Over the last few years, the Illinois Road & Transportation Builders Association’s Board of Directors has achieved its goal to increase member involvement on IRTBA committees. Active interest by the membership to participate on association committees has increased two-fold. As a committee-driven organization with a membership that remains rich in talent, we continue to remain the voice of the transportation design and construction industry in Illinois. With almost 50 committees and subcommittees to choose from, members may have the opportunity to meet with agency heads and fellow members to give input on important policy decisions, agency specifications, develop ‘best practices’, network, and more, to aid industry and ultimately their own businesses.
While we value your involvement, it comes with the responsibility to be present as the committees move forward with their missions and agendas. Merely signing up, not attending, or not actively participating in the discussion does neither your company nor the industry any good. By serving on some of these committees, you and your staff will be able to maximize your membership in the Association and your relationships with state and local agencies. We look forward to your input into these many areas and know that collectively we can accomplish great things for the transportation industry.
