What We Do

TransComm is an active group of transportation communications professionals with a variety of webinars, presentations, the annual skills contest, and annual meeting. Check out our past webinars, sign up for an upcoming webinar or join us for our Annual Meeting.

Annual Skills Contest

The Skills Contest is conducted annually by the AASHTO Committee on Transportation Communication to recognize the outstanding work of its public relations practitioners and facilitate an exchange of ideas. The contest is considered the premier competition in the transportation industry and the awards have become a standard of public relations excellence among state departments of transportation. Winners demonstrate the very best examples of innovation, planning, production, execution, and evaluation of results and budget.

Annual Meeting

The annual TransComm 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.


A host of resources and information developed by TransComm and AASHTO is available to TransComm members and the broader transportation industry.
