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:

  • Early December 2024 – executive round table and workshop sessions (in-person)
  • May 2025 – Legislative Conference and workshop sessions (in-person)
  • June 2025 – Capstone Executive sessions (in-person)
  • Late August 2025 – Delivery of Capstone Presentations (virtual)
  • Mid-September 2025 – APTA TRANSform Conference (in-person)

Special Note: APTA highly encourages that incoming class members attend the 2024 APTA TRANSform Conference & showcase including customized workshops for incoming class members.

These executive sponsors also recognize that their Leadership APTA participants will spend time over the year participating via in-person executive workshops, virtual sessions,  and working on their capstone projects, including related virtual meetings. Upon graduation, Class of 2025 members will also serve as program coaches and mentors for the incoming Class of 2026.

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.
