Minnesota Chapter

Minneapolis and Saint Paul are host to the Minnesota Chapter of the Transportation Research Forum. Established in 2018, Frank Douma leads the group which includes members from the public, private, government and non-profit sectors.

The chapter hosts quarterly Brown Bag seminars over the lunch hour.

New members are welcome. Membership includes the opportunity to participate in event planning, national conversations and collaborate with others.

Students are encouraged to attend chapter events and consider joining at the discounted student rate to deepen connections to leaders in transportation and participate in poster or panel discussions about their own research.
