Volunteers are the foundation of CITE. Members who dedicate their time and expertise play a critical role in the development and maintenance of our programs and services. Volunteer opportunities are available to ALL members, including students.
“Over those years, I met and worked with some incredibly dedicated and talented people who have made a profound difference in my life. So if any of you are considering a volunteer position … don’t hesitate. The benefits in terms of your personal growth and development are exceptional, and more importantly, the opportunity to make a significant contribution to your profession is almost unlimited.”

What does volunteering do for you?
Volunteerism strengthens and stimulates both personal and professional growth. CITE volunteers increase their knowledge base while networking and forming close, meaningful friendships. Through technical participation, volunteers receive personal credibility, which can be useful when negotiating with current and perspective employers. For example, volunteers who write publishable issue papers or journal articles have the added benefit of using the article as credible proof of his/her technical and professional knowledge.
What types of volunteer opportunities are there?
There are several ways for you to get involved as an CITE volunteer. The greatest rewards come from linking your personal strengths and interests with the CITE opportunities available. Below are some of the areas we currently have volunteers working in:
Be a mentor
The future of the profession is in the hands of the students that are exploring a possible career in the transportation industry. It is imperative that CITE members take the time to mentor these students to increase their knowledge, abilities, professional contacts and relationships.
When volunteer vacancies become available they will be sent out via email and our social media channels.
