2020 Annual AASHTO NTPEP In-Person Meeting: Cancelled (All Sessions Will be Conducted Virtually)
After careful consideration, the difficult decision has been made to cancel AASHTO's 2020 NTPEP Meeting scheduled to begin on June 14 through June 18, in Columbus, Ohio. The health and safety of our members, attendees, volunteers, staff and our host community is of utmost importance to AASHTO. Given the current environment and projected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel this is the right thing to do.
All sessions included on the original meeting agenda will be held through ZOOM. These sessions will be held June 15th through June 26th. An agenda, listing the time and date for each session, will be included on the new registration site. If you are interested in participating in these sessions, you will need to register for each session you plan to attend. A registration link will be sent to within the next couple weeks. The registration link will also be available on the NTPEP website. After completing registration to participate in these ZOOM sessions, you will receive an email with the credentials you will use to log into the session you registered for.
We regret having to make this decision, as the NTPEP Meeting has a long tradition of great opportunities for collaboration, information sharing, and relationship building within the State DOT community. We at AASHTO look forward to the next time we can resume that tradition.
Detailed information on AASHTO's cancellation policy can be found on this page. If you have any questions, please contact AASHTO's Director, Meeting & Member Services, Monica Russell.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.
