Led by the University of Minnesota, the two-year consortium will develop and implement user-centered safety solutions across multiple modes.

Get Involved - Invest in Future Leaders

As ITS practitioners, I feel we have a responsibility to the future ITS leaders and practitioners.  There is so much we have learned, approaches and standards we have developed  and great things we have done that we need to share how rewarding a career can be in ITS.  We need to share our knowledge, projects and experience with the future, we need to recruit and mentor at all opportunities.

December 2013 President's Message

ITS is a vibrant and ever changing field – something I have found to treasure in making it my  vocation.  No two days are the same and the learning never stops.  This quarter’s newsletter  touches on the breadth of ITS that is operational and being planned within Minnesota.  I hope you  take the time to read the articles and reflect on how far we’ve come in delivering technology to the  transportation experience.

 I am honored to serve as your president in 2013-2014 and look forward to furthering the goals of  this great organization.  As always, the ITS Minnesota Board welcomes your input and suggestions.  Please feel free to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
