Over the last two years ITE has gone through its most significant change in decades. The hiring of
our first new Executive Director in nearly 40 years has given us the opportunity to reexamine and
modernize the way our organization operates. We have adopted Constitutional changes that broaden
our membership and reform our election process. We have laid out a new Strategic Plan that charts our
path to the future in the key areas of membership, technical programs, and institutional sustainability.
We have opened up new lines of communication between leadership at all levels of the organization,
and the collaboration between ITE Headquarters and our Districts, Sections, and Chapters has been
significantly strengthened. We are delivering technical products faster and have created new initiatives
that place us at the forefront of the changes happening within our profession. Our collective voice is
being heard louder and more effectively than it has been in years.
The results are beginning to show. Our membership is growing and has topped 15,000 for the first
time in 7 years. Attendance at our International Annual Meeting and Exhibit has doubled over the last
two years. We have added many new student chapters, topping 150 in existence, and in 2018 there will
be four student-led ITE Student Leadership Summits.
We are attracting new partners, both in the United States and abroad. We have established new
collaborations with U.S. organizations like the National Association of City Transportation Officials
(NACTO), the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, and the American Public Health
Association and, internationally, with sister organizations in the United Kingdom, Korea, and Greece.
There is new energy, excitement, and opportunity in our organization, and our prospects for the
future are bright. To maintain that momentum and build off of it, now is the time to examine our
operational structure to make sure we are best positioned to deliver a consistent member experience.
This is one of the key goals contained within our new Strategic Plan.
I have established a new "One ITE" Board Task Force, led by International Director Dan Beatty to
advance this goal. This task force will:
* Implement the 2017 Constitutional changes in the area of membership,
* Identify opportunities to streamline the ITE structure, reduce inconsistencies, and
minimize bureaucracy,
* Clarify the roles and responsibilities of ITE HQ, Districts, Sections, and Chapters, and
* Create opportunities for ITE HQ to better serve our members through the Districts, Sections,
and Chapters.
It will take this task force some time to systematically examine our organizational structure,
operating guidelines, and member value. This Board Task Force will be engaging with elected
leadership at the District, Section, and Chapter level as it conducts its work and will be keeping
members informed as their work progresses.
We are in a time of tremendous change in our industry and one of opportunity for ITE. We must
continue the positive momentum we have started. If we do, I am confident that ITE will be the
professional organization of choice for transportation professionals across North America and globally.
Through this new task force, we are taking another step further in becoming "One ITE" as part of our
work Leading the Way.
