Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’re fortunate to be surrounded by an engaged base of individuals who are deeply passionate about transportation. Our membership is comprised of a variety of transportation enthusiasts from organizations large and small, public and private, established and entrepreneurial.
I am proud to represent this dynamic organization, now in its second year and growing at a record pace. YPT’s core mission is to provide career guidance, fellowship and networking opportunities for professionals. Here in the Bay Area, we also take that goal a step further by aligning with our region’s innovative spirit. Our chapter seeks to bring together people and ideas that are driving change in the transportation industry. Our best YPT programs and events come from our organization’s base: friends and members, individuals we believe to be the future of transportation.
Without member and sponsor support, this organization and the ideas that we share would not exist. We hope that you’ll come out and connect with us at future events and meet with our leadership to learn more about our organization. Thanks for your interest in YPT and please let me know if there’s anything we can do to make it even better! Andy Kosinski 2013-2014 Chair, YPT San Francisco Bay Area
