There are four key components of YPT’s program of events.
Networking Events / Transit Oriented Drinks (TOD) – These events are a great way to get to know your fellow transportation professionals and students in a relaxed, informal setting. We meet at various bars and restaurants in Atlanta. Networking events generally feature an invited Distinguished Guest, a leader in the transportation field. TOD events are just for happy hour! YPT Atlanta events are free, unless otherwise noted.
Distinguished Speaker Series / Leadership Seminars – These seminars are a great way to meet and interact with distinguished leaders in the transportation field. Participants are encouraged to ask questions about the speakers’ work, career path, and for advice to today’s young professionals. Speakers invited to attend include prominent transportation practitioners and leaders.
Technical Tours – These tours offer members the opportunity to explore transportation in practice, and in person.
Board Meetings – These are regularly scheduled meetings of the YPT Atlanta Board of Directors. At these meetings, we discuss the group’s goals and strategies and plan events. They are on the last Monday of the month at 6:30 pm. Please contact us if you’d like to attend.
