AASHTO Meeting Sponsorships

Much of AASHTO’s work is done by committees that specialist in key transportation issues. From safety to technology to design and construction, there are annual committee meetings that focus on policy development, legislative issues, training and development and professional leadership. These meetings provide a smaller, more interactive forum to meet with state member delegates. The sponsorship opportunities for the committee meetings are broken up into 3 tiers. Each tier has the same benefits and pricing for meetings of similar size. For more information on the Tiers and what they offer, go here.

AASHTO Program & Award Sponsorships

TRAC (Transportation and Civil Engineering) & RIDES (Roadways in Developing Elementary Students), AASHTO’s education outreach programs, are designed for use in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) classes. The hands-on activities introduce students in grades K-12 to the work world of transportation and civil engineering and inspire them to consider careers in those fields. Both programs are aligned with national standards and are currently being aligned with Core Curriculum Standards of Learning. State departments of transportation work with schools in their state by providing the curricula and resources for the schools and providing engineers to visit the classrooms to serve as speakers, teach a hands-on activity, and/or talk to students about the importance of math and science in preparing for their future. Becoming a sponsor of TRAC & RIDES shows your support in creating future Civil Engineers.
