Recap of DAY Two: ITA Annual Meeting:
The day was packed and did not allow for a break. A lot of valuable information was presented by FHWA Brian Allen, BIADOT LeRoy Gishi, TTAP Joe Conway and Morgan Malley, FTA Marianne Stock, CTAA Scott Borgen, Legislative Update CC Wright, Michael Willis, and Matt Jaffe, and finishing with the NTTFI/GIS Update by Sheldon Kipp BIADOT. (Presentations are attached and can be viewed on the 'meeting activity' tab at top of this page.)
Funding Packages is out with positive changes in various areas. Agencies are working through the changes to get notice to tribes as quickly as possible.
The Legislation Update presenters encourage Tribes to assist their leaders to understand the importance of Tribal Transportation issues so they feel comfortable to mention during congressional meetings. This will help Congress in hearing the need out in Indian Country.
Tomorrow is the last day for ITA Annual Meeting. Tomorrow we will discuss 'road map' for the coming year of ITA! I hope to see your participation.
Mary Beth Clark, ITA President.
