Hello Florida Section ITE Members!


Welcome to the Florida Section ITE website!

Summer is winding down and we’re headed into the home stretch for 2014!

We had a great meeting in Clearwater at the end of June; we partnered with ITS Florida which really helped to boost our attendance to a new high for recent years.  We had an excellent technical program and were located at a great venue right on the beach.  A big thanks to the Local Arrangements Committee and to our Board members for making this happen!

Congratulations to the ITE Student Chapter at the University of Florida!  They were victorious at our District competition in Clearwater, and went on to represent us at the Institute’s Annual Meeting in Seattle in early August.  Unfortunately, they were not able to repeat their winning performance of last year, but I’m sure that they enjoyed the meeting and the opportunity to participate in the activities.

Our next Florida meeting will be our Annual FSITE / District Ten meeting, which will be held November 5th through 7th, 2014, in Boca Raton.  We’ll be at the Embassy Suites Resort, and this will be a joint meeting with the South Florida Chapter of WTS.  Our theme is “Moving People and Goods:  A Look Back and Staying Ahead”.  We have full information and links here on our website. Please check it out!

There has been a lot of activity at the International level.  The Institute’s Board has been working hard to address the changing role of the Institute in today’s profession.  A new dues structure for public agency members, a reconfiguration of the Institute’s technical conference, and a makeover of ITE Journal are just three of the big steps of the past year.

One of the big events in Seattle was the graduation of the first class of LeadershipITE.  This program has been extremely successful; the class’s activities have been very productive for both participants and the Institute as a whole.  If you’re interested, check out LeadershipITE at www.ite.org/leadership/ .

Our election for District Ten / Florida Section Secretary / FLITE Editor is ongoing; ballots will be included with the distribution of the coming edition of FLITE.  We have two great candidates…please check them out and be sure to vote!

Have a great fall, and we’ll see you in Boca!
