We want to congratulate our very own Dinita Caldwell, who has been appointed vice president of the local chapter of the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO). Dinita is Capital Metro’s interim business development manager and disadvantaged business enterprise officer.
COMTO creates professional and educational opportunities for minorities working in the transportation industry and promotes careers in the field. The Austin chapter provides between $2,000 and $3,000 in scholarships each year to support its members.
Dinita will serve a two-year term and joins President Blanca Juarez (UT Parking and Transportation), Treasurer Cris Lopez (Veolia Transportation) and Secretary Alta Alexander (TxDOT) on the executive board.
