AASHTO Transportation Vanguard Award 2014

At its meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, November 2012, the AASHTO Board of Directors established the AASHTO Transportation Vanguard Award 2014, to acknowledge a young leader who exemplifies a commitment to excellence in the implementation of innovative technologies and processes.  The award was created in honor of the late Jim McMinimee, a leader in the field of transportation who developed cutting-edge solutions both in his work at Utah DOT and as AASHTO’s SHRP2 Implementation Manager.  We hope to honor someone who also embodies this spirit and commitment in their work.

Please find attached Transportation Vanguard Award Writeup 2014 v1 that further explains the award criteria, as well as a Transportation Vanguard Award Form-2014. The completed nomination will be due to Marty Vitale, mvitale@aashto.org no later than September 26, 2014.  Please send me the nomination form in MSWord (do not convert to PDF or scan).  A letter from the CEO will suffice as an endorsement or Marty Vitale will verify the endorsement by contacting the member department’s CEO.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Marty at any time.

Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads.

The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
