Hello AED20 members and friends,
The AED20 main committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 11 from
1:30-3:30 PM in the Marriott Independence Salon ABC. Unfortunately, there
will be no dial in option, but we will be sure to distribute minutes and
handouts electronically after the meeting to those unable to attend
I've attached a few items for your review before the meeting:
1. *Meeting agenda*. Since we are limited to 1.5 hours, the meeting
will mainly focus on core committee business this year.
2. *Draft of the AED20 Triennial Strategic Plan. * We hope to get final
comments on the plan prior to submission to the section. Please review
prior to the meeting and come ready to discuss. If you can't attend in
person, please let me know if you have any comments.
3. *Minutes/slides from the midyear meeting. * Please provide any edits
if you have any.
4. *Workshop announcement.* AED20 is sponsoring one workshop and
co-sponsoring another that are focused around big data issues in
transportation planning on Sunday, January 9. Please see the attached
workshop announcement and consider attending them if you will be at TRB on
Sunday. The focus of the morning session is on using big data to answer
planning questions at a national or state scale, and the afternoon session
is focused on equity considerations when using big data.
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy holiday season. I really hope to
see many of you at TRB in January.
