CTAA’s annual Small Urban Network (SUN) Conference – now heading into its eighth year – allows chief executives and leaders at small-urban transit agencies a chance to gather with their peers to network, share ideas and solutions and shape CTAA policy strategy impacting small urban systems in a collegial, retreat-like setting. Past SUN Conference attendees have noted they enjoy this event in particular due to its focused agenda and because nearly all its participants are their fellow transit managers and executives. After our past SUN Conferences in Denver, Asheville, Flagstaff, Athens, Missoula, now Manchester continues our trend of bringing this event to small cities, where attendees can experience the examples and ideas of their peers in action.
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) and its members believe that mobility is a basic human right. From work and education to life-sustaining health care and human services programs to shopping and visiting with family and friends, mobility directly impacts quality of life.
