The University of Toronto Transportation Alumni Network (UTTAN) hosted a successful evening reception at U of T's elegant Massey College Common Room on February 9, 2023.
The event featured light refreshments and an opportunity to catch up with fellow alumni, faculty, friends and students who are all working in the transportation field.
Ann Marie Chung, UTTAN Executive Committee Chair, and Professor Eric Miller, Mobility Network Director, each addressed the crowd with a warm welcome to celebrate the in-person gathering and the waning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The support of sponsors was also acknowledged with gratitude.
Thank you to everyone who came out for our 2023 UTTAN Transportation Alumni reception last night! We were joined by transportation professionals working across disciplines at various stages of their careers, sharing ideas, catching up and making new friendships.
Supporting and strengthening Toronto's community of transportation professionals is part of our core mandate and we're thrilled that this event could contribute to that.University of Toronto Transportation Alumni Network (UTTAN) LinkedIn post, February 10, 2023.
