Welcome to the General Meeting

Thank you to all of our attendees who joined us, both in person and virtually for the afternoon Drug and Alcohol testing workshop (a TAM first!). Our special thanks, once again, to our partners at American and KFH Group, who sponsored this event, as well as to MDOT MTA, our co-host. We were pleased to welcome back Holly Arnold as a guest speaker once again, and look forward to continue working with her and her MTA team to move community transportation forward.
