Positions Sought: Director At-Large

Candidate Statement:
I would like to serve on the YPT Atlanta Chapter Board of Directors for the following year in the position of Director At-Large. From my previous experience as the YPT Atlanta chapter Chair and Deputy Chair over the past three years and since the chapter’s inception, I have full knowledge of the operations of the organization. As Director At-Large, I plan to be the webmaster, maintaining the YPT Atlanta website with information from the Programs, Membership, Communication and other board members, improving the current look, feel, and operation of the site to make YPT Atlanta easily accessible and enjoyable. In addition to performing duties as the webmaster, I will continue to assist the board in its directives and goals, by assisting with various efforts as directed by the Chair, and sitting on the Programs committee to help schedule and coordinate events.


Candidate: Forrest Rose, Urban Planner, City of Atlanta – Office of Planning

Position Sought: Director At-Large

Candidate Statement:
I am submitting my nomination for a Director At-Large position with the Young Professionals in Transportation, Atlanta chapter. As a member of the YPT board in 2015, I had the great pleasure of working with other likeminded individuals. Being a part of a team that organizes so many wonderful events is truly rewarding. Planning small social gatherings such as TOD’s or hosting distinguished speakers is what makes YPT Atlanta such a great organization to be a part of.
It is important we include ourselves in the discussion around transportation. As a member of the board, I will continue to assist with event planning, idea sharing, and chapter growth. Additionally, as a Director At-Large I will help connect young professionals with various backgrounds to ensure Atlanta YPT chapter continues to grow and stay diverse.
