Regional Leadership Teams
The ARTBA Regional Leadership Teams provide member firms the opportunity to get their colleagues involved from their offices around the country. These teams provide excellent market and government affairs information—focusing on the state and federal levels. They also offer meaningful business development and networking opportunities during the annual regional meetings.
The Regional Leadership Teams:
- Host quarterly conference calls, which feature a presentation from an industry leader or local transportation official.
- Have at least one joint call every year with the other regions.
- Conduct annual meetings in each respective region to receive a legislative and regulatory update, gather intelligence on local transportation construction market conditions, and discuss state/local transportation issues and projects.
