IBTTA Leadership Academy Gives Participants Leadership Abilities To Lead Future Transportation Infrastructure Demands
This week, over thirty emerging leaders in the transportation and infrastructure industry, including James Laurita from Gannett Fleming in New York, NY will converge on Washington, DC for a weeklong leadership academy sponsored by the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association (IBTTA) Foundation. IBTTA’s Foundation is the research, educational and charitable arm of IBTTA, the worldwide association representing toll facility owners and operators and the businesses that serve them.
The IBTTA Leadership Academy is tailored specifically for senior-level managers in public-and private-sector organizations that serve the toll industry. The IBTTA Leadership Academy takes place February 9-14, 2014 in Washington, DC, where this year’s participants will learn from a distinguished faculty of leadership and transportation experts, including current and former executive directors of toll agencies and concessionaires with international experience. During the week long IBTTA Leadership Academy, topics will include transportation policy, managing by metrics, emotional intelligence, developing winning strategies, building partnerships for success and effective communications.
“Our IBTTA Leadership Academy is designed to broaden the perspective of some of our industry’s emerging leaders so they may gain a fully developed picture of the multifaceted business of tolling,” said Patrick D. Jones, Executive Director and CEO of IBTTA. “Their time in Washington, DC gives them a unique opportunity to learn from expert faculty and other participants to enhance their role as future leaders in shaping transportation infrastructure around the world.”
