2024 Strategic Directions Call + Member Networking


JANUARY 30th, 2024 2 PM ET

Each year, the NABSA Board and staff put member feedback to work by incorporating it into strategic directions for the coming year. On January 30th, NABSA hosted a member event announcing our strategic directions for 2024 and offering members an opportunity to meet and connect. 

Check out these highlights from the event:

  • 2030 Roadmap – NABSA board and staff are currently working together to create a 2030 roadmap vision for how we aspire to grow and continue delivering great value to our members by 2030.
  • Advocacy – In 2024, NABSA plans to continue to work on increasing funding and support for shared micromobility at the federal levels in the US and Canada. This includes a focus on 2026 Reauthorization Policies in the US and the Permanent Public Transit Fund in Canada. 
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging – NABSA is excited to again partner with the Better Bike Share Partnership to complement our new toolkit, Building a Better Shared Micromobility Industry: Best Practices for More Diverse and Inclusive Workplaces, to produce shared micromobility workplace video vignettes. Additionally, we will complete the translation of the toolkit to French and expand the concept of belonging in our DEIB initiatives. 
  • Public Funding for Shared Micromobility – NABSA will be hosting a webinar on February 29th at 2pm ET discussing how public organizations in Canada and the United States are putting dollars into shared micromobility, and advocating for eligibility of public funds for shared micromobility. Details coming soon!
