Attend BMBG Meeting in January; Market-Driven Agenda Taking Shape

Each January, the APTA Business Member Board of Governors (BMBG) convenes to identify private sector priorities and set an agenda to address industry matters impacting their businesses.

The 2015 meeting, open to all business members, will take place Jan. 26-28 in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.

Market conditions make the 2015 meeting an important and timely one. The platform for discussion, as outlined by newly elected BMBG Chair Pat Scully, will include:

A national day to support transportation: APTA Chair Phil Washington, general manager and CEO, Denver RTD, will introduce his signature initiative and develop a plan with business members to convey the industry’s message to Congress.

Legislative program: Meeting attendees will review the midterm election results to create a plan for supporting APTA’s efforts toward congressional passage of a surface transportation authorization bill.

Procurement and jobs: Job creation in large rolling stock procurements and Buy America continues to be an important topic for the private sector.

Innovative financing: Business members will discuss next steps in the industry-wide discussion on ways to develop a more comprehensive approach to financing public transportation in the U.S.

BMBG work plan: Representatives of the BMBG committees will report on their progress and together the business members will agree to a business member work plan for 2015.

The deadline for hotel reservations at the PGA National Resort is Dec. 18. Find more information at the APTA website under 2015 Meetings, or contact Beverly Hill.
