In recognition of the close professional connection between the Transportation Group and the Australian Institute of Transportation Planning and Management (AITPM), the National Committee is once again pleased to sponsor a Transportation Group member to attend the AITPM National Conference, which this year is being held in Melbourne.
The sponsorship (to the value of NZD1500) is to support a member to attend the conference, participate in the various sessions and workshops, and to represent the Group at the AITPM Annual General Meeting held at the conference.
Interested members are invited to submit an application, supported by a brief (300 words or less) commentary on the following criteria:
- benefit to member, employer and profession from member’s participation in the conference
- ability of member to obtain additional funding needed for the trip (e.g. employer)
- member’s contribution to profession (especially the Transportation Group)
- whether member is presenting at the conference
After the conference, the successful member will prepare a brief conference report that will be published in the Roundabout magazine, and is encouraged to give a presentation on their trip to their local Branch and the next Transportation Conference if possible.
Please email your applications to the Awards Coordinator by the end of the day Friday 30 June at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful member will be advised by 14 July.
