Ratified in May 2020, the New Hampshire WTS Chapter has enjoyed growing our chapter within WTS organization. WTS New Hampshire is working to expand member offerings such as technical presentations and networking opportunities.
WTS International was founded in 1977 by a group of pioneering women in transportation who realized that women’s careers would benefit from professional development, encouragement and recognition to support their advancement in transportation professions. Now, after more than 40 years of growth and development, WTS is an international organization with more than 6500 members (including women and men) and 79 chapters. WTS is connected to a network of 40,000 transportation professionals. As part of the WTS network, WTS New Hampshire is helping women find opportunity and recognition in the transportation industry. Through professional activities, networking opportunities, and unparalleled access to industry and government leaders, WTS is turning the glass ceiling into a career portal.
WTS stands for Women’s Transportation Seminar, which was how it was named when founded in 1977 when women couldn’t get subsidized for association memberships unless they were educational. But times have changed, and now joining an association is an opportunity women and men can take advantage of to work together and benefit each other in their careers.
WTS New Hampshire is always looking for members, volunteers, public partners and corporate sponsors. If you are interested in getting involved or have any questions, please contact our chapter leaders.
