Membership Divisions

ARTBA is a federation of eight divisions representing the public and private sectors of the transportation design and construction industry.  Our structure provides a dynamic forum for the promotion of business development opportunities for members, and industry-wide discussions and policy development.

The Divisions

  • Meet at least two times a year, including at the ARTBA Federal Issues Program and the National Convention. The Traffic Safety Industry Division meets at the National Convention and twice in conjunction with the January and June meetings of the AASHTO Traffic Engineers Committee and the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
  • Conduct regular Infostructure™ educational webinars to keep informed on environmental issues and regulations, safety, contract administration, P3s, project delivery, economic trends and market conditions, and legal matters.
  • Host events to meet the needs of the respective members such as the Annual Public-Private Partnerships in Transportation Conference, the Planning & Design Division events at the AASHTO Regional Meetings, and the Transportation Officials Division-sponsored “Local Transportation Management & Safety Virtual Conference” (LoTrans™).
  • Hold regular conference calls to receive federal legislative and regulatory updates, and gather intelligence about market conditions.
  • Provide opportunities to connect with peers and partners to develop relationships that lead to new business partnerships.

They also offer meaningful business development and networking opportunities during the annual regional meetings.

The Regional Leadership Teams:

  • Host quarterly conference calls, which feature a presentation from an industry leader or local transportation official.
  • Have at least one joint call every year with the other regions.
