By Vickie vanRavenswaay, Pelham Transit - With limited professional development funding, every year it is a challenge to determine which professional development opportunities to attend. Being new to the world of providing transit services for the community, in the past I would determine which sessions would be of benefit and attend this annual conference for a half day. This year I felt it was important to attend the full conference; to take in all the sessions, put faces to colleagues I had only spoken to over the past 2 years, and take advantage of the networking opportunities - which were priceless!
