questions asked by the board members. He
also helps keep the webmaster up-to-date
on information that should be on the Midwestern District website. He is authorized
to do banking and make purchases, such
as awards, on behalf of the District. Shortly
after he started as administrator, it became
apparent that the banking wasn't working,
so he moved the banking from Chicago, IL,
USA to a bank close to his house in Minnesota so he could just walk in the door and
get things done quickly.
Campbell worked for 42 years for the
Minnesota Department of Transportation. Upon graduating, he knew he liked
structures and thought that working in the
bridge department would be his career. But
the Minnesota Highway Department had
a rotation program for newly hired engineers-for the first two years, they were
rotated every six months through different
offices. His rotation through the traffic
engineering department sold him on the
importance of traffic engineering, and he
never looked back.
He remembers wondering in 1983 why
anyone would ever want the position of
ITE District director, simply because of the
amount of work. In 1995, his District asked
him to run. After much thought and encouragement, he agreed. "That was probably the
best decision of my career. Those three years
were a fantastic experience getting to know
many super people all around the ITE community," he says. "I can't emphasize enough
that everyone should take the opportunity
to network at all the ITE meetings. My
recommendation to people is to help and
volunteer-if asked, say 'YES!'" itej

Did You Know?
The Midwestern District has nine chapters, the most of any ITE District. All nine Chapters are part of the
MOVITE Section. Due to ONE ITE, most of these nine Chapters will become Sections in the new MOVITE
District. The remainder of the Midwestern District Sections will join Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio to form
the new Great Lakes District.

Historical Perspective
*	 The Midwestern District began in 1947 as the Midwest Section. The Chicago-area membership
represented approximately 10 percent of the national membership at the time, and a group of
traffic engineers met on the 38th floor of the Opera Building in the Electrical Club to discuss the
organization of a Section.
*	 Membership included the following states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska,
Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Indiana. The ITE Board of Direction approved the Charter
and Bylaws on June 19, 1947.
*	 As the membership of ITE grew, it became apparent that the Midwest Section included too large
a geographical area to be a section. The Section was eventually reorganized in 1951 and split into
other groups, including the Indiana Section and the MOVITE Section. Indiana became part of District
3. The MOVITE Section continued to be part of Midwestern District. Arkansas and Oklahoma joined
the District in 1961 and 1962, respectively, as part of MOVITE. The Wisconsin and Illinois Sections
were originally organized in 1962, but not chartered as Sections of Midwestern District until 1966.
The NCITE Section was organized and chartered in 1963.
*	 Since its formation in 1947, the Midwestern District has hosted the ITE Annual Meeting 12 times.
