Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting

The Transportation Research Board hosts its 91st annual meeting here in Washington DC, January 22-26. You can expect the city to fill with thousands of transportation policy experts, engineers, planners, consultants … and … a few dozen communications persons. The largest transportation meeting of the year does not focus on communications specifically, but thanks to some leadership within the TRB committee structure there are some excellent sessions worth attending. You can find an entire listing of the TRB annual meeting agenda online.

Here’s a shameless plug for a session in which I’ll be participating, “Building Your Professional Network in 140 Characters or Less: How Social Media Tools Can Enhance Professional Networking.” The session takes place Sunday, Jan. 22 and it includes a well-rounded lineup of experts who can talk specifically about how they are using social media tools in their transportation communication practice.
