The Business Member Workforce Development Committee’s objective is to support the APTA Strategic Plan through activities in the Workforce Development sphere. The committee will undertake specific actions and activities that include both students and teachers to provide a source of new people entering the transit workforce. The Youth Outreach Subcommittee’s focus is on K-12 students and providing them information on STEM careers in general, and rail and transit careers specifically. The Rail Education Subcommittee’s focus is on students at the trade school and college level and providing them and their instructors with rail specific information and materials.
APTA Committees and Subcommittees are now part of APTAconnect, APTA’s members-only, secure online community space specifically designed to connect you to your peers, colleagues, and friends.
Our online communities are aligned with APTA’s highly valued committees. If you’re a member of a committee, you’re automatically a member of its corresponding online community.
Committee membership is open to all employees of APTA members in good standing, and participation in one or more committees/subcommittees is encouraged and welcomed.
Except for those committees listed as “by appointment only,” you may join a committee or subcommittee by submitting the Committee Interest Form. Upon receipt of your request, you will be added to the committee/subcommittee and contacted by the staff advisor.
