Online - Course
The RMC planning committee recognizes that many of our local and state roadway agencies are facing travel restrictions and tightening budgets as a result of the COVID-19 virus. With this in mind, the 2020 RMC will be held in a virtual format, on a smaller scale, instead of the on-site conference originally planned for October in Charlottesville, VA.
This event is also being offered free-of-charge. However, pre-registration is required. The RMC Planning Committee also asks that if you register but are unable to attend, please email and let us know! If we have a wait-list, this will allow us to accommodate other attendees, and also, it’s just the professional thing to do.
A few of the topics on the agenda include: Fundamentals of Pavement Preservation, Quality Construction Practices of Micro-Surfacing and Chip Seals, Using Drones, and Winter Maintenance. Please visit the conference website for more information.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you or your staff to attend the RMC! It doesn’t get much better than relevant topics for road and street departments, offered free-of-charge, no out-of-state travel, and the opportunity to interact with your peers from other states! So, come check out the virtual RMC!
Target Audience: Practitioners who manage, design, construct, and maintain state, county, and municipal roads and streets. The RMC is designed to help these practitioners prepare for and successfully address public works transportation challenges using proven and innovative methods.
