Mobility Management News: December 2019
Hello readers, 

My name is Kirby Wilhelm, and I'm excited to release NCMM's December newsletter, as well as introduce myself as the most recent staffer for NCMM. I started my time at CTAA in early December, and most recently worked for an affordable housing non-profit. I'm be looking forward to exploring the intersections of mobility, housing, and environmental sustainability while with NCMM. As I take on the responsibility of NCMM's newsletter from Will, as well as the Mobility Lines blog, I'd like to continue letting our mobility management readers know of the chance to have their work showcased through a blog posting, as well as to feel welcome in letting me know of any content recommendations or interesting mobility management happenings in your community. If you have a written piece you'd like to have considered for Mobility Lines, any recommendations for content or just want to reach out, my contact information is below.

Call for Letters of Interest
NCMM is soliciting Letters of Interest from communities who are seeking help in conducting a regional meeting focused on a specific transportation challenge. NCMM will choose three communities with whom it will co-design these one-day meetings; NCMM will then facilitate the meetings, which will take place in February 2020. The meetings will give mobility management practitioners within a "mobility region" the opportunity to meet, network, and develop potential solutions to the identified issue. NCMM will work closely with the two selected regions to co-design these one-day meetings to ensure they effectively addresses the goals the community sets for the meeting.

If you are interested in NCMM hosting one of these meetings in your region, please read the following opportunity description and submit a Letter of Interest no later than Jan. 9, 2020.
