The Technical Committee serves as a resource for members to stay informed about technical issues related to ITS both in and out of Florida. The subcommittee gives consultants, contractors, educators, students, governments, and manufacturer representatives the ability to discuss existing or new technical standards and products that are used in the industry. The goal of the subcommittee is to have a conference call and/or webinar at least quarterly in order to keep our membership apprised of the latest technology, the usefulness of that technology, share lessons learned, and educate them on the ever-changing technical aspects of our field in Florida.

Additionally, the committee manages the yearly scholarship awards given to students of member universities and recognizes people and projects with ITS Florida Awards who have made significant contributions to the industry.
