Call for nominations! On October 5, Secretary Anthony Foxx will launch the Every Place Counts: Leadership Academy with a kickoff event at USDOT Headquarters in Washington, DC. He will bring together hundreds of community members from across the country to learn how they can stay informed about transportation decisions and bring their insights to the decision-making process. Participants will also have a unique opportunity to provide feedback on the initial version of the Transportation Toolkit and help us make it more user-friendly.

We invite you to nominate yourself or someone from your community. Selected nominees will be invited to participate in the kickoff event. Nominees should have limited experience with transportation decision-making, and should not be paid to work in the field of transportation. USDOT encourages nominations of emerging community leaders who are interested in transportation equity and who would like to expand opportunities in their communities.

To nominate yourself or someone else to participate in the Leadership Academy kickoff event, please complete the nomination form. Nominations are due no later than noon EDT Monday, September 19, 2016.
