2016 RECAP

Thank you to all the members, affiliates and speakers who made the 2016’s Mid-Year Meeting a huge success!

Special thanks to Mid-Year chairs Steve Brown and Lauren Triebert and the Transportation Planning Council for their hard work in pulling off the meeting without a hitch.

Over 80 attendees came down to Wilmington for two days filled with technical knowledge, fellowship, and fun-filled activities.  Participants were treated to walking and biking tours around the city, a history lesson from local Bob Jenkins that left folks LOL, presentations on timely planning topics, and rooftop dinner and drinks with views of Front St. and the Cape Fear River.
