Join us November 5, 2020 for an interactive, virtual Transportation Reception honoring the venerable Karen Stuart. Commissioner Stuart wears many important and impactful transportation hats. She is Chairwoman of the Colorado Transportation Commission, Executive Director of Smart Commute Metro North - a regional transportation management association - and was instrumental in securing grant-funding, in partnership with RTD for the first-ever flex ride connecting Wagon Road Park-n-Ride with St. Anthony’s Hospital, Denver Premium Outlets and Amazon DEN 3 warehouse. This circulator provides transit-dependent employees with reliable employment transportation building the economic base and opportunity in the north metro region. In addition to these notable achievements, Commissioner Stuart is also a former three-term Mayor of the City and County of Broomfield. She has held leadership roles with the Denver Regional Council of Governments, the US36 Mayors and Commissioners Coalition, the Metro Mayors Caucus and the National League of Cities Transportation Advisory Committee. As Chair of the Northwest Parkway Public Authority, Stuart was an active member of the International Bridge Tunnel and Turnpike Association (IBTTA) and a key negotiator for the NWP’s Concession Lease Agreement in 2007. In 2015 Stuart received the Denver Regional Council of Governments’ Distinguished Service Award. Stuart was appointed to the Transportation Commission in 2017 and to the HPTE Board in 2019.

WTS Colorado is beyond excited to honor Commissioner Stuart at this year’s Transportation Reception and can’t wait to see what accomplishments she will achieve on the horizon. Thank you, Karen, for being a woman leader in our transportation community!

Event details: This year’s reception will involve group networking via breakout rooms, a moment with our honoree as a full collective and the opportunity to enjoy libations and snacks from local restaurants via a swag bag with registration. We can’t wait to see you there!
