Announcing our first ever swag design contest!
We’re creating YPT swag and we need your help! If you’re interested, please send your best transportation-related design with the words “Young Professionals in Transportation SF Bay” (or “YPT SF Bay”) incorporated to firstname.lastname@example.org. Vector graphics are preferred, and designs with 1-2 colors are best for printing.
All members will have first priority on getting the swag at an upcoming event, so remember to join or renew your membership (you must also be a member to submit a design). The winning designer will receive a free swag item and YPT membership for a year. The deadline is Friday, July 27 and the winner will be notified in August. We can’t wait to see your ideas!
Some fine print: All submitted designs will become property of YPT SF Bay, and you are welcome to include your name on the design.

Other Fine Print:
There are four key components of YPT’s program of events:
These are a great way to get to know your fellow transportation professionals and students in a relaxed, informal setting. We meet at various venues in the San Francisco Bay Area. Networking events generally feature an invited distinguished guest who is a leader in transportation. YPT SF Bay events are free, unless otherwise noted.
Seminars present an opportunity meet and interact with distinguished leaders in transportation. Participants are encouraged to ask questions about speakers’ work, career path, and for advice to today’s young professionals. Speakers invited to attend have included prominent transportation practitioners.
Tours offer members the opportunity to explore transportation in practice.
The YPT SF Bay board of directors meets regularly. At these meetings, we discuss the group’s goals and strategies and plan events.
YPT SF Bay’s goal is to hold large events with guest speakers quarterly, as well as smaller more intimate events every four to six weeks. These can include things like technical tours, seminars, trivia nights, or the always fun YPT Beers with Peers events, where you can learn about the exciting things your peers are working on!
If you have any ideas for other types of events, if you’d like to lead a YPT Beers with Peers event, or for more information, please feel free to contact us!
