On September 12, the NADO Board of Directors adopted amended bylaws for NADO’s program affiliate RPO America.  The bylaw amendments had been approved by the RPO America membership during the RPO America business meeting on June 29, 2017.  The bylaw updates make the RPO America bylaws consistent with the NADO bylaws adopted in 2015, as well as making other changes to recognize the importance of RTPOs in the membership.  The final bylaws are posted online here (PDF), and members can view a presentation summarizing the changes here (PDF).

As an affiliate of NADO, Rural Planning Organizations of America (RPO America) was established in June 2006 by the NADO Board of Directors to serve as the national professional association for regional and rural transportation planning professionals, practitioners and other interested stakeholders.  Led by the National RPO Council of Peers, RPO America:

  • Enhances the professional and organizational development of rural transportation planners and others by providing information, peer networking, and research initiatives
  • Serves as the national clearinghouse and forum for exchange among its rural transportation stakeholders
  • Sponsors activities to showcase the accomplishments of rural transportation planning organizations to public officials, communities and the private sector
  • Advises NADO and its leadership, membership and management on matters related to rural transportation planning and development
