The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is one of the largest and most well-respected organizations for those in the transportation profession. ITE will be holding its annual election in June and July of this year, selecting the next Vice President of the organization. The Vice President automatically becomes the President in the following year.
The person elected will have a hand in shaping the future of the organization and helping it to better meet the needs of the next generation of transportation engineers, planners, and other professionals. YPT asked both candidates, Jimmy Lin and Shawn Leight, to share their thoughts about their careers to date and how they would help to improve the profession and support young professionals.
