Past Events

A Conversation with the City of Atlanta Chief Bicycle Officer Becky Katz

Event Recap

YPT Atlanta hosted a distinguished guest speaker, Becky Katz, the City of Atlanta’s new Chief Bicycle Officer. The event was held at Hudson Grille in Midtown on Thursday, March 3. Sponsorship, in the amount of $500, was secured through TSW Architects, Landscape Architects, and Planners. This sponsorship allowed us to purchase heavy h’orderves.

The event was posted and advertised through email and social media. There were 39 registrations sold on Eventbrite; 32 were members, 7 were non-members. Becky spoke about her career path to her current position, discussed the future of biking in Atlanta, including the roll-out of Atlanta’s bike-share program. She then answered questions. The event ended at 8:00 PM.

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.
