Washington, DC Chapter
The Washington Chapter of TRF, formed in the early 1960s, draws its membership largely from Federal agencies, consultants, trade associations, and local universities. Professions represented include economists, attorneys, engineers, accountants, and others. Membership meetings are held at lunchtime, usually the second or third Wednesdays of the month.
Speakers have included the president of Amtrak, the under secretary of Homeland Security, the director of the Congressional Budget Office, and the president of the Association of American Railroads.
Topics span all modes: urban, intercity, international, freight and passenger. The venue in recent years has been the Pier 7 Restaurant, within walking distance of two Metro stations. The largest meeting of the year is held in January concurrently with the Annual TRB Meeting at a restaurant across the street from the primary TRB meeting hotels.
