The first year transitioning from PAYT Maryland to YPT Baltimore has been challenging but fun as we’ve held some of our most attended quarterly events and built new relationships with other organizations. Moving into our second year as a YPT chapter, we hope to inject more energy and participation from our members, and are looking forward to our first year opening board positions to the election process!
To be a part of our mission, “Connecting transportation professionals to collaboratively innovate and present informed solutions to challenges facing the transportation industry,” you can become a member, run for a board position, or attend future board meetings which are open to all members.
YPT Baltimore will be holding board elections very soon! Similar to the international board, you must be a due paying member to vote and to run for a board position.
Here are some steps to participate in board elections:
- Check your membership status by logging in to yptransportation.org.
- If you’re not a member, you have until the end of September (for election purposes) to become a member by using the link here.
- Submit your name and candidate statement for one of four board positions using this form.
- If you’re not running for a position, but would like to vote, keep an eye out for upcoming emails and activities regarding board elections!
Once we have candidate statements submitted, we’ll hold a happy hour for candidates and members to mingle and discuss the future of our chapter. Specific dates for membership deadlines, candidate submission deadlines, and other election updates will be forthcoming.
