Looking for information on the next National Rural Transportation Peer Learning Conference?

We are still finalizing details for the next National Rural Transportation Peer Learning Conference, to occur in spring or early summer of 2016.  We hope to announce the date and location soon.  To make sure you hear about the conference, please sign up for our Rural Transportation mailing list.

To suggest a session topic you would like to learn about, or to share a topic you'd like to offer a presentation on, please contact NADO Associate Director Carrie Kissel at ckissel@nado.org or 202.624.8829.  As always, the session content will focus on regional planning topics for rural and small metro regions across the U.S.  Most panelists will be regional planning staff; their partners in federal, state, or local agencies; consultants who have worked with RTPOs or MPOs on a project to share as a noteworthy practice; and other experts.

We look forward to seeing you in 2016!

2014 National Rural Transportation Conference

This annual event provides peer-to-peer learning for regional transportation planners, state DOT representatives, and their partners. The conference will provide training and networking opportunities on a variety of rural and small metropolitan transportation topics. View the 2014 conference program (PDF).

With hands-on workshops, best practice panels, and facilitated networking sessions that feature peer trainers and expert speakers, the conference will offer training for organizations and individuals just beginning to work in transportation, as well as those with more experience.

Implementing MAP-21 will continue to be a conference theme, as it was last year. Workshop and session topics are expected to include some of the following: economic development, land use and transportation, technology and productivity for planning organizations, engaging the public, the role of and local officials, transportation funding, and more technical and policy-oriented sessions.
