Dear KCITE Members and Guests

It’s hard to believe that the Kansas City Chapter of ITE was chartered 15 years ago isn’t it? So much has been accomplished over these past 15 years and on behalf of all past leadership I want to thank everyone for your continued commitment and support of KCITE. I am honored to be leading KCITE in its 15th year and preparing for a “sweeter” future.

These are exciting times for the transportation community in the Kansas City Region! Did you know that Kansas City is now the world’s most connected Smart City? And there is so much more happening, like the new KCI single-terminal airport to the possibility of a Hyperloop route connecting St. Louis, Columbia and Kansas City.  As transportation professionals we are in the driver’s seat to the future of transportation (well unless we’re in an autonomous vehicle of course).

As stated in our bylaws the purpose of the KCITE Chapter is the furtherance of traffic and transportation knowledge and relationships between engineers, planners, technicians and others with an interest in the transportation field. Your 2018 board and committee members are already hard at work in accomplishing this by choosing relevant topics, presenters and great venues for this year’s meetings, technical tours and training sessions. If you have any ideas that you would like considered for future meetings, tours or training sessions please let us know, as we want to make sure that we are serving our members’ needs.

KCITE leadership is committed to keeping you motivated, connected and informed; and in addition to this commitment, one of our major goals for 2018 is to open the communication between membership and chapter leadership. We want to hear from you regarding how we are doing as an organization, ways KCITE can be improved, and how we can increase membership and better serve our purpose. Throughout the year please be on the lookout for opportunities to share your feedback, ideas and opinions with us.

I look forward to seeing you all throughout the year at our various KCITE events.


Your 2018 KCITE President,

Lindsay M. Francis
