WTS Women to Be Highlighted at CMAA Conference in Chicago

September 13, 2012 02:19 PM

At 2012’s foremost gathering of professional construction and program managers, the CMAA Conference and Trade Show in Chicago, attended by more than 1,000 professionals, a presentation titled "Leadership Perspectives from Top Women Transportation Leaders" will be co-presented by WTS.  

The dynamic “Leadership Perspectives” session will feature the top four women in Illinois transportation (who are also WTS members) as they share their leadership perspectives on how they've developed key skills needed to be leaders in a male-dominated industry. Attendees will hear about the changes these executives are bringing to their organizations and the industry through innovative vision, collaboration, management, performance, and expectations.

Program Panelists

  • Ann Schneider – Secretary of Transportation, Illinois Department of Transportation
  • Kristi Lafleur – Executive Director, Illinois Tollway
  • Paula Wolfe, Chair, Illinois Tollway Board of Directors


  • Liz Levin, Director, Massachusetts Department of Transportation and MBTA

The conference, to be held at the Sheraton Chicago Oct. 21 – 23, 2012, will also feature a keynote address by Dr. Robert Cialdini, New York Times Bestselling author of Influence: Science and Practice and Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, and  David Hoffmeister, Executive in Residence for the Center of Sales Leadership.  Also included in the conference are more than 30 educational breakout sessions, a special presentation on energy/power sector trends, a panel discussion of CMAA Foundation’s “FutureFocus 2012+” report, and technical tours
