CEOs, General Managers, and Executive Directors sponsoring candidates recognize that an employee’s participation in Leadership APTA is extremely valuable to their organizations. Since the first Leadership APTA Class of 1998, leaders in the public transportation industry from public agencies and private businesses have watched their investment in this program return great dividends.
Sponsors understand that their commitment and support means allowing their Leadership APTA participant to attend the following planned required workshops and conferences:
- End November/early December 2022– executive round table and workshop sessions (in-person)
- March 2023– Legislative Conference and workshop sessions (in-person)
- June 2023– Capstone Executive sessions (in-person)
- Summer/Early Fall 2023– Delivery of Capstone Presentations (virtual)
- October 2023– APTA TRANSform Conference & EXPO (in-person)
Special Note: APTA highly encourages that incoming class members attend the 2022 APTA TRANSForm Conference including customized workshops for incoming class members.
These executive leaders also recognize that their Leadership APTA participants will spend time over the year participating in virtual and in-person executive workshops and sessions and working on their capstone projects, including related virtual meetings. Upon graduation, Class of 2023 members will also serve as program coaches and mentors for the incoming Class of 2024.
Reminder: One of the goals of Leadership APTA is to develop future leaders of APTA. The Leadership APTA program requires that each sponsoring organization actively support at least one additional year of APTA involvement from its Leadership APTA participant immediately upon graduation through participation on APTA committees, task forces, or special projects. APTA thanks and recognizes our industry members who leverage their Leadership APTA graduates as valued leaders within their organizations and the industry.
