The Greater Tampa Section ITE (known as GTSITE) is the Tampa Bay Area Section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers. The Greater Tampa Section ITE was born from the expansion of the Tampa Bay ITE Chapter, which was founded on March 26, 2002 in conjunction with the 2002 ITE Technical Conference in Palm Harbor, Florida.
Members of the Greater Tampa Section of ITE elected an executive board and drafted a Charter and Bylaws that would expand the mission and purpose of the Institute of Transportation Engineers deeper into the greater Tampa Bay area. All ITE members and transportation professionals within Florida’s Hernando, Citrus, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Sarasota, Highlands, Lee, Charlotte, Hardee, Collier, Glades, Hendry and DeSoto counties are eligible to become TBITE Chapter Members.
ITE members and transportation professionals in other surrounding areas are also welcome to join GTSITE. GTSITE organizes lunch meetings every quarter, social functions, and an Annual Awards banquet.
