Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) Research Engineer Jason Crawford has been appointed chair of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Coordinating Council. Crawford’s two-year appointment began Jan. 1.
The ITE Coordinating Council provides leadership and coordination across the technical and employer councils’ activities. The ITE councils “enhance professional collaboration and advance the technical body of knowledge through communities of common interests, providing value to the ITE membership at large,” according to ITE’s website.
“Being appointed chair of the coordinating council is a true honor,” Crawford says. “I view the councils as the heartbeat of ITE, providing the most value to members.”
Crawford, who also leads TTI’s Research and Implementation Division, has been extremely active with ITE, beginning with his student membership and continuing through various elected positions.
