Robin Carpenter, Program Manager for the Virginia Local Technical Assistance Program (VA LTAP) in the Center for Transportation Studies, played a key role in the planning and implementation of the 2021 Roadway Management Conference (RMC) in Rehoboth Beach, DE this week.
Collaborating with her LTAP peers in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware, Robin assisted with conference logistics, catering and the marketing campaign to state and local agency transportation professionals across the Commonwealth of Virginia. During the conference she moderated multiple breakout sessions, coordinated the welcome reception and assisted with registering almost 200 attendees.
The VA LTAP invited and sponsored two of the conference speakers: Amanda Hamm, program manager of the Connected and Automated Vehicle Program at VDOT, and Lou Hatter, communications manager for VDOT’s Culpeper District. Robin, Amanda, Lou and LTAP Education & Outreach Assistant, Cate Robbins, worked together to represent team Virginia. The Roadway Management Conference brings together hundreds of roadway practitioners from Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware every year. It is designed to help these practitioners prepare for, and successfully address, public works transportation challenges using proven and innovative methods.
