" The Leadership Imperative: Awaking the Leader Within"

Today's engineers and geoscientists face many challenges: changing technologies, global competition and the growing demands of clients, employees, shareholders and stakeholders. A new kind of leader is needed; one who thrives on change, who fosters innovative environments and who is able to lead successfully into the third millennium.

But… what distinguishes exceptional leadership from ordinary leadership? It is not simply an awareness of practices, vision, mission and values alone. The key to unlocking the leader within is a passion and enthusiasm that originates from the heart.

In this evening session, through a series of lectures, dialogues, group discussion and self-assessments, you will understand leadership and management and why both are important. You will understand the concept of leadership as it applies to personal development, team building and organizational development. You will gain a greater understanding of your personal vision and mission and formulate plans for approaching specific issues and challenges affecting you, your position and your business.

We hope you will find some "Kindling" that may allow you to re-ignite the fire of understanding and passion for yourself, your work and for those you lead.

Pre-Registration and advance payments are required. Seating is limited and registrations will be dealt with on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please call the Calgary APEGGA office at 262-7714 to register before Thursday, September 12, 2002. The Calgary Branch now accepts Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. Please note: A light snack will be provided.

Brian Latte, P.Eng., PTOE
Senior Associate, Transportation

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is defined as "the application of advanced technologies and new processes to improve the efficiency, mobility, and safety of the transportation system." In the United States, the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) has recognized that ITS does and will continue to play a key role in addressing urban congestion and improved mobility for people and goods on the highway system.

In 1996, the FHWA chose 4 metropolitan areas to become models for TS deployment. The Phoenix metropolitan area was one of these and received $7.5 million in special federal funding to launch what became known as AzTech.

The AzTech project was launched in 1999 and work is progressing, enhancing and expanding with phases 2 and 3. While AzTech achieved many successes, there have also been areas where it did not succeed to the level expected. As more Canadian cities explore how ITS can address their transportation issues, it will become increasingly important to look at the experiences in other jurisdictions to ensure that ITS is able to deliver to a level consistent with expectations.
