Owners Council

The ARTBA P3 Owners Council (P3OC) is a peer group of public officials from state and local transportation agencies who share information, best practices and experience about transportation P3s on an ongoing basis. The group includes representatives of DOTs with significant involvement in P3 projects, as well those with emerging P3 programs and others exploring the viability of P3s and enabling legislation in their states.

ARTBA serves as the platform for the P3OC’s activities through its P3 Division, which has functioned as a key policymaking and networking venue in the P3 sector for more than 25 years. ARTBA has also counted public officials in its membership ranks since its founding in 1902. In supporting the P3OC’s activities, provides a full range of member services including information technology, meeting management and networking with its membership across the transportation design and construction industry.


P3OC membership is limited to representatives of public sector owner-agencies. Its activities and proceedings are also limited to P3OC members, although the council will occasionally arrange opportunities to interact with federal agency counterparts and/or private sector members of ARTBA’s P3 Division for specific purposes.

To participate in the P3OC, a government official must be a member of ARTBA’s Transportation Officials Division. In 2018, the annual dues are $210 per agency executive, or $1,000 for five or more executives from the same agency.

Benefits for P3OC Members

  • Complimentary registration (a $250 value) to ARTBA’s Annual P3s in Transportation Conference in Washington, D.C. (July 18-20, 2018), the nation’s longest-standing and premier event in the transportation P3 space. The agenda will include a private P3OC “owners-only” meeting.
  • Additional face-to-face meetings during the year, generally coinciding with major transportation policy events that a number of owner-representatives already plan to attend.
  • On-line communities exclusive and accessible only to P3OC members, including a collaboration portal and on-line archive for sharing of key documents such as RFIs and contracts. ARTBA will provide the necessary secure platform for these activities.
