BPSA and PeopleForBikes boards vote to merge organizations

From Bicycle Retailer and Industry News

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The boards of the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association and PeopleForBikes Coalition have each voted to merge the organizations. The merger must still be approved by a vote of all BPSA members.

The two nonprofit trade organizations began discussing the merger about 18 months ago.

“Our boards, senior staff and attorneys have met regularly to develop a new set of proposed bylaws and a merger plan to support a new, unified organization that will provide powerful, comprehensive representation and improved service to our industry,” the groups said in a joint letter to members Monday.

The BPSA board voted to approve the merger last week. The PeopleForBikes board voted Monday morning. The letter said the votes were “almost unanimous.”

The BPSA member vote will begin Thursday at the Bicycle Leadership Conference in Monterey, California, for companies who are present; the remainder of companies will be emailed an electronic vote after the event.
