    Dear RAS Members,

    This year, our roundtable will be focused on the Economic, Market, and Regulatory environment for the rail industry. While this topic was selected prior to the economic shutdowns caused by COVID-19, we could not have chosen a more important year to cover this topic. Our speakers will be covering a wide range of topics including the current state of the economy, current regulatory issues, shifts in transportation modes, the effects of PSR, and new technologies. We have invited four market leaders in understanding these dynamics to speak. Our speakers this year are:

    Todd Tranausky – Vice President of Rail and Intermodal for FTR

    Dan Anderson – Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Product Development at TrinityRail

    Lee Clair – Managing Partner for Transportation and Logistics Advisors, LLC

    David Hunt – Director for Oliver Wyman's Transportation Practice

    Given the new format of this year's INFORMS Annual Meeting, we will be taking questions ahead of time to ask to our participants. If you have a question you would like to ask, please email Daniel Windle at before Friday, September 25th. The presentations and Q&A sessions for this topic will be shown on Monday, November 9th. We look forward to (virtually seeing all of you) at the Annual Meeting!
