Third Thursday Advocacy Jam: Fleet
September 17, 2020
2:30–3:30 p.m. CT
September currently looks to be a critical month for public works advocacy. As of this writing the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) legislation governing our nation’s federal surface transportation policy is set to expire on September 30. Additionally, Canada’s House of Commons is currently set to return from its summer break on September 21 and an economic update is anticipated. Please join the APWA Government Affairs team and volunteer leaders from the U.S. and Canada for an interactive discussion on these issues, as well as an overview of advocacy tools available to our members and the importance of member engagement. To best advocate for the priorities of our members, we want to hear the impact that surface transportation policy has on your community, what you want to see Parliament address in the upcoming session, and any other experiences or questions you would like to share. We look forward to hearing your thoughts – join the conversation!
Registration is FREE for Members and Non-Members. You can register for the entire year of programming or by each individual program.
