I’m truly looking forward to Railway Interchange 2015 in Minneapolis next month. The first one was held here four years ago and was a huge success. This one promises to be even bigger and better and is by far, the most significant industry event of the year.
I have been honored to serve as president of the International Association of Railway Operating Officers (IAROO) throughout the past year and I am pleased to welcome you to this year’s Railway Interchange event in Minneapolis.
Several years ago, when the leaders of the top U.S. railway associations began planning the first Railway Interchange as a biennial event combining product and service exhibitions with the industry’s leading technical conferences, they envisioned a top-notch event with international attendees and exhibitors.
The Board of Governors of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) has appointed Elizabeth (Beth) S. Caruso, CAE, as Executive Director/CEO, effective Sept. 1, 2015.
