AZITE May Luncheon & TRB Traffic Signal Systems Committee Meeting

AZITE Member Appreciation Luncheon

Please remember to register for our upcoming annual Member Appreciation luncheon on May 24th, which will be held from noon to 1 pm at the Giants Team Store at Scottsdale Stadium. We will have a very informative presentation by Margaret Boone, Safety Engineer at Maricopa Association of Governments, discussing “Data Driven Safety Analysis”.

Since this is our Member Appreciation luncheon, there will be no charge for lunch, however we will again be accepting donations for the Richard T. Romer Student Endowment Fund. In past years, our members have contributed nearly $500 from this event alone, in addition to our Section’s $500 annual donation.

This year, we are challenging our members to increase their total contributions to $600 in support of the Western District increasing student support from $15,000 to $18,000. New initiatives include 4 Regional Travel Scholarships and a 6th Data Collection Fund project.

This fund has greatly expanded student initiatives in the Western District of ITE with the objective of attracting the best and brightest to the transportation profession.  These include:

  • Waiving ITE Dues and subsidizing District Annual Meeting fees for students
  • Funding travel to District Annual Meetings through student competitions, student papers, student projects, the Data Collection Fund
  • Subsidizing costs for the annual Student Leadership Summit, which held its inaugural event in 2014
  • Sponsoring special events for students and professionals


Please consider donating through PayPal or bringing a cash donation to support the Student Endowment Fund!

Pizza, salad, dessert and drinks will be served along with a great presentation by Margaret!
