More than 17,000 members of ITE are on the leading edge of issues through their participation in ITE’s special interest councils. There are currently 6 technical councils for members to subscribe and participate in the ITE Community website.
In addition, ITE has 3 organization-based employer councils designed to engage with senior level respresentatives and for these organizations with the opportunity to provide input on ITE’s programming and policies while also demonstrating their commitment to leadership in the transportation industry.
The Education Council and committees on Data, Equity and Ethics provide members opportunities to get involved in cross-cutting issues along with Board Committees on Diversity and Inclusion, Women in ITE and STEM. Members interested in being part of any of these Councils or committees are encouraged to contact the Council or committee chair.
Members subscribed to each of these special interest councils (listed in the right hand column of this webpage) on ITE Community will have access to real-time discussions, informal presentations/reports, documents, newsletters, blogs, and call for volunteers and project updates that cover emerging trends, proposed legislation and regulation. Members are provided micro volunteer opportunities and the chance to engage with individuals who play key roles in cutting edge topics of interest to the membership. Join here!
Benefits of Subscribing
|Subscribing to any of the six area-of-practice technical councils on the ITE Community also provides opportunities to be instrumental in developing technical products and to actively contribute to the body of knowledge in a discipline. ITE council leadership welcomes members’ identification of the most important transportation issues to address, and suggestions for products that should be developed to assist in solving them.|
The International Board of Direction has identified specific goals and objectives in the Strategic Plan that ITE will focus on during the year. This focus will be reflected in the projects and programs offered by the councils. These emphasis areas include elimination of road fatalities, sustainable transportation for communities, an efficient transportation system that serves all users and transportation workforce development, along with a variety of additional issues important to ITE members.
