As a member of ITE NorCal, you join a dynamic, interactive group of nearly 17,000 transportation professionals in 92 countries dedicated to solving today’s transportation challenges and advancing their transportation-related careers.
Because transportation is such a specialized field, getting practical in-house training or finding effective continuing-education opportunities can be difficult and expensive. ITE NorCal tailors its activities to keep professionals at the cutting edge of transportation trends primarily through monthly luncheon programs that highlight the latest transportation technologies, issues and Northern California projects. At the national level, ITE provides training through its highly popular annual meetings.
ITE NorCal focuses on providing a platform to achieve technical excellence both for the profession and the individual. ITE publications with discounted pricing for members provide insight into cutting-edge information in transportation, where changes are constantly emerging and research is ongoing. ITE also provides a certification process through its Professional Traffic Operations Engineer (PTOE) exam that demonstrates requisite knowledge, skill and ability in the specialized application of traffic operations engineering, and that provides a competitive advantage for members interested in advancing their careers.
ITE NorCal provides numerous opportunities to share information and meet other professionals in the transportation field. Through monthly luncheons and other programs, members can dramatically expand their professional networks and develop relationships that last a career. Our members can share experiences and perspectives on issues with people they grow to know – and be only one email or call away from support and advice.
Promoting the Profession
ITE NorCAL seeks to enhance the transportation profession by increasing awareness of accomplishments, recognizing professional achievement and developing better skills to contact and communicate with the public. ITE provides its members an opportunity to become recognized in the profession through awards, leadership in ITE through volunteer opportunities, research and/or elective office. ITE Western District Annual Meetings include sessions targeted to improve public-involvement methods and avenues of contact regarding transportation.
