Communicators’ Group Seeks Proposals, Speakers for September Conference

TransComm, AASHTO's subcommittee for transportation communications, is seeking session proposals and speakers to fill out the agenda for its 2015 annual meeting, which will be held Sept. 13-16 in Annapolis, Md.


The meeting's theme, "Exploring the Transportation Conversation," will be a focal point of the annual gathering of about 200 communication specialists who focus on issues affecting state departments of transportation.

"TransComm's annual meeting is a key event for state DOT communication professionals interested in keeping abreast of the emerging industry trends, best practices and networking," said Lloyd Brown, AASHTO's director of communications.

"This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to meet others who face the very same challenges, and share experiences that help make you a more effective communicator," Brown said.

Meeting organizers are looking for session proposals for either general or breakout sessions. Hour-long general session topics should appeal to the entire conference audience. The breakout sessions are generally shorter and focus more on a specific communication skill set or practice, using case studies and best-practice examples.

Full details on submitting session proposals, as well as conference registration information, are available here.
