September 7th 2020 UPDATE

Dear colleagues

On September 4th, the Modeshift Board took the decision to postpone the November 2020 convention in Leicester.

Whilst this is unfortunate for our members and partners, we are delighted to bring to you an Autumn webinar series. Starting later this month, we will host a return to school webinar with Sustrans, Living Streets and the Bikeability trust. This will be followed by two webinars in October and a final webinar in November. These webinars will feature a number of presentations that were planned for the convention and we want to thank all our speakers for being flexible and offering to either speak this year or in 2021.

On the afternoon of November 5th, we will deliver our AGM, our National Awards and a presentation from the DfT. Please put a hold in your diary from 3-5pm, especially if you are shortlisted for an award and look out for our award voting opening soon!

The webinars are free to attend and will be taking place online via Microsoft Teams.

August 3rd 2020 UPDATE

Dear Members

2020 Convention update

On behalf of the Modeshift Management Board, I wanted to personally write to our members and partners and outline our position and next steps in relation to the 2020 convention in Leicester.

Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been able to deliver our face to face services online and now we must consider how we best deliver our AGM, convention and awards programme.

I have spoken to the Athena Centre and hotels (reserved for overnight guests) and secured time to allow Modeshift to develop an alternate plan for our members and partners. The agenda we have lined up for November is quite substantial, we now need some time in the coming weeks to discuss with our speakers and formulate a new plan.

By the start of September, we will share this plan with you. At that time, we will also include information about your membership/partner fee. As you are aware, our member subscription includes a convention package and we will take that into account when planning for this year and next. For our partners, we will contact you all in the coming weeks as you have signed up to different packages with us.

So, please hold tight, we know a face to face event this year is not likely (it saddens me deeply to say that), but rather than say its cancelled and we’ll see you next year, we will instead present to you our alternate 2020 convention programme.

Please be safe, enjoy the summer holidays and I look forward to catching up with you all again soon.

Ross Butcher
National Chair of Modeshift
