Save the Date: FTA’s 2020 Transit Asset Management (TAM) Roundtable

When: July 12, 2020
Where: Boston, MA

The 2020 TAM Roundtable will be held in conjunction with TRB's 13th National Conference on Transportation Asset Management, which will take place July 11-14, 2020 in Boston. FTA hosts an annual roundtable to bring together participants from across the country who are directly involved in the management of transit capital assets. It provides an excellent opportunity for your agency to learn from the experience of other practitioners and also pass on TAM successes to help others.

This year's roundtable will be condensed to one day to coincide with the TRB conference. TRB will include a transit track, and we encourage all who are able to attend both conferences.

Bookmark and continue to check the Eventbrite site. It will be kept up to date with the latest conference information, including how to register and details about the agenda as it is developed.

Audience: Transit agency staff, State DOT, and MPO staff focused on transit. The roundtable is open to public sector employees only.
Date: Sunday, July 12, 2020
Time: 8:30am-5:00pm

If you are planning to attend the roundtable, please register no later than June 12, 2020. Given the space limitations, please only register after you receive official travel approval from your agency.

If you have suggestions for discussion topics or would like to request to add someone to the waiting list, please contact TAMRoundtable@dot.gov.
