Submit Your Proposal by August 16th! Conference is September 30th & October 1st in Spokane!

The WSRO Board of Directors is excited to open the Call for Presenters for the 2019 WSRO Conference, which will be held in Spokane on September 30th and October 1st. The theme for the 2019 WSRO Conference is, "Confluence of Influence."

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
    • Innovative technologies
    • 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 
In addition, this year we are looking for presentations that focus on behavioral science, such as loss framing, fresh start effect, peer-to-peer competition, and social norming.

Do any of these topics speak to you? Or maybe one of them gives you another idea? By all means, submit your proposal.
