Leadership APTA participants are sponsored by the public transportation system or organization where they are employed. An organization’s sponsoring a candidate, providing the monetary resources, and allowing the time necessary for candidates to participate in the related events and activities are critical to the success of Leadership APTA.
The tuition fee for the Leadership APTA program is $6,000.

The tuition fee, due to APTA by Friday, September 18, 2020 includes:

  • Workshop materials, some meals, and related expenses during the required Leadership APTA workshops (December 2020, March 2021, July/August 2021, and October 2021).
  • March 2021 APTA Legislative Conference registration, materials and some meals.
    • Registrations for both the 2020 APTA TRANSform Conference & Expo and the 2021 APTA TRANSform Conference and some meals.

Participating agencies and organizations sponsoring participants in the program are responsible for:

  • The tuition fee
  • Travel costs to and from the Leadership APTA workshops, Legislative Conference, and Annual Meeting
  • Hotel expenses, some meals, and related miscellaneous expenses

Participating agencies and organizations should plan for participants to attend the 2020 December Leadership APTA workshop; March 2021 Legislative Conference and Leadership APTA workshops held in conjunction with the conference; the July/August 2020 Capstone session, and the 2021 APTA TRANSform Conference. We strongly encourage class members to attend the 2020 APTA TRANSform Conference & Expo and related Leadership APTA sessions.

The following is provided to help organizations plan for logistical costs associated with the Leadership APTA sessions and related events:

  • Four to five hotel nights, two travel days, and four days for the December 2020 workshop.
  • Five to six hotel nights, two travel days, and five days for the March 2021 Legislative Conference and related Leadership APTA workshops.
  • Six-seven hotel nights, two travel days, and six days for the July/August 2021 workshop (Capstone Session).
  • A minimum of four-to-five hotel nights and two travel days each for the 2020 APTA TRANSform Conference & Expo and 2021 APTA TRANSform Conference. Full attendance at both Annual meetings would involve a total of eight to ten hotel nights.

Complimentary conference registrations are provided for the May 2021 Mobility Conference and the June 2021 Rail Conference for members of the Leadership APTA Class of 2021. No Leadership APTA workshop sessions are scheduled at either of these conferences.
