Submit Your Proposal by August 31st! Conference is October 15th & 16th in Bellingham, Washington

The WSRO Board of Directors is excited to open the Call for Presenters for the 2018 WSRO Conference, which will be held in Bellingham on October 15th and 16th. In recognition of WSRO's 30th Anniversary, the theme for the 2018 WSRO Conference is, "Celebrating 30 Years: Moving Transportation Forward."

WSRO conferences are intended to address the issues, challenges, and interests of a broad spectrum of transportation professionals in the Pacific Northwest. Ideally, the 50-minute sessions provide current, directly applicable information and strategies that conference attendees, which will include transportation demand management specialists, transportation planners, and employee transportation coordinators (ETCs), can take back to their workplace.
We're always looking for presentations on the following topics:
  • Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Track
    • Health and TDM
    • Innovative technologies
    • Youth/school programs
    • TDM planning and policy development
    • Washington State Commute Trip Reduction program
    • Tracking TDM program success
    • Promoting/Marketing vanpools
    • Incentives & Recognition
  • Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) Track
    • Successful programs with a limited budget
    • Marketing to your audience
    • Gaining management support
    • Energizing employer programs 
    • Recognition/incentive programs
    • Supporting strategies (i.e. parking management, worksite amenities, etc.)
Do any of these topics speak to you? Or maybe one of them gives you another idea? By all means, submit your proposal.
