Event Details

The Colorado State Pupil Transportation Association (CSPTA) is excited to announce the annual summer workshop being held this year at Colorado State University Pueblo. It will be another jam-packed week of learning and networking. 

Message from the Board
I want to welcome you to our 2021 CSPTA  Transportation Summit. We are excited to be back in Pueblo. The new look and feel of CSU Pueblo is amazing. CSPTA has always existed to provide support for all school districts, and moving back to Pueblo will be an opportunity to see new faces and provide access to other districts. Our organization has worked hard this year to put classes and events together for you. We will have a keynote speaker and in honor of our theme "Transporting the Leaders of Tomorrow", and this year we will be providing more leadership classes. On behalf of the CSPTA board and Committees, we look forward to seeing you all there.

Albert Samora
CSPTA President

Dave Davlin

Success can be defined in its simplest form as making life better for someone else. Whether it comes in creating a better product, helping to relieve someone’s stress or pain, bringing someone laughter or joy or helping someone get more out of their life, success is always about serving.

This being the case, the key to success in any business lies not only in the development of great products and services, but more importantly in the development of great people. In this insightful presentation, Dave Davlin shares three essential ingredients for developing a purpose-driven mentality to achieve a fulfilling career and balanced life.

This presentation is an hour of interaction, humor, audience participation mixed with a powerful message. It is a roller coaster ride of emotion that will find the audience engaged in hilarious laughter one moment and brought to tears the next.

The audience will be challenged to make the most of every moment in order to develop themselves personally and professionally while creating value and making a difference in the lives of others
