KYSITE Fall Webinars
We are excited to announced a couple of opportunities in Lexington and Louisville. Most of you should have already seen this come through email a couple of times.
The first webinar is Tuesday, October 9 (New Urban Streets Methodology- Auto Mode) and the second webinar is Tuesday, October 30 (Freeway Facility Method Applications). The cost is $10 / person (a steal!!).
For more information and to RSVP (which will work this time), please go to this link.
Call for Nominations of Officers / Awards
With the KYSITE Annual Meeting quickly approaching on November 8, now is the time to identify officer candidates and potential award recepients.
Officer Nominations: We are looking for energetic professionals to fill the following positions in KYSITE:
Please contact Past President Lindsay Walker with your nomination. You can nominate yourself if you wish.
Award Nominations: KYSITE awards are a great way to recognize someone for their hard work to the organization / profession. There are three potential awards. More information on these, including past winners can be found here.
It should be noted that we do not always give out all three awards at the same time in order to keep them for the most deserving members. Please contact President Brad Johnson with your nominations.
The deadline for nominations is next Friday (10/05/2012).
