ARTBA senior staff will preview the November presidential and congressional elections, and the more than 40 ballot initiatives the association is tracking during an Oct. 6 general session at the National Convention in Tucson.  ARTBA’s Chief Economist Dr. Alison Premo Black will also offer an early look at her 2017 economic forecast.

The convention is being held at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Arizona. The room cutoff is Sept. 30, so register now.

Caterpillar Chief Doug Oberhelman will be on hand Oct. 6 to deliver his thoughts on “The State of American Business.” The agenda also features an Oct. 5 Political Action Team reception and equipment demonstration at Caterpillar’s Tinaja Hills facility.

See the convention website for the full schedule of events. For more information on sponsorship opportunities, contact ARTBA Vice President of Meetings & Events Ed Tarrant.
