CFTE Plans Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference
The Center for Transportation Excellence (CFTE) invites transit agencies, local officials, transportation supporters, advocates, and ballot measure campaign professionals to gather in Salt Lake City May 31-June 2 to participate in its biannual Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference.
Although transportation measures have traditionally done well at the ballot, many communities are uncertain of how to approach voters with local transportation’s need for financial support. This conference will take an in-depth look at how to pass initiatives and build support for transportation investment in the midst of the current economy. Speakers will include
national transportation experts and campaign professionals, with sessions covering the latest in financial trends, their impact on transportation, and how to translate this knowledge into a successful ballot measure.
