Driving the future of the industry


As part of ATSSA’s ongoing commitment to drive the future of roadway safety infrastructure, a Young Industry Professionals (YIP) task force has been formed. The YIP initiative kicked off at ATSSA’s 49th Annual Convention & Traffic Expo in Tampa, Florida.


Currently made up of eleven members, the task force has the goal of engaging younger individuals under 40 in the roadway safety infrastructure industry. At ATSSA’s 49th Annual Convention & Traffic Expo, the YIP task force held its first networking event, and set up plans to host future webinars and lunch and learns, as well as having a YIP on each of ATSSA’s committees and councils. 


The YIP group can provide a lot of personal and professional opportunities for its young members. 


Word of mouth about the program and bringing in younger members are important parts of the initiative. Companies with full ATSSA membership can have as many employees as they want within their company added to their membership, and adding its younger employees to ATSSA’s membership,  them the opportunity to get involved.
