The next generation of community and public transportation leaders will shape the future of our industry. CTAA is committed to supporting these leaders in creating the most promising future for their organization, employees, and customers through our Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA).

This a critical time for community and public transportation organizations. New technologies are disrupting established methods of service provision while at the same time transit agencies are being asked to do more with declining levels of investment.

The ELA will guide participants to develop the skills and strategies they can immediately apply to their work, help them understand of projected trends that affect our industry, and how to practically apply the knowledge they gain in the program.

I hope that you will join our effort in developing the next generation of leaders by sponsoring a an emerging leader from your state. Information on the ELA can be found at:
