By Allison Klein, vice president of member services, ARTBA

ARTBA is looking for presentation ideas, topics and experts who could be part of our 2017 webinar program, an efficient way to deliver information and educational content that member firms can use to run their business operations more efficiently and profitably. Last year, the association hosted 24 webinars featuring leading industry professionals sharing their expertise on a variety of issues impacting transportation development.

Webinars can be done remotely or live at the ARTBA Building in Washington, D.C.  ARTBA staff will put together the technical arrangements. Presentations typically last 60 minutes, including a Q & A segment.

Topics of past webinars have included:

  • Project Delivery
  • Innovation
  • P3s
  • Economics
  • Construction Claims
  • Insurance & Surety Issues
  • Safety
  • DBE Compliance
  • Risk Management

If you have a proposed topic and suggested speaker, please email me by Feb. 8 with the speaker name(s), presentation title, short description, and other details. Webinars should not be “sales pitches” for a particular product or service.

Thanks for your assistance. I look forward to receiving your ideas.
