Leadership Academy

The IBTTA Leadership Academy was founded in 2008 by the IBTTA Foundation Board of Directors. It is an executive development program tailored specifically for mid to senior-level managers in public and private sector organizations that serve the toll industry. The Leadership Academy is funded by student tuition fees. The curriculum varies every year and spans all facets of toll agency operations, administration, finance, marketing, business development, board relations, public affairs, and related topics. The week-long course is taught and directed by Barbara K. Gannon, Psy.D. of Gannon Consult. Dr. Gannon has designed and delivered education and training programs in the transportation sector for over 20 years. She is joined by Maggie Wilkins of Wilkins Strategies and numerous distinguished instructors from the public and private sectors. This annual program is held every February in Washington, DC.    The 2022 Leadership Academy took place February 13-18, 2022 in Washington, DC.
