Encouraging student involvement is an important goal for APTA’s conferences and meetings. APTA’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Workforce Development has embraced the need to prepare the next generation of leaders within the public transportation industry. Faculty and students at local colleges and universities are invited to attend and are encouraged to participate in the conference programming.
The conference offers great opportunities for students to network and interact with a variety of professionals within the industry, participate in educational sessions, hear from industry experts, and browse products and services. This is also be an added benefit for members to network, market and recruit a new generation interested in careers within the transit industry.
