Letter from the President - December 2015
Thursday, December 17, 2015
Greetings T&DI Community Members,
I am pleased to assume the position of T&DI President for the upcoming year. I am fortunate to follow in the footsteps of my predecessors and to be surrounded by a wealth of diverse and highly experienced members of the T&DI Board of Governors, our Council Chairs, the leaders of our Committees, as well as each and every member of the T&DI community. It is a challenge to which I am looking forward and appreciate the support of the T&DI Board of Governors and membership as we continue to work to be recognized as the global leaders in providing sustainable transportation and development.
I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to past-President, Brian McKeehan, P.E., M.ASCE, for his leadership of T&DI this past year. We have seen a 27% increase in T&DI's Continuing Education webinars, including a 12-fold rise in committee-originated webinars; the launch of a Texas T&DI Chapter and two new Graduate Student Chapters; creation of a new Continuing Education Committee; a very successful International Airfield & Highway Pavements Conference held in Miami, Florida in June 2015; and execution of promotional support agreements with 12 leading transportation and development organizations to help promote ICTD 2016. What a great year!
We have exciting events planned for the next year and I hope each of you has an opportunity to connect with fellow T&DI community members at at least one of these events.
International Conference on Automated People Movers and Automated Transistor Systems
Toronto, Canada April 17-20, 2016
ASCE International Conference on Transportation & Development, Houston
Texas June 26-29, 2016

I hope you find an activity of interest and become engaged in our community.
