My name is Tyler O’Hare and I was recently awarded the opportunity, through the generous support of Austraffic and ITE, to attend the TRB annual meeting in Washington D.C in early January.
I was overwhelmed and nervous with the thought of attending a conference with 10,000 other professionals, however, in the space of 6 days, I had presented to a room of engineers, spoken with countless international experts, rode a fully autonomous bus, met the ITE board and even snuck a photo with the prestigious Traffic Bowl trophy!
Although the trip was brief, it contributed significantly to my personal and professional growth. The countless learnings I take from attending the TRB annual meeting will assist me greatly in my future development.
