The Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) Board of Directors would like to thank Jim Brown, Executive Director of SABA since November 2012, for his service and contributions to the Sacramento area bicycling community. Jim leaves behind an impressive legacy of accomplishments during his time with the organization including aiding in the creation of an updated Bicycle Master Plan in the City of Sacramento, doubling SABA’s operational budget over the course of 6 years, managing our many Safe Routes to Schools programs, among many other achievements. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
We are pleased to welcome Debra Banks as SABA’s Interim Executive Director. She is the owner of Rivet Cycle Works, a boutique bicycle leather saddle and accessory company, and is an avid randonneur. Debra began her involvement with SABA as a member of the Board of Directors. In 2018, she was hired as SABA’s Operations Director to oversee the organization’s contracts and financial matters. Debra is well-positioned to lead SABA’s programs and activities in this transitional period as the Board of Directors works towards a permanent leadership role.
We are excited for another busy year in bicycle advocacy this 2019, and we hope to continue to have your support. Stay tuned for more updates about SABA’s leadership, events, and activities!
