YPT Board of Directors Strategic Board Meeting in Chicago

Brainstorming

Brainstorming

YPT International’s Board of Directors Strategic Board Meeting in Chicago was a huge success. The weekend started off with a meet and greet on Friday, April 24th and ended with a Divvy Operations Tour on Sunday, April 26th. It was a cram-packed (and somewhat exhausting) weekend, but it was done in hopes to create a clear goal for YPT’s growth efforts and vision.

The board was even able to meet the YPT Chicago Board for dinner Saturday night following their monthly board meeting.

Many useful ideas and plans were brought before all of those present on Saturday and Sunday. The discussions really gave the Board of Directors a good dose of encouragement to make a lasting difference in the organization.

 

Topics discussed were:

  • ways to help strengthen chapters,
  • ideas to increase our international brand/image,
  • improvements to the existing membership database,
  • sponsorship goals,
  • YPT bylaws,
  • planning for future events,
  • chapters needs, wants and suggestions for areas of improvements,
  • ways to better utilize the Board of Advisors,
  • transition plans for board members, as well as
  • many other topics important to the board and all chapters…

Choo choo. #modeltrain display at Norfolk Southern. #trains #transportation #model #hobbies YPT Austin was instrumental in supporting the Greenroads Boot Camp hosted by CTRMA in Austin.  Increase your sustainability street cred, and learn more about Greenroads International, one of our Silver Sponsors! #transportation #sustainability #green #transit #engineering #thankful The #Alaska #Railroad’s main line stretches 470 miles from Seward to #Fairbanks, #connecting communities all along Southcentral and Interior Alaska. 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.
