|COUNTDOWN TO 2010 ANNUAL MEETING
From APTF, Scholarships, GALA 2010, and Golf!
The American Public Transportation Foundation (APTF) has scheduled a variety of activities during the 2010 APTA Annual Meeting in San Antonio, beginning with the presentation of the 2010 APTF Scholarship Awards recipients on Monday afternoon, Oct. 4.
Immediately following the award recognition, APTF will present an interactive session titled “Growing the Next Wave of Leaders,” with veteran leaders sharing their experiences in the public transportation industry. Since classroom knowledge is only a fraction of what new transit professionals will need to succeed, seasoned industry professionals will offer their support as mentors, coaches, and teachers.
On Monday evening, APTF will celebrate its scholarship program with GALA 2010, an event showcasing food, music, dancing, networking, and more. Tickets, at $85 each, benefit the APTF scholarship fund, and are available through its web site. APTF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and payments are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
The 18th Annual APTF Benefit Golf Tournament will follow Wednesday morning, Oct. 6, at the Republic Golf Club in San Antonio. The day’s activities begin with breakfast and conclude with awards and a barbeque. New and exciting this year—a sponsor is offering $10,000 cash to any golfer who makes a hole-in-one on the third hole! The fee is $200 for an individual player or $750 for a foursome, and the barbeque is open to other Annual Meeting guests for $40 each.
APTF’s activities rely on support from its sponsors. Earl sponsors this year are AECOM, Bombardier, Cubic, GFI Genfare, Gilbert Tweed Associates Inc., Hatch Mott MacDonald, Herzog, HNTB Corporation, LTK Engineering Services, Mineta Transportation Institute, Motor Coach International, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Sumitomo Corporation of America, and URS.
Sponsorship opportunities remain available for both GALA 2010 and the golf tournament. Interested? Contact Yvonne Conley.
