Board of Directors - (Interim)

Trips for Kids is looking for Board members! Even though our flagship chapter, Trips for Kids-Marin, has been in operation for 30 years and 75 chapters have sprung up organically since then, the national umbrella organization is just getting started, as of August 2017. We are waiting for our formal 501(c)3 approval from the IRS, but in the meantime we are building our first Board of Directors. The interim Board listed below is in place until we reach that goal.

If you have an interest in helping to enrich the lives of kids through bicycling, please consider applying to join the new Trips for Kids National Board of Directors.

To learn about the roles and responsibilities of Trips for Kids board members, please read our Board Member Position Description
