 Invitation Letter

To: CEOs and Deputy CEOs/Senior Executives of Public Transportation Agencies
From: Michael P. Melaniphy
President and CEO
Date: November 7, 2012
Subject:   APTA Transit CEOs Seminar
February 9-12, 2013

You are invited to attend the American Public Transportation Association’s Transit CEOs Seminar, February 9-12 at the Renaissance Palm Springs, California. This unique leadership forum offers opportunities to exchange insights with your colleagues and learn from the best.  Please share your strategies, ideas, and news of what’s happening at your agency. This helps everyone with their everyday work and broader, longer-term visions.

We’ll have a new track of study for “deputy CEOs” – direct reports and senior executives with job titles such as assistant general manager, senior director, and vice president – who would like to attain a transit chief executive position.  On Monday morning, there will be a breakfast and sessions for deputy executives. Sessions are also planned for CEOs and senior executives/deputies to work together in small discussion groups. We hope you’ll be able to register yourself and your senior staff members.

If you assumed your CEO responsibilities in the past year, you are welcome to join me at the “President’s Breakfast for Newer CEOs” on Sunday at 7:15 a.m.  

Please consider volunteering to speak at the “CEOs XChange” session to talk about your best practices and new programs. To volunteer as a speaker, please contact APTA’s Lynne Morsen at or 202-496-4853.

I’d like to meet and talk with everyone during the seminar and hope you will be there through Tuesday, February 12.

For more information about registration and hotel arrangements, Heather Rachels will be glad to assist you. Her contact information: 202-496-4838,  We encourage you to register today for the best rates and room availability at:


We are looking forward to seeing you at APTA’s Transit CEOs Seminar.
