- Our annual banquet was held on November 15th. We presented the Bill Seymour scholarship to Noah Smith of the University of Kentucky, celebrated the Traffic Bowl students on two successful competitions (read more about that here), and earned $500 from our silent auction to benefit the student chapter and scholarship fund. We also discussed the upcoming SDITE meeting that our section will be hosting in 2022. It seems early to start planning, but this will be a huge event! We need all the help we can get. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please keep an eye out for requests in future newsletters (subscribe here) or email one of our board members.
- We will be planning a winter technical session for January 2020. Stay tuned!

KYSITE is the Kentucky Section of Institute of Transportation Engineers, an organization of professionals that work in the field of transportation engineering and its related applications. KYSITE is part of the Southern District ITE (also known as ITE District 5), which includes nine states in the Southeastern portion of the United States, except Florida.
The Executive Board of KYSITE consists of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, three Directors, and a Section Representative to the Southern District ITE. Fall elections are held each year and the elected officers assume their duties from January through December. Current officers are listed here.
Typically, KYSITE holds four meetings each year as well as Executive Board meetings to discuss business associated with KYSITE, District and ITE international activities along with committee reports. A picnic in September has become the Section’s annual social function and our Annual Meeting in late November or early December provides a setting to install officers and directors. Based on the KYSITE membership, the organization is allowed one Southern District ITE delegate.
Membership is open to transportation engineers and planners throughout the Commonwealth. For more information about KYSITE / ITE offerings, click here.
