WHO AM I?

I am a devoted transportation professional with over 25 years of experience and passionate about ITE.
I have served ITE at the Section, District, and International levels. My involvement includes recently completing a three year term on the International Board of Direction. Further, I give back to the engineering community as an adjunct professor at the University of Regina.

I intend to build upon the hard work and initiatives already started, and continue to develop ITE as a leading organization in operating and delivering services to its members. I have the desire to see ITE grow and succeed.

GOALS

I will focus on the following 5 areas as ITE International VP:

Communication – we need to reflect how members like to communicate and receive information today. Whether it’s through the ITE Community, social media platforms or cloud-based document sharing, we need to ensure that information is timely, relevant, and readily accessible by our members.

Collaboration – we need to work more closely with other transportation organizations. By sharing knowledge and resources, we can produce technical reference documents faster, at a shared cost, and with full recognition of our members’ contributions.

Knowledge – we also need to streamline the approval and release of technical documents so that valuable resource materials are in our members’ hands quicker.

Growth – we need to grow our membership to remain a healthy, vibrant organization. Key to this growth and our long term stability is developing new student chapters and encouraging highly active sections. We also need to start new sections outside of North America where there is growing interest in ITE membership.

Member development – we need to develop the skills of members, including technical skills, soft skills, and leadership skills. We need well-rounded transportation professionals in our industry; ITE can lead in the growth of our members’ skills.
