Bike Smart to Complete Streets Technical Assistance, Local Motion really goes the extra mile for active recreation and transportation. This is a first class organization and I am delighted to be joining the team.”
Emily will tell the story of Local Motion's start and evolution.
