For the first time in 67 years, the ITE Midwestern District
Annual Meeting will be held jointly with the ITE Western
District in Rapid City, South
Dakota. This meeting will
represent nearly half of the
United States (24 states),
providing an opportunity for a
robust and diverse technical
program, vendor exhibit and
opportunity to network. In
four days, participants will
have to opportunity to gain a year’s worth of PDHs with 12
hours of technical sessions and other presentations. Substantial
student events are planned including three traffic bowls, the Kell
Competition and leadership sessions.

Rapid City is special
place in America. A
walk down Main Street
will put you face to face
with bronze sculptures
of each of the 44
presidents of the United
States. The City of
President’s is best
known for being 25 miles from Mt. Rushmore, but there are two
national parks and two national monuments also within about a
two hour drive (Badlands National Park, Wind Cave National
Park, Jewel Cave National Monument and Devil’s Tower
National Monument) as well as the Crazy Horse Memorial.
Rapid City has free Summers Night concerts downtown every
Thursday and a 4
of July Parade. There are historic 1880’s
railroads, waterparks, reptile gardens, mammoth paleontological
sites, Sturgis (site of the famous motorcycle rally 30 miles
northwest) and Wall Drug (50 miles east). Bring your family for
a once in a lifetime experience!

The word “Dakotah” or “Dakota” is from the Lakota Sioux
language of the indigenous Native American tribe. One of
several definitions of the word is “Joining Together in Friendly
Compact”. What a perfect theme for our joint meeting! Two
districts coming together in the shadow of Mount Rushmore in a
friendly exchange of professional experience, traditions and
ideas. Please join us in Rapid City next June 29 – July 2,
