In 1971, a small group of Wisconsin transportation leaders founded TDA to advance the development of an efficient, effective, and safe transportation system. Their efforts drew the increasingly strong support of businesses, individuals, communities, and organizations involved in every transportation mode. TDA grew in size, respect, and influence.
Today, TDA is a prime Wisconsin resource for a clear analysis of transportation finance and policy and is a crucial participant in Wisconsin’s transportation planning process. TDA serves more than 400 members and stakeholders and is recognized for nonpartisan expertise, advocacy, and leadership on transportation issues.
The strength and diversity of TDA’s membership are represented in the men and women who have served as TDA presidents throughout the years. From city managers to business executives to civic group leaders, the TDA presidents listed here have helped build TDA into an influential and respected voice for transportation in Wisconsin.
Jason Culotta, President of the Midwest Food Products Association, is the current TDA president.
TDA’s highest honor, the Transportation Service Award, is presented annually to members or public officials who have significantly advanced the cause of a safe, modern, interconnected transportation system in Wisconsin. TDA is proud to recognize the distinguished leadership and significant contributions made by the honorees listed here.
