I am a second year master student, interested in transportation planning. I am thinking about joining TRB as a student affiliate and going to their annual meeting in Jan 2012. Is there anyone who's been to the previous meeting? or is a member of TRB? I am wondering what and how much I can get out of the membership and the meeting. (It's pretty expensive! Don't wanna waste the money on it..)
Oh, I'm mostly concerned about quality of their workshops and networking opportunities - I'm going to get a job next summer.
