Act TravelWise held a very successful Annual Conference with the theme 'Forward Thinking, Future Planning' on Thursday 25 January 2018 in Birmingham. Thanks to all of you who joined us - including our speakers, workshop leaders and headline sponsor SYSTRA...
In an effort to increase its activity at the regional level, Act TravelWise is seeking to expand its volunteer-based regional teams.
Do you have any members of staff that would benefit from any of the following experience?
- Supporting the coordination of a regional network
- Organising regional events (meetings – which will often include training)
- Raising their profile both regionally and nationally
- Networking with a variety of sustainable travel colleagues (across the public and private sector)
No experience required (and can be at any level – good opportunity for both junior and senior staff), they just need to be keen and willing to take on the role. This will be on a voluntary basis, so the employer will need to allow some work time to carry out the duties (i.e. attending around 2-3 meetings/events per year).
The 16th Annual Transport Practitioners' Meeting (TPM) will be held 5-6 July 2018 in Oxford. Information regarding the call for papers has been published, with a deadline for submissions of 25 January 2018.
Act TravelWise now has a new reduced membership rate of £250 + VAT for micro-businesses. To qualify, a business must not have more than four employees. The updated membership form includes the option to join at the new rate.
