The Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE) appointed Bruce Beames and Anthony Kwok to its Board of Directors during the Annual CITE Conference held in Ottawa this past month.
Both Bruce and Anthony are ready for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of them as Board appointees and look forward to working together with CITE to promote the profession of transportation engineering and planning. As Board members, they will liaise with the Canadian District of ITE on behalf of their regional Sections.
