ARTBA’s four annual regional meetings this fall have been expanded to include additional networking opportunities and content developed by the Industry Leader Development Council (ILDC), pursuant to the direction approved by the ARTBA Board last fall.
Each of the events will include a professional development workshop created by the ILDC leadership that seeks to connect and provide an interactive learning experience for long-time ARTBA members and graduates of the Industry Leader Development Program (ILDP)—formerly known as the Young Executive Development Program. Here are the meeting dates and workshop topics:
- Oct. 26-28, Southern Regional, New Orleans, La.: “Artificial Intelligence and Impacts on the U.S. Construction Industry”
- Oct. 26-28, Western Regional, Austin, Texas: “Autonomous Vehicles and the Impact on Infrastructure”
- Nov. 2-4, Central Regional, Chicago, Ill.: “The Impacts of Millennials on the U.S. Transportation Construction Industry”
- Nov. 2-4, Northeast Regional, Atlantic City, N.J.: “Innovative Technology for Transportation Projects”
Of course, the Southern, Western, Central and Northeast meetings will continue to include transportation construction market and project intelligence, presidential and congressional election previews, and federal transportation policy, regulatory and safety updates that have been a core part of the program over the years.
ILDP Chair Ponch Frank, of Ranger Construction; Vice Chair Jihane Fazio of AECOM, and four regional chairs and four regional vice chairs planned the regional meeting agendas earlier this year.
