First-time experience at the WSRO conference

Happy National Bike Month, everyone! One of the scholarship recipients to our spring conference recently shared some of her thoughts on her experience with us, and we thought we'd pass them along to the rest of our members. Enjoy!

I’m so grateful for the scholarship I received that allowed me to attend the Spring WSRO Conference.  I’m fairly new to the area of transportation management, so attending the WSRO Conference was a great opportunity for me to learn and meet other professionals in the field.  At the conference I was inspired by Helen Thayer’s talk about her experience conquering the 364 mile journey to the Magnetic North Pole, I gathered program management ideas through sessions on Bike Sharing and the “Go Bronzeville” program, and I heard directly from state leaders’ Lynn Peterson and Brian Lagerberg about the current and future transportation plans for the State of Washington.  Outside of the sessions, I had an opportunity to meet other professionals to share program ideas and experiences.  These connections are priceless.  Thank you for giving me this opportunity.   I look forward to future conferences and involvement in WSRO.
