The national conference will emphasize the need for partnering; highlight the top two or three state of the art partnering practices; and, showcase how these recognized leaders are supporting and advancing the use of partnering on highway construction projects. The sessions will provide a forum for participants to share their experiences “lessons learned” and identify opportunities for advancement. Copies of all supporting materials, documenting best practices on the current state of the art in partnering nationally, and conference proceedings will be collected and made available nationally on the NDOT website with a link here and on the FHWA Construction website.

This is going to be an exciting conference from across industry.  Special key note speakers from FHWA – Headquarters, NDOT and Industry.  There will be time to Learn, Share and Network about our continuing efforts to embrace, engage and energize (3E’s) Partnering.
