RICHMOND, Virginia—CDM Smith is pleased to announce that Katy O’Brien-Connell has been named 2018 member of the year by the WTS (Women's Transportation Seminar) Central Virginia Chapter. A member of WTS since 2013, O’Brien-Connell has helped to grow the chapter, encouraging members with diverse professional levels and backgrounds to connect with one another. “I’ve seen our chapter grow in strength and numbers," she said. "It’s a great place for people to learn more about industry topics outside their usual realm and get involved.” With her leadership, the chapter has brought in industry leaders for discussions and facilitated events benefiting local businesses and agencies through educational workshops.
O’Brien-Connell currently serves as head of the chapter’s newsletter committee. Her latest project is leading a website update that will revamp the chapter’s information delivery and provide visitors with new materials. “One of the best parts of being a WTS member is encouraging other women and professionals to get involved in a community outside of the workplace. We’re working hard to provide members and visitors with an improved, interactive experience with updated content that will help us accomplish this.”
