Optional Contribution to TRB Minority Student Fellows Program: The TRB Minority Student Fellows Program is intended to promote minority participation in transportation and TRB. Now in its fifth year, the program provides financial assistance for minority students from a number of historically black colleges and universities and other minority-serving institutions to attend and present a research paper at the TRB Annual Meeting. Each institution selects a highly qualified graduate student or advanced undergraduate in a transportation-related curriculum to participate in the program. The institutions also designate a faculty member to oversee the work of each student and to accompany the student to the TRB Annual Meeting. Your support will help TRB sustain and expand this important program.
Optional Chairman's Luncheon Ticket: A separate ticket is required for The Chairman's Luncheon program, which includes the introduction of new Executive Committee members and officers, a keynote speaker, and presentation of TRB’s most prestigious awards.
Young Professional Registration Category: TRB is committed to fostering the professional development of young professionals in transportation. The Young Professional registration category is for practicing transportation professionals aged 35 years or younger. The Annual Meeting education sessions and networking opportunities for young transportation professionals provide an ideal way to become more involved in TRB and the industry.
TRB Sponsor Registration Category: One of the benefits of being a year-round $65,000+ Sponsor of TRB’s Core Programs is receiving unlimited complimentary registrations to the TRB Annual Meeting for TRB Sponsor employees. To qualify for the complimentary rate, registrants must be an employee of a TRB Sponsor during the Annual Meeting. It is illegal for private contractors, retired employees, or others to register as an employee of a government agency. When registering, TRB Sponsor employees should be sure to use a work email address and to select the specific name of the TRB Sponsoring organization (view the current list of TRB Sponsors). For example, employees of agencies within U.S. DOT must select the Sponsoring agency name rather than entering “U.S. DOT” as the organization name.
Registration and Payment Options: Online registration with payment by credit card (American Express, MasterCard, or VISA) is strongly recommended. To pay by check (payable to TRB in U.S. funds drawn on a U.S. bank), print the registration form. Check payments require additional processing time and if payment is not received, registration materials cannot be distributed without a credit card guarantee of payment. Note: If a hotel reservation is requested, a credit card number is required for arrival guarantee (the card is not charged). Only domestic government agencies and universities may submit purchase orders (Federal Identification 53-0196932). Wire transfers are not accepted.
