Kempe to head BPSA education committee

Published May 9, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The Bicycle Product Suppliers Association is forming an education committee with Shimano's Andrew Kempe as chair.

The BPSA currently supports three educational programs: the annual Bicycle Leadership Conference, the Charged Up e-bike video training platform, and title sponsorship of the Supplier Seminar Series at Interbike.

"The education committee's goal is to create more impactful programs along the lines of our existing ones," Kempe said. "There's plenty of opportunity to create our own initiatives as well as working with other industry groups."

Fellow BPSA board member and former BLC chair Megan Tompkins, who is the publisher of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, will also join the committee, and three other BPSA members will be asked to participate as well.

For the BPSA's 2018-19 fiscal year, the committee is considering funding proposals from four industry groups: the National Bicycle Dealers Association, Barnett's Bicycle Institute, Project Bike Tech and the Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association.
