2009 Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference

Salt Lake City, Utah

May 31 - June 2, 2009

Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel

The Center for Transportation Excellence is gearing up for its biannual Transit Initiatives and Communities Conference. This year's conference will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah from May 31 - June 2, 2009. TIC brings together transit agencies, local officials, transportation supporters, advocates, and ballot measure campaign professionals to get the latest information on transportation ballot measures.

Although transportation measures have traditionally done well at the ballot, many communities are uncertain of how to approach voters with local transportation's need for financial support. This year's conference will take an in-depth look at how to pass initiatives and build support for transportation investment in the midst of the current economy.

The TIC Conference features leading national transportation experts, seasoned campaign professionals, and lots of opportunities for interaction and dialogue. Sessions will detail the latest in financial trends, their impact on transportation and how to translate this knowledge into a successful ballot measure.

This year's sessions include:

* Pitching Your Ballot Measure in Tough Economic Times
* Turning Values into Votes through Regional Visioning
* Campaign Tactics: Using New Technologies in Your Campaign
* The Big Picture - Economic Trends, the Recession & Your Ballot Measure
* Building the Transit Vote Coalition
