Professional Development

TransComm offers many opportunities for professional development including the subcommittee’s annual meeting, the annual skills development contest and a monthly webinar series.

Annual Meeting

The TransComm annual meeting brings together public relations professionals from the 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia departments of transportation, along with our consultant partners, representatives of the U.S. DOT and others interested in communicating transportation topics.

The TransComm Annual meeting is an opportunity for transportation communicators from around the United States to build relationships that benefit their state DOTs, highlight successes, share ideas and learn from each other. In addition, much of the subcommittee’s business is carried out during the meeting.
