The NADO Research Foundation and RPO America are pleased to announce the award application period is open for the 2017 Excellence in Regional Transportation Awards. The application deadline is March 17, 2017. See examples of last year’s projects under the Transportation category on the 2016 NADO Awards Story Map here.
The Excellence Awards program is open to all NADO members, including associate members. The program is a great way to gain recognition for your region’s efforts to improve transportation through planning, projects, and service delivery. Winners are often highlighted in NADO publications and at NADO events, and they receive a press release and awards photo to promote the award in their own newsletters, with local media, and on social media.
The 2017 Excellence Award winners will be recognized at a special reception at the National Regional Transportation Conference, occurring June 28 – 30 in Denver, CO. Award winners might also be highlighted in other awards materials and events. This year’s conference will feature training on linking transportation planning and economic development, as well as many other topics. There will also be programmed time for facilitated peer exchange. The conference should be an exciting opportunity to learn from peers and outside experts.
