The RTA team is growing.  It is a common phrase in business and elsewhere that success is a team sport. In this week’s Thursday Thoughts at 3 blog post I welcome several members of the RTA team. For this weekly member briefing I provide the following summary:

I also want to commend my Raleigh Chamber colleagues for their ongoing assistance, support, and more than two decades of partnership. We rely on our fellow Chamber staff colleagues for administrative, information technology, communications, billing and financial, event management, and other support and expertise including government affairs, economic development and innovation. The majority of the Raleigh Chamber staff has provided assistance on some aspect of next week’s RTA Leadership Tour to South Florida, in particular events manager Amy Crum. You can view the entire Raleigh Chamber staff directory here.


Thank you for your partnership, and for your commitment to growing regional business leadership on mobility.

Let’s get moving,


Joe Milazzo II, PE
