Utah Section Board

ITE Utah Section officers are dedicated transportation professionals who volunteer their time in developing, promoting, and managing Chapter functions throughout the year. Each individual will spend four years as an officer, starting out as the Treasurer, then stepping up a position each year, eventually becoming President. Being an officer of ITE has many benefits in networking and educational opportunities, and has proven to be a rewarding experience. We encourage all of our members to consider volunteering their time and supporting our mission.
