YPT Nashville

The Young Professionals in Transportation Nashville chapter formed in August 2013. Our goal is to provide career guidance, fellowship, and networking opportunities for transportation professionals and students living or working in the Middle Tennessee region. If you are interested in helping grow our group in Nashville, please contact us at yptnashville@gmail.com.
