ARTBA Foundation Seeks Nominations for the 2020 Transportation Development Hall of Fame Class
(WASHINGTON)—The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Transportation Development Hall of Fame. Launched in 2010, the Hall “honors individuals or families from the public and private sectors who have made extraordinary contributions to U.S. transportation development during their careers.”
Nominees are considered in two categories:
- Transportation Design & Construction Industry Innovators: Honors the men and women who discovered or created a “game changing” product or process that significantly advanced transportation design, construction and/or safety. It seeks to honor the original
- Transportation Design & Construction Industry Leaders (Individuals or Families): Recognizes men, women and families who have made significant contributions—beyond just having successful businesses or careers—that have notably helped advance the interests and image of the transportation design, construction and safety industry.
Nomination forms must be received by close of business Wednesday, April 1.
Anyone can nominate a candidate. ARTBA membership is not required. Individuals can be living or inducted to the Hall posthumously. The selection process is extremely competitive, and only a very limited number of individuals will be inducted annually.
A committee of judges that includes industry journalists will select the inductees. Two-thirds of the committee must vote in favor of a nominee’s induction.
Winners will be honored at a special dinner in May that takes place in the Nation’s Capital during ARTBA’s Federal Issues Program.
Established in 1985, the ARTBA Foundation is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt entity designed to “promote research, education and public awareness” about the impacts of transportation investment. It supports an array of initiatives, including educational scholarships, awards, management and education programs, roadway work zone safety training, special economic research and reports, American National Standards Institute-accredited transportation project safety certification, and an exhibition on transportation at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
