On July 20, the Chapter hosted a special reception for Susan Bransen, the newly appointed Executive Director of the California Transportation Commission (CTC) with a wine tasting event.
The celebration was held in Oakland at the Downtown Wine Merchants in Frank Ogawa Plaza. Guests celebrated with Susan as they tasted a sampling of six wines made by women winemakers. The event also featured sponsorship opportunities and a wine-themed raffle to benefit the WTS Scholarship Foundation. The firm sponsors for this event were Wilson Ihrig, WSP | Parson Brinckerhoff, and HDR. The sold-out evening was a great success, and the Chapter was able to raise additional scholarship funds to support young women pursuing degrees in the transportation industry.
WTS-SF takes pride in honoring the achievements of both men and women in the transportation industry when they receive a promotion, appointment, or new, high-level opportunity. For this reception, we were honored to toast Susan and congratulate her on her achievements to date.
