It’s that time of year for our annual needs assessment survey! In order to make the most informed decisions about our 2022 activities, we ask that you please spend a few minutes of your valuable time answering these questions. Much of the survey asks about your preferences for future training delivery and also provides an opportunity to share with us ideas for new workshop topics. Surveys should be completed in the next two weeks. Your feedback is important to our planning process and is greatly appreciated.

Please continue to visit the website to see workshop availability for the remainder of 2021. We are offering a few trainings in person with limited capacity; most workshops will remain virtual for this year. In addition, the Federal Highway Administration and other partners have a number of webinars planned for the rest of the year- we will continue to share with members of our email list. If you would like to be added to the email list, please send a note to
