In recognition of the MPO's work on promoting the importance of transportation and educating the next generation on careers in the industry, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance has awarded the MPO with their 2018 Education Partnership Award. In selecting the Broward MPO, the GFL Alliance wrote:
"The strong and lasting partnerships that the MPO has forged with various entities such as the School Board of Broward County, the FDOT, AASHTO, local municipalities and many others is truly impressive. From projects such as Think Like a Planner and Transportation and Civil Engineering to the organization’s participation in local careers fairs and special events, your dedication to engaging students and training teachers is unwavering. The MPO’s commitment to educating students about career pathways in transportation, planning and engineering in an effort to keep talent in Broward County is something that is very important to the Alliance and is rightly deserving of celebration."
The MPO's work on educating the future generation on careers in transportation will also be honored by the Alliance at their Annual Dinner, to be held on October 18th. We thank the Alliance for honoring our work and look forward to continuing our community education and outreach efforts.
