2018 Candidates for International Board

The future of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and the direction and course of its programs and activities are greatly influenced by the leaders you elect to represent you. We encourage you to exercise your right to shape ITE’s future by casting your vote to select the 2019 ITE International President and International Vice President.

ITE has launched new election procedures due to the Constitutional Amendments that were passed in 2017. These changes include:

  • Length of the campaign. Rather than in previous years when campaigning took place during District and Section meetings, the ITE 2018 Election will now conclude in time for successful candidates to attend these meetings as International President-elect and Vice-President-elect.
  • New time frame for balloting. The Election Ballot will be live on February 14 and voting will begin on February 15 at 12:01 a.m. ET. The ballot closes on Thursday, March 15 at noon ET.
  • New campaign conduct rules. The Nominations Committee has established new campaign conduct rules for candidates and ITE members.
  • Increased electronic and virtual candidate information.
