Consultants Council to Host Town Hall November 3, 2021

The Consultants Council is inviting its member firms as well as non-member firms to attend a Town Hall meeting on November 3, 2021 from 12:00- 2:00 p.m. ET. The focus of this Town Hall will be centered around staffing issues. 

The event will kick off with Brandye Hendrickson, current Deputy Executive Director of the Texas DOT, sharing some of her own personal experiences and observations that she has gathered throughout her career.

This will be followed up by two breakout sessions lead by seasoned moderators on the above two topics. Participants will be able to interact in these breakouts by addressing challenges, coming up with workable solutions and sharing information on available resources.

The session will wrap up with an open discussion to identify other issues of major concern to transportation consultants that can be considered for action in 2022 and beyond. Click here for more details on this event.

About the Consultants Council

ITE has created three employer-based councils— Consultants Council, Industry Council, and Public Agency Council—to provide value to the organizations where ITE members work and to bring together leaders in the public and private sector. These three councils work both jointly and independently to shape the strategic direction of ITE and influence the future of the transportation industry.

Members of the Consultants Council are part of a supportive and collaborative environment that include small, medium, and large organizations. Participation in the Consultants Council serves as a springboard toward leadership at the corporate level and offers a wealth of networking opportunities with peers to share insights and experiences. ITE looks to the Consultants Council, along with the Industry and Public Agency Councils, regularly to spearhead dialogue on emerging trends and key issues as well as provide input on organizational needs such as identifying a keynote speaker for the ITE Annual Meeting and Exhibition or facilitating presentations in other venues. While the Consultants Council will identify specific activities or products to develop or offer, it may also join with one or both of the other councils to create programs, products, and services that provide value to ITE members and other transportation professionals.

 Member firms receive an array of benefits, including:

  • Recognition as a leader among transportation consulting firms through all ITE communication channels;
  • Ability to influence the development of new ITE programs, products, and services as well as initiatives in the transportation industry;
  • Connection with other Councils on projects or activities of common interest;
  • Collaboration and mentoring with companies of all sizes and varying resources
  • Member-only networking and peer exchange through ITE’s e-Community;
  • Discounts on access to ITE services such as job postings through the ITE Career Center        


The annual fee to join the ITE Consultants Council is 100% re-invested to support the Council’s products and services. The annual fee is tiered to provide access to firms of all sizes.

  • Sole Proprietorship — $100
  • 2-50 employees — $250
