ARTBA’s P3 Awards Program is an annual competition to honor and draw attention to individuals, companies and public agencies that demonstrate outstanding achievement in the establishment and delivery of U.S. transportation P3 projects. The competition is structured into two categories:

P3 Champion of the Year: This award is given to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the forward progress of P3s in the U.S. transportation industry.

P3 Project of the Year: This award spotlights a project that demonstrates the value P3s bring to the U.S. transportation construction industry. All firms and/or agencies that played a significant role in the nominated project should be cited in the application. The award itself is given to the entire project team. Winners may purchase additional trophies for project partners if they so desire.

The 2018 nomination deadline has passed. Check back for information on submitting nominations for our 2019 awards program!

View more details on eligibility and submission guidelines. View a list of the past winners.

For the second year, ARTBA’s P3 Conference will welcome the next generation of P3 leaders through its professional development half-day track! Last year’s inaugural track was a huge success and ARTBA is excited for emerging leaders to participate in the 2018 edition of the premier annual event for transportation P3s.

Whether you’re just starting out in the P3 sector, have been working in it for years, or are just interested in learning more, this half-day track offers an excellent opportunity to network and hear insights from P3-oriented peers and executives, and join discussions on technology deployment, project team-building, and other pertinent industry issues.

The half-day track includes a mentorship breakfast, two panel sessions, a networking coffee break, and an interactive town-hall discussion, as well as a special luncheon for half-day participants, all on Friday, July 20.

The registration cost also includes an invitation to the P3 Conference’s Networking Reception taking place the previous evening, Thursday, July 19, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency.

Additional information about the program – including speakers and panelists – will be announced soon.

Please contact ARTBA’s Allison Rose with any questions.

SPACE IS LIMITED so register now!

Friday, July 20
7:30 – 8 a.m.Mentoring Breakfast: Emerging leaders will meet informally with senior executives in the industry for an informal discussion.
8 – 9 a.m.Panel Session – Leveraging Technology Advancements: New technology applications in the surface transportation space are quickly emerging. This panel will explore these technologies and how they might impact the assessment of and investment in long-term P3 agreements, and even the very nature of public-private partnerships.
Moderator:

Mariana Torres Montoya, Louis Berger


Panelists:

Jeff Marootian, District Department of Transportation


David Cuneo, Steer Davies Gleave


Samrat Valini, Transurban


Oscar Bode, Smart City Capital


9 – 10 a.m.Panel Session – Diversifying the P3 Project Team: The P3 transportation sector is at the intersection of many diverse disciplines, including finance, law, engineering, and policy. This panel will take the perspective of emerging leaders and focus on ways to create diverse teams – from age, gender, ethnicity and experience – that foster greater collaboration within the industry and different points of view to P3 projects.
Moderator:

Kat Sadeghi, AECOM


Panelists:

Denise Berger, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey


Brent Butzin, Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell LLP


Sue Lee, EY


10 – 10:15 a.m.Networking Coffee Break: Emerging leaders will join other conference attendees for an informal break.
10:15 – 11:30 a.m.Interactive Town Hall Discussion: The closing town hall session is another P3 Conference favorite, featuring an interactive format that includes audience response using your smartphone. 30 years from the “beginning” of U.S. P3s, great progress has been made – sort of. Landmark P3 projects can be found around the country today, including I-595, LBJ, Eagle P3, LaGuardia Terminal and I-66. Some states have made great advances – only to fall back a bit. Other owners have emerged with key projects. Legislation is being debated – sometimes passed, sometimes not – in many statehouses across the country. The embrace of the P3 approach in the U.S. is slow, with many owners doing just one or two projects. Let’s look at where we have been, where we are, and then dust off our crystal ball to see where we might be headed – and more importantly – what else we can do as a P3 community to help. Our “all-star” panel of public owners will help guide the discussion.
Moderator:

Steve DeWitt, ACS


Panelists:

Kome Ajise, Southern California Association of Governments


Morteza Farajian, Virginia Office of P3s


Nick Farber, Colorado DOT


Joshua Schank, LA Metro


11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.Emerging Leaders Luncheon: This luncheon is the culmination of the day and co-hosted by the Young Professionals in Infrastructure. This interactive session will challenge participants to think outside the box in an activity led by Roy Kienitz, Principle at WSP and former Under Secretary for Policy at the United States Department of Transportation. Prizes will be awarded! We will wrap up the day with closing remarks by Tyler Duvall, Partner at McKinsey & Company.

5th Annual “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates”
Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Hyatt Regency Washington | Washington, D.C.

The “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” a signature program of the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC), brings together transportation investment champions from around the country to share best practices, playbook secrets and other keys to success in advancing state and local legislative and ballot initiatives that boost transportation infrastructure investment.

Attend the Workshop to hear the real-life challenges and success stories of state transportation funding campaigns. Learn what states have raised or are trying to raise new transportation revenue, why they are doing so, what revenue streams they are exploring, who the major players are, and campaign tactics and strategies.

Be part of the conversation! Attendees will leave the Workshop with new skills and strategies for increasing funding in their own states.

Visit the ARTBA-TIAC Workshop page for updates on speakers, session topics, and more.

Registration is free for ARTBA’s P3 Conference Attendees!

Indicate your plan to attend on the registration form for the P3 conference, or email TIAC Deputy Director Carolyn Kramer for more information or to sign up.
