Agenda AHB50
  • TRB Committee Member Survey

20
TRB Survey
  • Reasons cited most often for originally deciding
    to volunteer to participate on a TRB standing
    committee included keeping informed, networking
    with peers, supporting the goals of the
    committee, and contributing to the profession.
  • Professional contacts and networking,
    relationships with colleagues, and learning from
    others were the benefits valued most from
    participation in TRB standing committees.
  • Almost all respondents listed contributions that
    they feel they are making to transportation
    and/or to society through their service as a TRB
    volunteer, including advancing a field or
    discipline, solving problems, advancing best
    practices, and guiding quality research and
    publications.
  • Suggestions for what TRB could do to further
    enhance experiences as a TRB volunteer included
    providing more communications and facilitating
    information sharing, increasing transparency in
    committee operations, and addressing the barriers
    to attending meetings.
  • Enhancing the outreach information and tools
    targeted to young professionals, their employers,
    and TRB university representatives was
    recommended to attract and involve new and young
    volunteers to TRB standing committees.

21
TRB Survey
  • The Technical Activities Council is using these
    responses to identify the highest priority action
    items to accomplish the following strategies
  • Identify and address emerging critical and
    cross-cutting issues.
  • Increase the involvement of key constituencies
    and groups.
  • Identify research needs, monitor ongoing
    research, and ensure the effective sharing of
    research results.
  • Optimize the effectiveness and value of the TRB
    annual meeting and conferences.
  • Ensure the quality, stature, accessibility and
    usefulness of TRB publications and products.
  • Take maximum advantage of new technologies,
    communications, and information innovations.
  • Ensure the effectiveness of standing committees
    and recognize research leadership.
