The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) played an integral part in the development of a training program for Mobility Managers throughout the state of Wisconsin. Ingrid Koch, New Freedom Program Manager and James McLary, Region II and VII FTA Ambassador for United We Ride created a curriculum that was presented in a 3-day conference format over the course of three years. The first training was held in 2008, at College of Menominee Nation in Keshena, WI. At the end of the second year, 18 participants completed the curriculum and received their Mobility Management certification.
In 2010, certified Mobility Managers, with guidance from WisDOT, created and incorporated the Wisconsin Association of Mobility Managers (WAMM). The first group of officers was formed and by-laws were formally adopted. At the end of 2017, Wisconsin Rural and Paratransit Providers (WRAPP) merged with WAMM.
Wisconsin Association of Mobility Managers is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization.
