The ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation’s (ARTBA-TDF) Young Executive Development Program (YEDP) is designed to develop future transportation design and construction industry leaders. The program gives top young executives an intensive introduction to the legislative and regulatory processes that affect the industry. The curriculum features sessions on highway/transit financing, economics, environmental, regulatory and legal issues, public-private partnerships and industry innovation. Participants are introduced to the role of trade associations in the policy-making process and how leadership in their trade association can benefit their industry, and their careers. The program is purposely held in conjunction with the ARTBA Federal Issues Program and Transportation Construction Coalition’s Fly-In so that participants have the opportunity to meet with their congressional delegation about pending transportation issues.
