Bernie's Notes

I'd like to highlight something new that I'm doing with the TCN and Transportation Radio. Yesterday marked the debut of a new series I've begun on ITS organizations around the world. The first show featured Josh Peterman of ITS California discussing his organization and their upcoming annual meeting. I hope to have one new show in this series each month. Next month, I'll feature ERTICO-ITS Europe and the ITS World Congress. My thanks to the series sponsor, Econolite. Please give it a listen and let me know what you think. I'd also welcome you sharing the show with others.
