NSSGA was joined by the American Concrete Pavement Association and Portland Cement Association as affiliates of Infrastructure Week 2017. Under a "Time to Build" theme, the May 15-19 event saw public and private entities engage in education, advocacy and social media activities to a) support roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, and the energy grid; and, b) encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous and safe.
The program kicked off at U.S. Chamber of Commerce headquarters in Washington, D.C., with panel discussions, presentations, and keynotes exploring the critical role infrastructure plays in the nation's economy. The speaker roster underscored the broad range of stakeholders, and had among headliners Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao; American Society of Civil Engineers President Norma Jean Mattei; Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers CEOs Tom Donohue and Jay Timmons; and, AFL-CIO and North America's Building Trades Unions Presidents Richard Trumka and Sean Garvey.
Infrastructure Week Steering Committee members invite companies and organizations with stakes in transportation, environmental and power infrastructure to sign on as affiliates.--www.infrastructureweek.org
