How Regional Districts will support YPT's growth and expansion
To support YPT’s value to members, its growth, and impact on the transportation community, Regional Board of Directors were established as standing committees of the International Board per Article VI of the Bylaws of the Young Professionals in Transportation. Regional Districts were created to increase the inclusiveness of YPT Membership which was previously only focused on local municipal city level (Local Chapters).

As Standing Committees of the International Board, Regional Districts Board of Directors, serve a strategic role to implement and support international policy and initiatives to a regional context to support the organization in several ways as we continue to expand.

YPT Regional District Board of Directors can provide organizationally:
1. Local Support & Strengthen the Leadership Pipeline
2. Catering Regional Programming & Collaboration
3. Supporting Local Chapter Expansion & Membership Growth in Smaller Cities to Rural Areas

1. Local Support & Strengthen the Leadership Pipeline - Create a pipeline for over 125 local chapter leaders to serve at an higher level of responsibility to implement support the YPT International Board policy and initiatives for a larger area encompassing several states/provinces. The Regional District Board of Directors act as a vital coordination and support pillar for local leaders.

2. Catering Regional Programming & Collaboration - Regional districts can help with larger events and programming for members in that region and support local chapters coordination and collaboration. A regional district board can help develop a regional mentorship program that can bring together a larger pool of transportation professionals. Regional awards, regional YPT Conferences, and an annual study tour of a city in regions were some of the many ideas already suggested by local chapter leaders. 

3. Supporting Chapter Expansion & Membership Growth from Smaller Cities to Rural Areas - The standing committees of the regional boards can provide programming at a regional level that provides value to and engages with members & non-members in cities without an active chapter, supporting membership growth and actively cultivate the development of more local chapters in coordination with the International Board.
