Conference Provides Insights into Election Process

APTA invites public transit employees, supporters, advocates and local officials to attend the biennial Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference, hosted by the Center for Transportation Excellence (CFTE), June 1-3 at the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, MI.

This is the only national conference exclusively devoted to understanding transportation ballot measures and advocacy campaigns. Topics will include successful tactics from fundraising to getting out the vote, organizing coalitions, preparing for a campaign, developing effective messages and media strategies, responding to critics, planning effective ballot language and timing, working with partners and creating champions and acquiring tips for small and mid-size community campaigns.

Interactive sessions will offer insights into recent elections and key trends shaping campaigns, including extensive case studies. The conference also provides numerous opportunities for networking.

CFTE has extended the early registration discount until April 7. To register or for more information, visit the CFTE website.
