The core of NACTO’s mission is to build a strong network of peers and foster open communication and collaboration between cities. NACTO provides its members valuable technical assistance, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, and forums for sharing best practices. Through its annual Designing Cities conference, on-the-ground Cities for Cycling Road Shows, targeted street design workshops, and virtual design charrettes, NACTO offers its member cities opportunities to showcase new projects, receive feedback from their peers, explore common challenges, and learn from shared experiences.
Affiliate Members gain access to a network of similarly sized cities, and also learn from larger cities with robust sustainable transportation programs. City officials who become Affiliate Members of NACTO can serve on the urban bicycle design guide review and advisory committees, participate in peer-to-peer network activities, receive regular updates on the Cities for Cycling project, and apply for travel assistance to events. For NACTO, a diverse group of Affiliate Members broadens the reach of our best practices work to include smaller cities that are on the cutting edge.
Affiliates’ dues are paid annually. The NACTO board will be asked to approve cities for membership once they apply. Affiliate membership fees for 2015 are $6,000 for jurisdictions with population over 300,000 and $4,000 for jurisdictions with population below 300,000.
