TRB Offers Curated Programs

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is keeping pace with the current trend of offering curated programs, which are typically customized and grouped by interest categories.

Ahead of its 98th annual meeting, TRB has assembled a sample of curated progams to help newcomers and veteran attendees navigate the premier transportation research and technology event this year. 

In addition to these sample program suggestions, TRB is offering an interactive program, also to help registered guests find and prioritize program content.  Click here for more information.

ACPA Staff Focus on Technical and Trade Events


Two focal points for ACPA staff (as well as many members and Chapter/State affiliates) are the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB’s) 96th Annual Meeting and World of Concrete 2017. 

Both events are headliners for January, with the TRB meeting starting yesterday and World of Concrete starting next Monday.  ACPA’s 2017 Chairperson Lori Tiefenthaler (Lehigh Hanson, Inc.) will play a key role at both events.   

At TRB in Washington, D.C., ACPA staff will participate in many of the research and technology presentations, gleaning from them some of the latest developments in transportation construction research, while also looking for opportunities to both apply some of those findings and participate in discussions that impact ACPA members and our agency/owner customers.  Along with Chairperson Tiefenthaler, ACPA’s Jerry Voigt, Leif Wathne, Gary Mitchell, and Eric Ferrebee are participating in the week’s events, which iniclude various technical forums, as well as meetings with key agency officials.  

One highlight of the TRB meeting is the annual ACPA/TRB Annual Reception, which is being held this evening.   The event allows transportation-research officials, customer contacts with state DOT’s, and industry to meet in an informal, relaxed setting to discuss current and emerging issues of relevance to the concrete pavement industry, as well as agencies/owners.

Sponsorship Program Gains Strong Support

A new approach to sponsoring popular ACPA events has gained the support of members, allies, and Chapter/State affiliates.   Unveiled in early August, the program allows sponsors to select one or more popular events, including the ACPA Annual Meeting (November 29 through December 1); the ACPA Reception at the 96th Annual Transportation Board Meeting (January 9); and the ACPA Mid-Year Meeting (date and location to be determined).

The new program offers options for year-round recognition and brand access, along with other benefits that enhance customer relationships and provide added visibility at major industry events.   The new program is also designed to help members, allies, and affiliates with year round visibility.
