Name: David Morse
Position for Nomination: Chair
I have a great desire to continue my involvement with the YPT-Nashville board by running a third time for the Chair position for the 2016-2017 term. Having been a charter member and the year 2 and 3 Chair, I know what it takes to successfully run the YPT-Nashville chapter. We have added some key partnerships and a significant sponsorship to help propel the growth. Having seen it first hand, I feel that I am fully capable of continuing this role and maintaining the current momentum.
If selected, I know that my fellow board members can count on me to deliver timely responses, prompt decisions and a continued organized chapter operation going forward. I will work hard to look for opportunities to market our chapter and continue to contribute towards the overall goal of membership growth, increased chapter visibility and incentivized opportunities for our members. I think that communication amongst board members as well as all other members and friends of the chapter is key and I would continue to promote that collaboration throughout my term. Under my leadership, all ideas will be welcomed and considered. Ultimately, I want to continue bringing transportation professionals and students together so that the next great idea may be shared in Middle Tennessee!
I have worked here in Nashville for the past 7 years at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff as a transportation engineer. My main focus is in highway design across the state of Tennessee, although I have done some work for our Georgia, Florida and Virginia offices as well. I have worked on projects for TDOT, MTA, MPO and city governments during my tenure at WSP | PB and am also a member of ASCE and ASHE. I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Western Kentucky University and a M.E. in Construction Management from Vanderbilt University.
Thank you for your consideration!
