Dear Transit Colleagues,
Season's Greetings to all of our members, partners, sponsors and supporters! We look forward to celebrating your successes in transit in the New Year together!
Just a reminder, the OTA office will be closed from Dec 26th to January 2nd but if you have an urgent need, please reach out on my cell phone below and I'll be happy to try and assist you.
OTA is now managing the Oklahoma Mobility Institute! This organization has recently added three new board members! Congratulations to Olivia Hook, ODOT, Marylin Dillion, PhD, Embark, and Jason Huff with the City of Norman. They join Becky Reynolds, LIFT and Brent Roy, Creative Bus Sales as the leadership group. OMI is currently seeking one additional board member. If you or someone you work with might be interested mobility and grants, please send me their names for consideration.
Additionally, OTA is seeking committee members! We currently have openings on our communications committee and advocacy committee. If you have an interest in getting involved in OTA and enhancing your professional development by volunteering, please email me.
If you haven't made plans already, the OTA is currently scheduling visits to transit agencies and public events for the ROC Bus for 2023. We offer wheelchair securement training, public awareness of transit discussions, and human trafficking awareness displays, or can customize our visit based on your transit goals. If you'd like to have the OTA visit during a particular timeframe (during a board meeting, at an employee event, etc.) we are happy to try and work with your schedule. Email me to request a visit.
Finally, we are gearing up to bill for your OTA 2023 dues. If you are a transit member, please provide us your current vehicle county by 12/31/22 by clicking here.
The OTA is grateful for your partnership and continued support. Collaboration is critical in what we do, and we appreciate your significant contributions. We look forward to continuing our work in 2023.
Andrea Ball, Executive Director
