“There is so much at stake with these funding issues. Politics is the process of making good policy, but the process is relational. This workshop provides an opportunity to build relationships and get better access to data and information.”  (Seth Millican, director of the Georgia Transportation Alliance)


“It was invaluable hearing from other states that had been successful in getting funding. It was also helpful hearing from those states that hadn’t been successful.” (Maria Fuentes, executive director of the Maine Better Transportation Association)

State transportation funding advocates agree—the “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates” is a valuable tool for building campaigns to increase state, county and local transportation revenue.

The 3rd Annual “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” a signature program of the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC), will be held July 13 in conjunction with ARTBA’s Public-Private Partnerships (P3) Conference at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The Workshop will feature several advocates sharing best practices and lessons learned from transportation funding campaigns throughout the country, and lawmakers giving advice on how to increase support in your state’s legislature. Other sessions will:

  • Highlight the latest research in transportation funding trends;
  • Discuss how policy characteristics and messaging can influence public support for raising the gas tax, and;
  • Share advice on promoting transportation funding and revenue initiatives to conservative audiences and building preemptive communication strategies.

TIAC is a first-of-its kind, dynamic education program and Internet-based information resource designed to help private citizens, legislators, organizations and businesses successfully grow transportation investment at the state and local levels through the legislative and ballot initiative processes.
