The Strategic Initiatives Council serves the NCSITE Membership by focusing on topics such as Leadership Development, Legislative Issues, Public Education, and Strategic Planning initiatives. The Council’s activities are designed to foster leadership development, soft skill training, transportation professional advocacy, networking, communications, and activities to identify and address strategic and emerging issues for the transportation profession. The size of the Council is kept small to ensure robust discussions among Council members who serve at senior management levels of their respective organizations.

2020 SIC meetings are called at the discretion of the Chair.

The Transportation Planning Council (TPC) is focused on on promoting professional development and providing fellowship and networking opportunities for our membership and for members of the North Carolina transportation engineering and planning community. We also seek ways to offer our student chapter members mentoring opportunities, educational outreach, and outlets for their research.

The Transportation Planning Council (TPC) meets each month to develop and conduct a planning-related program for the year. The TPC promotes NCSITE in the planning community through workshops, meetings, and luncheons.

2020 GOALS

  • Hold TPC meetings each month with a Social Hour following the meeting or technical presentation offered;

  • Support each of the student chapters and their efforts;

  • Organize and sponsor several Triangle- and Charlotte-area educational luncheons;

  • Organize and sponsor a Triangle-area mobile tour;

  • Engage members from across the state to participate in TPC activities;

  • Develop the planning track of the Annual Meeting and provide support to the Traffic Engineering Council

  • Hold at least one joint TPC-TEC organizational meeting and social event; and

The primary responsibility of the Consultant/Vendor Council seeks to coordinate the private consulting and supply community with the mission and goals of NCSITE. The Consultant/Vendor Council provides support for the meetings and seminars in partnership with the other three NCSITE councils. This support ranges from scheduling vendors to show their innovative products and cutting edge technologies and consultants to present on showcase projects and experiences to setting up and facilitating exhibit halls at meetings and seminars. The Consultant/Vendor Council is also responsible for sponsorships at all meetings and the annual banquet and raising funds for the scholarship program.

Other specific goals of the Consultant/Vendor Council are to:

  • Provide training opportunities for members;

  • Promote vendors and their products to the membership;

  • Increase vendor membership (via corporate memberships);

  • Serve as a resource to other councils; and

  • Increase vendor involvement and visibility.


The Consultant/Vendor Council (CVC) Chair strives to involve product vendors and transportation engineering and planning consultants more often in NCSITE activities. The CVC increases the exposure of consultants and vendors to the membership and provides opportunities for them to sponsor events, thus promoting activities that are mutually beneficial to the membership and the sponsoring companies. The CVC also works to provide training opportunities while promoting vendors and their products to the membership. The CVC is the driving force behind scholarship fundraising. The goals for the year include the following:

  • Assist with local meetings throughout the year;

  • Provide sponsorships for the Mid-year Meeting and promote scholarship fundraising activities (includes golf tournament);

  • Provide sponsorships for the Annual Meeting (includes vendor expo); and

  • Increase vendor involvement and visibility.
