ITS Annual Meeting
We’re back! The annual meeting of the Intelligent Transportation Society of New Mexico is returning after having been postponed last year. This year’s event on October 19th is noteworthy on multiple fronts as outlined below.
First, we have a great agenda lined out that will cover a variety of topics related to the integration of current and new advanced technologies in transportation including:
- Technologies that support vehicle autonomy and vehicle connectivity with the roadway,
- Commercial vehicle operations,
- Economic opportunities of inland ports,
- Advanced infrastructure and solar roadways,
We will have presentations on virtual operations, alternative uses of crowd-sourced data, ITS functions used for consolidated services, and innovative approaches to alternative uses of communications infrastructure.
Our agenda will cover items happening on a global, national, regional, statewide, and even local front. Things have been happening and we want to share them with our members.
Second, we have opted for hosting a virtual event out of concern over the health and safety of our event’s participants. Though we miss you all and look forward to being able to meet in person, the platform we’re using to manage the event will afford a solid forum of exchange and networking among peers as well as with our exhibitors and presenters. It’s called Whova and when you register, you’ll be prompted to download the application for use during the event. Within it you’ll be able to better realize the benefits and amenities our event has to offer.
Third, is that the event is no cost to its attendees. That’s right, zero dineros. Not only is it a great value, but it’s also more than an affordable way to earn PDHs. Keeping up with your professional credentialing obligations are now both easy and free.
Additionally, we’re keeping intact one of our most popular event features. As with our in-person events, they’ll be ample opportunities to participate for prizes throughout the day. We’ve established a few games and competitions that will be both fun and potentially rewarding. This will be one of the few instances where you don’t have to pay-to-play.
Finally, one of the things worth noting the most is you: ITSNM values you as one of our stakeholders. Without you, our meeting wouldn’t quite be complete. Please consider attending. Registration is open at https://whova.com/portal/registration/nmits_202109. We hope you’ll make it.
