ITS Maryland strives for excellence in chapter governance and achievement of goals of providing a forum for coordination, communication, education, training, and outreach among its members.

The Awards and Nominating Committee manages the annual board nomination and election process to ensure fair and smooth transition of the governing body. Through this process, ITS Maryland members are able to nominate and vote for the new officers and members of the Board of Directors.

The Awards and Nominating Committee is also responsible for managing the ITS Maryland Scholarship Awards Program. ITS Maryland recognizes the need to invest in the new generation of engineers, developers, and architects that will be the future of the transportation industry. The scholarship program provides financial assistance to undergraduate and graduate students in need. This competitive program includes several universities in Maryland, DC, and Delaware, and encourages students from different disciplines to apply.

ITS Maryland, as an organization is proud of its accomplishments in the fields of networking, outreach, and advocacy, effective organizational and professional development, and strong and engaging chapter governance.
