Basso With stimulus funds still coming out and Highway Bill Re-authorization looming, what chamber is not focused on transportation infrastructure these days?  Transportation is certainly a hot issue and ACCE is bringing in one of the best speakers available to the Annual Convention in Raleigh this summer... Jack Basso, Chief Operating Officer for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).

Basso is the featured guest speaker for the "Future of Infrastructure" workshop, scheduled for Friday, July 31 at 9:45 am.  His presentation will provide a broad outlook on the administration's transportation and infrastructure priorities, and will address questions about stimulus spending, public private partnerships, local funding mechanisms, and more.

Jack Basso oversees the management of a AASHTO and develops new member services, and markets current technical services provided for AASHTO members.  Prior to joining AASHTO, Mr. Basso served as Assistant Secretary for Budget and Programs and as CFO of the US DOT where he oversaw the development of a $60 billion budget and interacted with senior officials, members of congress and key industry officials on transportation matters.

AASHTO is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. It represents all five transportation modes: air, highways, public transportation, rail, and water. Its primary goal is to foster the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system.
