CTAA Awards Breakfast: Toast the best with toast!

Wednesday, June 3

Each day in communities across this country organizations and individuals in the Community Transportation field accomplish amazing feats. Working in difficult circumstances, with limitations on funding and many competing demands they provide people with access to work, education, services and all of the other necessities of daily life.

Every year, one of the highlights of the Community Transportation EXPO is the awards ceremony where we recognize the remarkable work done by community transportation by honoring transportation systems and managers for their commitment to their community, novel approaches, innovative concepts and creative solutions. We're sure that you know of such individuals and systems -- so please take a little bit of your time and nominate them! The national awards breakfast is a wonderful CTAA tradition. Toast the very best in the community and public transportation field with... well, toast!

Pecha Kucha: An Informal Evening of Crowd-Sourced Presentations

Wednesday, June 3

Have you always had an idea you wanted to share with your colleagues at EXPO, but it's not quite enough for a workshop session? Or are you in the market for quick, innovative and fun ideas presented in smaller, snapshot doses? On Wednesday, June 3, our first-ever crowd-sourced event at EXPO employs the Pecha Kucha format of a set number of slides with pre-set timing for each slide, with each presentation running no more than 7 minutes each!

We'll take you out of the standard conference meeting room to a less formal setting with light hos d'oeuvres and beverages-for-purchase after the regular EXPO program has wrapped for the day. You'll hear your counterparts from across the community and public transportation industry briefly share the attention-grabbing high notes of their latest innovations and strategies, hopefully bringing the funny at the same time.

Have a fun, unique topic you'd like to share in the Pecha Kucha format? Humorists strongly invited to apply! Just send Rich Sampson a note at sampson@ctaa.org with your idea.
