2020 has been a year like no other. Coronavirus has affected our lives in ways we couldn’t have imaged. We had no idea back in February that Smart Cities, Managing Public Digital Infrastructure, would be our last in-person luncheon for the year.
Fortunately, with the help of technology, we held four successful virtual luncheon meetings this year. We were even able to include some out-of-town guests that would not normally be able to attend in-person luncheons.
We finally launched our new website this year, to provide a better and more collaborative experience for our members, and make registration and payment easier. Our website URL, gttconline.com (which we considered updating earlier this year), has now taken on more relevance.
We encourage you to keep the discussions going on our forum page.
For all our current members who paid the full membership in 2020, we will be extending your membership for 2021 and waiving the membership fees for the year.
As we move into a new, and hopefully better year, I would like to thank the Board, our loyal members, and guests, for keeping alive the dialogue of topical issues relating to transportation policy, planning, operation and service provision across the GTA (a 94-year-old tradition).
On behalf of the Board, I wish you all a very Safe and Happy Holiday Season.
We look forward to seeing you online in 2021.
