The talk is once again turning to transit at the Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership, as the fourth Transit Citizen Leadership Academy (TCLA) begins at Lipscomb University. The TCLA is a collaboration between the Andrews Institute and the Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee, bringing together community leaders from the Middle Tennessee region. Over a seven-session course, state and local speakers address the class and transit officials from across the nation share their best practices and lessons learned via teleconferencing.
Recently, the TCLA received a 2013 Regional Thinking and Action Aware from Cumberland Region Tomorrow.
Lydia Lenker, Managing Director of the Andrews Institute and Director of the TCLA, sits down with Ed Cole, the Executive Director of the Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee, to discuss this unique initiative.
