BOARDS & COMMITTEES
All meetings are open to the public and governed by the Kansas Open Meeting Act. You can find meeting agendas and notices of special or cancelled meetings on our website or by requesting them from our office. WAMPO fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. Agendas from previous meetings are available upon request.
The Transportation Policy Body (TPB) is made up of local elected officials as well as regional and state representatives. The TPB develops and implements WAMPO's transportation plans and makes the final approval of these documents and any amendments to them. The TPB is our regional forum for transportation planning and establishes the vision for the future of our transportation system.

They also help with the adoption of transportation documents such as the annual Transportation Improvement Program.
The Transportation Policy Body (TPB) first created the WAMPO Executive Committee in January 2014.
