May Luncheon Program

11:30 AM - 01:30 PM Central Standard Time

WTS is pleased to host a luncheon program with Joseph C. Szabo, the Administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

The mission of the FRA is to enable the safe, reliable, and efficient movement of people and goods for a strong America, now and in the future.  Mr. Szabo is a fifth generation railroader who, between 2006 and 2009, was Vice President of the Illinois AFL-CIO. He has served as mayor of Riverdale, Illinois, a member of the South Suburban Mayors Transportation Committee, and Vice Chairman of the Chicago Area Transportation Study’s Executive Committee. In 2002, he chaired the Governor’s Freight Rail Sub-Committee and, in 2005, was assigned by the United Transportation Union International to the FRA’s Railroad Safety Advisory Committee (RSAC), where he participated in the development of rail-safety regulations. Mr. Szabo has served on the Executive Council of Chicago Metropolis 2020, focusing on Land Use Planning and Transportation issues and was a member of the Chicagoland Metropolitan Planning Council. 

Mr. Szabo will share his perspective on key railroad issues nationwide including High Speed Rail initiatives and Chicago region rail projects and challenges.  Please join WTS for our May monthly luncheon program.
