Happy New Year, ITE Community! It’s hard to imagine that our last in-person event was the vendor show two and a half years ago. While not seeing engaged faces in person has been difficult, our section has hosted some incredible virtual events, taking advantage of the remote meetings. We’ve seen more consistent attendance with a wide variety of speakers presenting to our group. When we do go back to in-person meetings, we plan to offer a hybrid option. As transportation professionals, we all know how difficult it can be to commute across our section, which spans from San Luis Obispo to Simi Valley and beyond. Virtual platforms have made it easier than ever to stay connected and take advantage of the services and webinars ITE provides.
I want to thank our members for continuing to support ITE and remain active in their community and their profession. If there’s anything we can do for you, or if you would like to become more involved with the Board, please contact me. Here’s to a healthy and safe 2022!
The ITE Western District recently release the 2022 Request for Proposals (RFP) for Student Projects. This year’s RFP is focused on STEM outreach projects, instead of the traditional trip generation data collection project. However, the SLO student chapter project team needs a professional mentor who can work with them.
This is a great opportunity for the SLO student chapter to earn some money to support their chapter activities (up to four student chapters will be awarded $1,000 each).
Proposals will need to be sent to the Western District by Friday December 17 at 5pm Pacific Time. If you are interested in learning more or assisting the SLO student chapter please contact Jason Ng, Chapter Secretary.
