Improve Committee Effectiveness

Continually improve the committee’s operating effectiveness and ability to adapt to changing conditions.  Establish linkages and collaborate with other TRB committees on topics related to transportation pricing.

Activities

  • Undertake a Committee self-evaluation each year to review the previous year’s achievements in light of the strategic plan’s mission and goals.
  • Perform minor updates to the strategic plan annually (update the list of supporting activities).
  • Ensure that Committee membership reflects a balanced composition with regard to geography, gender, race, ethnicity, and organizational affiliation.
  • Update Committee and Subcommittee membership to maintain balanced representation of both established and emerging applications of transportation pricing, across modes, different types of pricing applications, and different points of view.
  • Update “Friends of the Committee” list as a source of new committee, subcommittee and task group membership.
  • Review and update responsibilities for liaison with related TRB committees and other groups.
  • Enhance and maintain the Congestion Pricing Committee web site by posting the Committee Strategic Plan, Committee organization details, presentations and papers from Committee activities and sessions, and a schedule of pertinent events. Include an on-line method for interested people to register as committee “friends” and to comment on proposed activities.
  • Use the Committee web site as an outreach mechanism, by highlighting the Committee purpose and scope and inviting collaboration.
