Not only did I receive a scholarship to ensure that I could attend the WSRO Fall conference, but I also received a great many ideas to keep my job in the transportation options industry interesting. Like what you may ask?  How about “Never underestimate your value!” or Make sure you do a recap binder for your project.  Or…Use terms like Carbon Neutral or Reduced Impact Modes or Find out who the Community Relations Person is at the business you want to do an “ask” of.  And what about creating that Target Partner List starting at the bottom to practice your spiel so when you get to the heavy hitters, you are more articulate and have a better chance of getting to YES!  And hey…did you ever check your “dead” spaces around town that might hold a bicycle parking space? Bet you didn’t even think of that……  Yes…I heard all of this along with many other TO professional folks who make their living by promoting sustainable transportation.  It was a great conference in a very beautiful place and I am looking forward to the Spring WSRO/TOGO Conference in April in Vancouver, Washington.  See you then!
