ITE recognizes the importance of connecting with the organizations that the majority of our members work for—public agencies, industry, consultants—so that we can be in tune with the needs of these organizations as well as our individual members.
During 2020, ITE transitioned to an organization-based model for its Industry, Consultants, and Public Agency Councils.
The objective of these councils is to provide the private sector, consultancies, and public agencies with the opportunity to provide input on ITE’s programming and policies while also demonstrating their commitment to and leadership in the transportation industry.
These employer councils are independent but interconnected groups that serve to broaden and strengthen the bonds, engage senior leadership, and help the profession prepare for the future. Each council will have its own executive committee populated by senior level representatives from member organizations and representation on the ITE Board of Direction as well as opportunities to collaborate with the other councils. In addition, each council will have exclusive benefits for their member organizations.
Chair: Gene Chartier, P. Eng.
Vice Chair: Hardik Shah, P.E.
Immediate Past Chair: Amir Rizavi, P.E.
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.
