NCMM is now accepting poster presentation submissions for NCMM’s 2021 Mobility Management Poster Session. They will be displayed at the Community Transportation Association’s EXPO in Richmond, VA, November 7-11, 2021. Posters will discuss a community transportation challenge and the ways mobility management approaches have helped solve that challenge. Presenters of accepted posters will receive a $500 stipend to help defray their costs in attending the Poster Session.
About the Poster Session
The National Center for Mobility Management has held three annual Mobility Management Poster Sessions, starting in 2016, at the Community Transportation Association of America’s EXPO conference. CTAA’s EXPO is attended by over 1,000 transit agencies, mobility management professionals, and transportation-related entities. The poster sessions give mobility management practitioners a chance to shine and share their innovative practices in an informal setting, open to all EXPO attendees. The EXPO intensive trainings and workshops have brought plenty of interested attendees to the poster sessions and provide good learning opportunities for mobility management professionals, as well.
Selected presenters display their posters during the Trade Fair reception and lunch and respond to EXPO attendees’ questions about the projects described in the posters. A $500 stipend will be mailed to each presenter once EXPO is completed.
