To support our members in understanding the transportation, organizational and personal impacts of COVID-19, ITE has prepared this COVID-19 resource page. Our goal is to create a one-stop shop where you can get the latest information to help you and your organization respond appropriately. Recognizing there is a lot of information out there from many different sources we are putting our efforts on collecting and curating the best resources we can find. Included are recordings of ITE Drop-in Discussions on COVID-19 related topics. Resources will be updated frequently. If you would like to recommend a resource to us please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.

ITE is hosting Virtual Drop-In sessions as a way for members to engage on a specific topic. These sessions are largely unstructured and begin with a short presentation by a member followed by an online conversation by participants, led by the presenter. The sessions are recorded and are posted for playback in the ITE Library and ITE Member Forum. There is a limit of 25 participants per webinar. Sessions take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
