ITS America Releases RFPs for Public Relations and Marketing for 2010 Annual Meeting & Exposition

WASHINGTON, August 20, 2009 – The Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) announced today the release of two requests for proposals (RFP) for public relations and marketing services in support of the Society’s Annual Meeting & Exposition, May 3-5, 2010 in Houston, Texas.

ITS America has identified a need for aggressive marketing and public relations campaigns to meet or exceed attendance and public awareness goals. The RFPs can be downloaded below:

*** Search me?

Thanks for doing this – I find the list extremely useful and refer it to colleagues regularly.

It would be enormously helpful to also have a searchable database of these jobs…

Korey Hartwich

(I'll post your comment. How does one go about building and maintaining such a database?

Remember, I do this entirely on my own time. I also have a real job.)

Sorry, Ned, while I'd like to help, I'm a communicator and policy advocate, with minimal tech ability. I just don't know.

I imagine there are at least a few of my fellow readers of the list who have the expertise and perhaps the free time to do something like this if they could take credit. Unfortunately, I do not.

Employee will be expected to use a computer monitor and keyboard extensively, and operate a telephone. Employee must have close up vision for extensive computer work and distance and peripheral vision for driving. Employee must occasionally be able to lift up to 25 pounds.

Hi Mr. Lundquist,

I am writing to ask that you remove my resume from your website. I notice that all of my personal information is posted there for the world to see – address, telephone number, and email – and I'd really like to get rid of it, if possible. I know everything we post these days is fair game for the internet, but I'd really like to get it off if I can.

I'm sure you're busy, but I look forward to hearing from you with a response.

Thank you,
