Shady Elshetwy Named Deputy Chair Of YPT Philadelphia
Burns congratulates Shady Elshetwy, a Civil Associate in our Aeronautical Group, on his recent election to the Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) Philadelphia Chapter Board of Directors as Deputy Chair for the 2014-2015 term. YPT Philadelphia provides professional development, fellowship, and networking opportunities for young professionals and students in the transportation industry.
Shady has been a member of YPT since the chapter first started in Philadelphia in 2012, and has played an integral role in the chapter’s development over the last 2 years. Shady presented an overview of Burns’ Philadelphia International Airport Runway 9R Replacement Localizer project at the chapter’s first annual “Transpo Roundup”, an event designed to bring together YPT members, guests and friends to discuss current transportation projects from around the Philadelphia region. Shady has brought many new members to YPT and is currently working with the leadership team to plan new and exciting events to help grow the organization.
We are proud of Shady’s involvement in the professional community, and we look forward to the upcoming events offered by the Chapter’s new leadership.
