2018 GAITE Affiliate Membership Application 

 What is ITE?

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is an international professional society with members in more than 90 countries.  ITE is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and includes a worldwide network of almost 17,000 transportation engineers, planners, and others responsible for safe and efficient movement of people and goods on streets, highways, and transit systems.  Since 1930, ITE has been providing transportation professionals with programs and resources for increased knowledge and advancement.  ITE programs and resources include professional development seminars; technical reports; a monthly journal; local, regional, and international conferences; publication of technical manuals; and exchange of opinions, ideas, techniques, and research.

ITE members are employees of government agencies, regional planning offices, consulting firms, educational institutions, product manufacturers, university students and other transportation-related disciplines.

If you're engaged in planning, designing, operating, managing, or maintaining surface transportation systems and equipment, or studying or researching transportation, ITE can meet your needs for ongoing professional development.  Through monthly journals and technical reports, you will be apprised of research, applications, and innovations in the field.  Annual meetings, conferences, seminars and local section meetings offer top notch technical presentations and speakers, along with social gatherings for informal sharing of ideas.  ITE technical committees and specialty councils provide the opportunity to participate in shaping policies, developing recommended practices and establishing standards.

Benefits of Joining ITE

There are two ways for joining the Georgia Section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers, Inc.

1. You can join as an International Member of ITE through the International office in Washington, D.C. (see for information about joining International ITE).  If you are an International Member, you are automatically a Georgia Section Member and part of your International Dues will go to the Georgia Section.

2. It is also possible to join the Georgia Section as a “Section Affiliate” without belonging to the International Organization. The application is the first step in that process.

 Some of the benefits of joining ITE are:

  • Weekly e-blasts to keep the membership updated on current and upcoming activities.
  • Reduced registration for monthly luncheon programs presented by transportation professionals (normally held on the second Thursday of the month);
  • Networking with fellow professionals;
  • Increased awareness of the current and future trends in worldwide transportation technology;
  • Increased awareness of local trends in transportation;
  • Opportunities to participate in local conferences and learn of various aspects of the profession;
  • Opportunities to participate in regional and international conferences to keep abreast of the latest innovations in transportation technology
  • Technical committees that provide input to local policy decisions;
