Subject: TRB Centennial - Tell Us Our Story - Please Publicize and Participate


Dear Stacey,


I am writing to you today as Chair of ABJ30 with a request that you forward this email to all members and friends of your committee, and that you encourage them to participate in the activity described below.


TRB would like to get as many responses as possible to the following three questions, which are part of TRB’s April, May, and June “Tell Us ‘Our’ Story” Centennial Challenge.



The deadline to respond to any or all of these questions is July 1, 2020.


The TRB “Tell Us ‘Our’ Story" Centennial Challenge is designed to allow as many of TRB’s volunteers and friends as possible to participate in the TRB Centennial Celebration through the submission of their stories, which make up the TRB story.


In addition to posting responses to these questions on its website and publicizing them via its social media channels, TRB will be producing banners that will display some of the responses to these questions at various 2021 Annual Meeting venues. 


Responses to these questions will dovetail well with the theme for the 2021 Annual Meeting, which is Launching a New Century of Mobility and Quality of Life.


The links above give the option to submit a response in writing (200 words or less) or provide a YouTube link to a short video (60 seconds or less) respondents take with a smart phone.  If submitting a written response, respondents are asked to upload a photo of themselves that will be displayed with their quote.


More information on the Tell Us “Our” Story Challenge is available on TRB’s Centennial Website at https://trbcentennial.nationalacademies.org/tell-us-our-story


If folks have question or need more information, they should feel free to contact me at Rhouston@nas.edu.


Thank you
