As a quick update – due to scheduling issues for some committee members planning to attend in person, we have decided to reschedule the ADD40 Committee Meeting (to be held at the ADC60 workshop on Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure in New York) from Monday, June 16TH at 3 PM to Tuesday, June 17th, 4 pm – 5 30 pm Eastern Time. Call in facilities will be available for those who can’t make it in person.
After considering several possible options, we have decided to conduct our mid-year meeting in conjunction with the Waste Management and Resource Efficiency (ADC60) committee’s summer workshop on Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure (http://www.trb-adc60.org/2014summer.html) in New York, June 16-19. In keeping with our committee’s tradition of holding mid-year meetings with different groups at TRB, this workshop provides an excellent opportunity for us to interact with yet another area within TRB.
Our committee meeting is scheduled for June 17, 4-5:30 pm ET, with call-in facilities available for those who can’t attend in person. Damon and I will send out an agenda and further details prior to the meeting. The main focus of the committee meeting will be to plan for our 2015 International Conference (scheduled for early May 2015 in Washington, D.C.).
We are very excited for the opportunity to participate in this workshop. Furthermore, in the spirit of collaboration, the workshop organizers have graciously agreed to slot in a couple of presentations from ADD40 members or friends. Currently, they have open slots on the “reuse and recycling” session and the “Deicer Issues” session. There is also room for one more complete session, if any of you have interest in putting together a panel.
If you are interested in attending and making a presentation on one of the above topics/putting together a panel, please contact Jennie Armstrong of the ADC60 committee [email protected] as soon as possible, and cc me and Damon so that we are in the loop.
If you are planning to attend, I encourage you to register as soon as possible at http://www.trb-adc60.org/2014summer.html. Hotel block and registration deadlines have been extended to mid-May.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or need further information.
