Latinos In Transit (LIT) has announced its board of directors for 2022-2023 with three new directors stepping in.
The board also filled all officer positions during LIT’s monthly board meeting in January 2022.
The three new board members include Rick Pulido, VP of business development for National Express Transit Corporation; Mariela Garcia-Colberg, senior program manager of cooperative research programs for the Transportation Research Board (TRB) — National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; and Megan Perrero, associate editor for Mass Transit magazine.
“I joined the LIT family as their mission aligns with what I believe is important to the future success of the transit industry — developing and implementing programs, strategy’s and partnerships with transit leaders and agency’s that seek to create meaningful opportunities for Latinos in transit,” said Pulido.
Garcia-Colberg said she’s excited to spread awareness about TRB.
“I am looking forward to joining a dynamic board and to contribute to the advancement of Latinos. It is also a great opportunity to introduce the LIT membership to what we do at the Transportation Research Board and vice versa,” said Garcia-Colberg.
In addition to its new directors, LIT also elected its officers for this year. Alva Carrasco will continue to service as president of the board and Elizabeth (Liz) Carter will continue in her role as secretary. Eugenio Bonet was selected as the new treasurer and Herold Humphrey was recently chosen to be the vice president.
