BMBG to Hold Meeting Jan. 11-13 in Indian Wells, CA

APTA’s Business Member Board of Governors (BMBG) will hold its first meeting of 2012 Jan. 11-13 at the Hyatt Grand Champions Hotel in Indian Wells, CA.

”This is an important meeting not only for the board members, but for all interested APTA business members to attend,” said BMBG Chair Chuck Wochele. “We will be talking about the status of transit funding in Congress and what business members can do to influence those decisions that are critical to our industry. And there is a lot that business members can and need to do to get Congress to act on the funding that our industry needs,” he added.

The agenda also will include a discussion of the new focus areas that APTA Chair Gary C. Thomas and APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Melaniphy are working on—as well as an update from several transit CEOs in the region.

“We make time in our January meeting to hear from the APTA leadership and several transit CEOs so that we can better understand the issues that the industry is working on and how APTA’s private sector can be supportive of those efforts,” Wochele said.

In addition, there will be meetings of the business member government affairs, procurement, programs, business development, member outreach and liaison, and small business committees. All meetings are open to any interested APTA business member and, as before, private sector networking will be encouraged.

Hotel reservations must be made by Dec. 10 to ensure that APTA members can be accommodated in the room block. Registration and hotel information for the meeting is available here.
