ABJ30 Members and Friends,
The August 1st deadline for paper submissions is almost here --- in the next few days Tom Palmerlee will be assigning papers to Committees and we will be looking for reviewers - I hope you will be available to help - we need your expertise and experience with this very important part of the TRB Annual Meeting process. We will also be moving ahead with our Workshop plans and looking for your input on panel sessions and suggestions for partnerships with other Committees. Thanks for all your help and support for ABJ30 --

wanted to include the people that attended the mid-year meeting and I am not
sure are on the ABJ30 list serve. To get on the list serve (and manage your
membership), follow the directions at:
Second, thank you to everyone who attended the mid-year meeting in person or
through the web meeting. We had over 30 attendees! I will be uploading the
minutes shortly, but the agenda and several attachments can be found at:
Third, our biggest priority task right now is to prepare a brief report
about how our committee's activities are related to TRB's critical issues.
WE WANT YOUR INPUT. For example, your quick thoughts on how data is part of
any of these issues will be ultra-helpful. Your quick thoughts on how our
committee's activities and committee members' activities relate is
ultra-helpful. Please send any and all ideas by noon on July 8 so that we
can compile these as input to the Section report. (Please reply to the
email NOW.) This may feel like a square peg in a round hole activity, but
it may be that all transportation research funding goes to these identified
issues and not anything else (like livability or data), so your input at
this stage is important. Please help. The nine TRB critical issues are:
The updated TRB Critical Issues report is found at:
Please respond with your ideas to the list serve or me (
