I volunteer with AITPM because I get to collaborate and work with a bunch of passionate industry professionals, who are also just lovely people in general. My experience on the committee has expanded my knowledge and connections in the industry. Also, I find it rewarding to help deliver events for my peers.
Alice Shi, Senior Traffic Engineer, Cardno
As a recently arrived expat, I wanted to feel more connected to the industry. Volunteering with AITPM has allowed me not merely to meet others in our industry, but to strengthen my relationship with them by actively working together. I also believe that entities such as the AITPM has a role to play in disseminating information (and educating people), as we do via technical sessions. It therefore gives me a sense that I am contributing to the general betterment of the industry, which in turns improves better outcomes for clients, and ultimately results in a better world for the current and future generations.
Berino Lorio, SMEC
Professionally, I have developed key industry contacts and being a committee member has helped grow my confidence and leadership skills. On a personal level being a committee member help me stay connected to the working world whilst I was on maternity leave.
Manesha Ravji, Associate: Transport, Ratio Consultants
Participating on the AITPM committee has been valuable to gain exposure within the industry and grow my network (which has been crucial for me being still relatively new to transport). It has also been fantastic for my professional development, in particular through learning about all the great things being achieved within the industry (failures included!). Continued learning is important and is something I'm passionate about - AITPM offers this to its membership.
