The ACT Leadership Academy is a professional development and training program for individuals in the field of Transportation Demand Management (TDM). The program identifies, develops, and supports the next generation of TDM industry leaders as well as future leaders of the Association for Commuter Transportation.
ACT, in partnership with the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) at the University of South Florida, offers NetConferences to help TDM professionals learn about timely and relevant topics. ACT chapters serve as the local host for each NetConference, inviting ACT members and visitors to participate.
Looking to reach qualified candidates in the TDM field? ACT’s job postings allow employers to easily target potential employees with experience in transportation demand management. All jobs will be included in the bi-weekly Connections newsletter and posted to ACT’s social media. And there is no charge to post a job.
The ACT Peer Advisory Leaders (or PALs) is a mentoring program intended to encourage members who are either new to ACT or new to the TDM industry and help them develop the skills and knowledge to become leaders in their own jobs, in the TDM industry, and within ACT. The year-long program, from annual conference to annual conference, will match 20 mentors with 20 mentees, with priority given to the most recent Leadership Academy class. It will be up to each pair to determine how they want to work together, but the PALs committee will offer support in a range of ways, including articles, webinars, social media, scheduled check-ins, and more. The mentors will ideally have prior ACT leadership experience and can help guide mentees through the Association at large, their regional chapter, TDM in general, and overall professional development.
