FOR INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT
ITE has experienced significant change over the last
several years, and now is the time to capitalize on
the strong base our leaders have established.
The following elements are the recipe for
sustainable expansion.
Foster Our Legacy - We need
to nurture the energy, diversity,
and enthusiasm seen within the
student chapters and facilitate
student transition into full
membership. Our duty is to create
an environment where current
leaders help develop future
leaders and where opportunity is
distributed across the Institute.
Embrace Diversity - Variety in experience,
opinion, and thought generate well rounded,
whole ideas that support our goal of transportation
for all. This means including diverse voices in our
conferences, in technical product creation, and in
leadership development. In addition, we need to
create products that are useful to a diverse local and
international membership in a format they prefer.
Create Opportunity - ITE is most valuable to
those who fully partake in what the organization has
to offer. This can be achieved by offering numerous
and varied volunteer opportunities with a duration
range that matches the availability of our members.
Delivering products in a timely fashion helps
participants see that their efforts are immediately
valuable and useful.
Sponsor and Encourage - It's not enough to get
people to a conference or a luncheon, they must
feel welcome and want to return for the next event.
That requires leaders to encourage event attendee
participation, actively match members with projects,
and sponsor promising individuals for roles in the
organization. Reaching even just a few people can
have a large effect on long-term participation.
From professional development to the creation of
lifelong friendships, ITE has been the catalyst for so
much personal growth and opportunity. I've been
fortunate to serve in elected positions at the student,
Chapter, Section, District, and international levels and
to work in academia, consulting, and public service.
That offers a perspective into ITE membership of all
types. I am so honored to have an opportunity to
give back to ITE.
