Presidents Message

The first quarter has come and gone and our chapter has been very busy providing quality programs and topics of interest from a multi-modal perspective.  Our leadership team has unveiled a new website for our chapter and we hope that you find it easy to navigate.

Our January program provided an overwhelming attendance of over 100 guests to hear more about the Toyota’s current opportunities and discussed inclusive mobility and its impacts to our communities.  Toyota hosted us at their North Texas headquarters and all attendees came away with a “wow” impression of the company’s progressive goals and strategies that included the North Texas Region.  There is more to come regarding future Toyota engagement with our chapter.

Our executive team continues to meet monthly and our team has been very aggressive to partner with our minority organizations and collaborations continue with the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association (RHCA), Women in Transit Seminars (WTS), and the Greater Dallas Planning Council (GDPC).

In February, we hosted two Garrett A. Morgan ”Shadow Days”, one at the Fort Worth Transportation Authority and one at DART.  Each location provided the students with a tour of their facilities and a luncheon program (Pictures).  We had a total of 40 students participate in these tours

In March, we held a membership reception to recruit new members and had a turnout of over 40 guests and we showcased our 2018 Golf Scholarship Tournament, April 6, at the Cowboy Golf Course.  Photos are displayed in our Photo Gallery. (Pictures)

Our April 6, we held our 14th Annual Golf Scholarship Tournament at the Cowboys Golf Course.  It was a huge success and we exceeded our fundraising goals for our 2018-19 scholarship program.  Many thanks to our sponsors – Archer Western Herzog JV, Ferrovial Agroman US Corp, North Texas Transit Constructors, Austin Commercial, Austin Bridge & Road, QMF, The Rios Group, Taylor Construction, Renaissance Contractors, Dikita Engineering, KAI Texas, CSJ Engineering Assoc.
