COUNCIL IMPACT AWARDS

 

Purpose

The ITE Council Impact Awards seek to recognize individuals and organizations for outstanding contributions to the transportation industry and the communities they serve.

ITE’s six area-of-practice technical councils are the technical engine of ITE, providing relevant research and resources to actively contribute to the body of knowledge in their areas of discipline.

  • Complete Streets
  • Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO)
  • Traffic Engineering
  • Planning
  • Safety
  • Education

Additionally, ITE has three employer councils—the Public Agency, Consultants, and Industry Councils.

ITE Councils work to advance the knowledge and practice in their disciplines, and the Council Impact Awards seek to recognize those professionals and/or organizations who have demonstrated excellence in the following core focus areas:

  • Innovative activities and contributions in the practice of transportation engineering and planning
  • Advancement and implementation of TSMO and ITS technologies
  • Leadership and innovation in advancing traffic safety programs, initiatives, or technologies
  • Unique and successful educational programming and resources for student engagement
  • Dedication and commitment to transportation in the community
  • Demonstrated commitment to incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of transportation
