Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to join ARTBA?

The annual ARTBA dues investment for a private sector firm is based on the value of the firm’s sales or work volume in the U.S. transportation construction market during the previous year.

The dues investment for public agencies and educational/research institutions is available at an individual or group rate.

The ARTBA membership application has all the details.

ARTBA’s Vice President of Member Services Allison Klein ( or ARTBA Field Director Rob Regier ( are also available to answer your questions.

Is the membership a corporate or an individual membership?

Membership—with the exception of the Transportation Officials Division (TOD) and Research & Education (RED) Division—is for the whole organization.  Once a firm joins ARTBA and pays the applicable volume dues amount, it is encouraged to add as many employees as possible to the membership roster.  This will allow them to take advantage of all ARTBA programs, and they will receive the digital ARTBA “Washington Newsline” and be added to the industry’s network of grassroots advocates.

The membership application spells out the requirements for individual and group rates for the TOD and RED divisions.

Once my firm joins, can I access ARTBA’s membership database?

Yes.  Once your firm, public agency or educational/research institution has paid its membership dues, you will have access to the online member database—which is one of the key benefits of membership.

Is there is a member discount for events and products?

Yes, there are member discounts available for ARTBA events, training and products.  The online ARTBA Store lists the member/non-member rate.

Are there different levels of membership?

No.  Once a firm joins, it is an equal member for all association activities.  There are no “regular” vs. “associate” membership levels.
