Present a session - 2017 Missouri Active Transportation Summit

The 2017 Missouri Active Transportation Summit is Friday, August 11th, 2017 in Jefferson City. 

Would you like to tell the story of your bicycle, pedestrian, or trails program, project, or success? Or present on any topic related to bicycling, walking, or trails in Missouri? The Summit is soliciting session proposals through midnight on Wednesday, June 28th, 2017.

Presentation requirements and suggestions

We are particularly interested in sessions that include panel presentations or otherwise provide a variety of viewpoints on a particular topic or issue.

We are particularly interested in sessions that speak to one or more of our identified Summit themes:

  • Trail Towns: Preparing your community invite trail and non-motorized tourism and to maximize the benefit of Katy Trail, Rock Island Trail, or other trail tourism and economic development
  • Complete Streets & Liveable Streets in Missouri: Building support for, passing, and implementing your Complete Streets policy
  • Tourism and the economic impact of bicycling, walking, and trails: What is the economic importance of bicycling, walking, and trails to your community, and what can you do to maximize the economic impact to your community and to Missouri?
  • Health and Safety impacts of bicycling, walking, and trails
  • Making bicycling, walking, and trails succeed in rural, suburban, and urban settings, and small, medium, and large communities across Missouri

Sessions are 40-50 minutes long and should include time for audience Q&A or other audience interaction.

If you have a shorter presentation in mind, please submit it! We can combine two more more related shorter presentations into one session.

We hope to have funding to cover Summit Registration for presenters.

Suggestion: Write & edit your summit title, summary, and bio information offline and copy/paste into this form. That way you have an editable copy you can save, and your work will not be lost in case something goes awry on form submission.
