Networking Night Success Marks Milestone for Houston Chapter

YPT-Houston had an excellent networking event last night at Local Pour in Houston’s Historic River Oaks District.   In an effort to help connect young professionals with senior transportation executives in the region, YPT partnered with the Transportation Advocacy Group of Houston.   We would also like to thank  LJA Engineering, a multidisciplinary consulting engineering firm, for graciously sponsoring the event.

“This event marks an important milestone for our chapter—never before have we had more than 30 people RSVP to event,” said YPT Houston Chair Nick Norboge. “This event had 45 transportation professionals attend, which is an exciting sign for things to come for our chapter. This wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment by Andrea French of TAG and financial support provided by LJA Engineering.”

YPT’s next event entitled “Wheels of Change – Cycling’s Role in Cities of the Future” will be held on August 21st, 11:30 am – 1 pm at the Energy Corridor District offices located at 14701 St. Mary’s Lane, Suite 290 Houston, TX 77079.   Interested persons are encouraged to register online at
