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!

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.

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.
