The 2nd Annual “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” a signature program of the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC), on July 15 brought together over 100 transportation investment champions from 28 states under one roof 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. The workshop featured an interactive session where attendees discussed their own real-world campaign challenges and shared advice on how to overcome them. Additionally, ARTBA Chief Economist Dr. Alison Premo Black provided a comprehensive report on state and local transportation funding trends. Among the other key “Express Learning” sessions:
