Both The ITE Western District and ITE International met this summer in Monterey, CA and Austin, TX respectively. Both meetings were very well attended and a lot of good information was shared during the sessions.
The Western District meeting in Monterey was joint hosted by our section and the SF Bay Area section. We had a comprehensive technical program and a great Family Night event at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A special thank you to Justin Link of our section for his leadership as Co-Chair of the conference. You can review the technical program here.
The meeting next year will be in Honolulu, HI. They are already accepting abstracts if you want to participate.
Congratulations to Joe De La Garza from the San Diego section on being elected as the incoming Western District Secretary-Treasurer. His term will start In January 2020. The current list of new District officers in on their website (https://westernite.org/aboutus/current-officers/).
The ITE International Meeting was held in Austin, TX and there were over 1,400 attendees. There were a variety of workshops before and after the technical conference days and lots of opportunity for networking with ITE professionals across the world. The Meeting next year will be in New Orleans, LA and you should consider attending.
