Officers and Directors



Thanks to all our sponsors, exhibitors, organizers and attendees for making our 2013 Annual meeting a huge success.

To review the presentations, please click on the date tabs below to download the ones that are available.

Please join me in thanking our Conference Planning Committee led by Kenn Fink of Kimley-Horn (one of our Platinum Sponsors). Also, please recognize Jennifer Johnson, Tom Sever, Yancy Bachmann and Ashlyn Morgan for planning and execution. Jim Tolson's golf outing, as always, was a lot of fun. And, special thanks to the AV club, Dino Pampolina and Ken Kenna who kept the presentations running smoothly.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed this learning opportunity and carried away the ITS solutions to make transportation systems better.

Scott Mohler

President, ITS Georgia
