Welcome to Portland Chapter!  

The WTS Portland Chapter was established in 1985.  Grace Crunican, former Director of Transportation in Seattle and former Director of the Oregon Department of Transportation, was our first president. The Portland Chapter has been providing Portland members with great technical programs, career support, and networking opportunities since 1985. We have been growing steadily and adding programs ever since. 

WTS is the Premier Transportation Organization and Forum in the Portland Region and State of Oregon.
