Southern_Alberta_StagsFrom its humble beginnings in 1975, the Southern Alberta Section has grown to 240 members in a third of a century. Although most of the membership resides in the Calgary Region, we have members from many smaller towns and cities from Red Deer south to the US border. In general, the section hosts monthly luncheon meetings (September to June) where technical presentations are made to the broad transportation community. The section is also actively pursuing several professional development courses and seminars to provide learning opportunities for the membership.

In 2009, ITESA voted to create a new Chapter for the City of Lethbridge and surrounding region.  This will help us to reach those transportation professionals located in the Lethbridge area, and provide them an opportunity for networking and professional development.
