Welcome
 

Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, Branson, Missouri has long been a popular destination for travelers. With a resident population of only 11,000, Branson routinely welcomes and entertains thousands of visitors from across the U.S. (and world). Located near the geographic center of America’s heartland, Branson is an ideal location to showcase the 2014 National Rural ITS Conference theme “ITS in the Heartland”!

Experience all that Branson’s small-town charm, excellent meeting facilities and many entertainment options have to offer while networking with transportation professionals from across the country. Numerous technical sessions, training opportunities and professional tours await attendees. Plan on joining us in Branson in 2014!

Why Attend? This conference will provide participants an opportunity to network and share experiences within and across a wide variety of ITS disciplines. In addition to traditional ITS topics, this event will bring together both traditional and non-traditional ITS users to address such issues as rural safety, multi-agency coordination, and workforce development, as well as EMS and transit issues.

The many different training and networking opportunities available through this event will provide participants with the tools necessary to effectively plan and deploy ITS technologies within their own jurisdictions.

Who Should Attend? Public and private transportation, transit, tourism, enforcement, trucking, public safety and medical service professionals engaged in the operations, maintenance, and use of our transportation system should attend this Conference. Elected and appointed officials, business and community leaders and emergency responders and public safety personnel will contribute to the rich dialogue while learning about the technical challenges facing the transportation community.

The ITS America Rural SIG is now seeking applications from those who would be interested in hosting future NRITS meetings for 2015 and beyond. Begun in 1992, the National Rural ITS Conference provides an opportunity for attendees to network and share experiences across a wide variety of ITS disciplines while focusing on the unique and varied challenges of deploying ITS in a rural environment. It invites both traditional and non-traditional ITS users to address such issues as rural safety, road weather information systems, wireless communications, creating and maintaining livable/sustainable communities, multi-agency coordination and many others. A questionnaire and guidelines have been developed to assist prospective host organizations in determining the logistic requirements for NRITS. Proposals must be submitted by November 30, 2013 (for the 2015 conference) or June 13, 2014 (for the 2016 conference).

 
 

Public Sector Scholarship Fund. The Public Sector Scholarship Fund is a tool for increasing public sector participation in the National Rural ITS (NRITS) Conference. Funds are disbursed in increments of $500 to individuals who are attending the NRITS Conference for the first time. Preference is given to individuals whose employing agency has not sent an attendee to the conference in the past year. Applicants must be public sector employees and must complete an application to be considered. The number of scholarships awarded will be based, in part, on available funds. While all applications must be received by Friday, July 11, 2014, it is recommended that you apply early as funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. An application can be downloaded by clicking here.
