Infrastructure Week promotes transportation funding
Infrastructure groups and organizations across the country are currently celebrating Infrastructure Week from May 11-15, sponsored by affiliate organizations including the American Society of Engineers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Throughout the week, infrastructure professionals will receive a chance to meet with industry and political leaders to discuss the importance of investing in the United States’ infrastructure system.
Infrastructure Week will host a myriad of symposiums covering a wide range of topics. From clean energy to financing, attendees in Washington, DC will be able to join forums specific to their industry’s interest. Professionals unable to be in Washington for the week will have the opportunity to participate through various sessions either in major metropolitan cities like Chicago and New Orleans, or they may register for a free webinar via the Infrastructure Week’s website.
In addition to the professional development opportunities, Infrastructure Week will also host Infrastructure Advocacy Day tomorrow, May 13th. Advocates in Washington will meet with members of Congress and other policymakers to discuss infrastructure-related topics. Advocacy Day comes at an important time, as the Highway Trust Fund is in a precarious position. As funds are set to run out in July of this year, now is the time to let the federal government know how important federal highway funding is, not only for the infrastructure community, but the overall economy.
Are you planning to attend Infrastructure Week either at home or in the nation’s capital? Let us know in the comments.
