Join ATSSA’s Midyear Meeting in Rhode Island

Advance roadway safety and beat the heat in New England, Aug. 23-26

Join roadway safety professionals for ATSSA’s Midyear Meeting to help shape policies and initiatives for the roadway safety infrastructure industry for the coming year.

Network with more than 350 industry professionals from across the country who are gathering in Providence, R.I., to further innovation and infrastructure for roadway safety, Aug. 23-26.

The meeting will be held at the Omni Providence Hotel and is tailored to national committee members and friends to learn, network and build leadership skills.

“These meetings are critical to the work of our Association,” said ATSSA President & CEO Stacy Tetschner. “We lay the groundwork for many efforts and innovations for advancing roadway safety at our committee and council meetings. We were pleased by last year’s record-breaking attendance of 381 and hope to exceed that this year as we work to develop roadway safety plans that utilize the funding approved in the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act.”

Registration is free for ATSSA committee and council members but is required so register now. Public agency and department of transportation (DOT) employees who are ATSSA members also register for free and should request the discount code from meetings@atssa.com if they are not also a committee or council member.

Reserve hotel rooms within the ATSSA room block online or by calling 401-598-8000 by Aug. 5.

The Midyear Meeting includes an ATSS Foundation Fundraiser on Aug. 24 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The fundraiser is hosted by the New England ATSSA Chapter with New England Highway Technologies as title sponsor.

Purchase fundraiser tickets during registration ($60 advance, $75 onsite) and enjoy a New England-style dinner, games, prize drawings and entertainment from Stone Shakers, the group that won ATSSA’s Battle of the Bands contest in 2021.

“The ATSS Foundation appreciates the work of the New England ATSSA Chapter in organizing this fundraiser, which supports Foundation programs including the Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship, Chuck Bailey Scholarship, the National Work Zone Memorial and our youth activity book,” said Foundation Director Lori Diaz. “The Squantum Association facility is beautiful, historic and overlooks Narragansett Bay, providing a wonderful setting for the evening’s activities.”
