2020 Georgia ITE Mentorship Program

The Georgia ITE Mentorship Program is coming up soon.  The program is geared for towards young professionals that have been working in the transportation engineering field for a few years and are actively involved in ITE.  Each protégé will be paired with a mentor who can provide career advice and professional guidance.  The program will include six organized breakfast or lunch meetings held monthly at various locations.  Additional information can be found in the flyer.

If you are interested in participating in the program as a protégé please complete the application and return it to [email protected].   We will begin accepting applications April 1st and all applications are due by April 30th.  (https://gaite.starchapter.com/images/downloads/Mentorship_Program/2020_mentorship_program_application.docx)

We are also looking for mentors for the program.  If you are interested in being a mentor to one of the great young members in ITE please reach out to [email protected]

While the schedule is subject to change, we are optimistic that all of the meetings will still be completed between June 2020 and December 2020.

GAITE Response to Covid-19

Dear Georgia Section ITE community,

The past week has been a whirlwind for everyone and I'm sure most of you have already modified your work schedules in response to the pandemic of Covid-19. The Georgia ITE board has been discussing how to handle our upcoming events.  At this time, we have made the decision to cancel all in-person meetings and will either offer scheduled events as webinars or postpone until a future date.

To all of our committee chairs and committee members, please make every attempt to replace any GAITE related in-person meetings with conference calls until future notice. 

Below is a brief summary for the events currently scheduled in March and April. 

1. March Monthly Meeting (March 26 w/ Marsha Anderson Bomar) - This event has been modified from an in person meeting to a webinar. GAITE would like to continue to offer PDHs during this time and our speaker Marsha Anderson Bomar has agreed to do a webinar on the topic of current and upcoming projects at MARTA.
              - registration is currently closed for this event as we determine what GAITE needs to do for this event
              - anyone who has already registered and paid we will be issuing a refund
              - more details will follow about requirements to recieve PDHs for this webinar

2. Technical Exchange - This event will be postponed until the Fall. We are already coordinating with Clemson.

3. April Monthly Meeting - We are planning for this event to become a webinar like the March Monthly meeting. The joint meeting with Georgia Tech will be postponed for a later month. More details about this event will be posted on our website as we get closer to the event. 

The board will continue to evaluate changes to future events as we get more information about the progress and nationwide response to Covid-19. Please check our website, read the e-blasts or reach out to one of the board members if you have any questions. 

Thank you for your understanding,

Kate Shearin, PE, PTOE
Georgia Section ITE President, 2020
