Learn why and how a record number of transportation investment initiatives have passed in 2015 at the 3rd Annual “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” being held July 13 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The Workshop, a signature program of ARTBA’s 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 legislative and ballot initiatives that boost transportation infrastructure investment.
This year’s 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.
Additionally, the “Transportation Investment Advocates Council” will hold their annual in-person meeting on Tuesday, July 12. The Council is a national network of more than 60 business professionals and public officials sharing of intelligence and “best practices”—campaign strategies, tactics, messaging, opinion and economic research, legislative and ballot language, “what’s worked and what hasn’t”—in order to help advocates meet their objectives.
