To this end we are currently working with EventMobi (the same vendor who has provided our conference App platform since 2016) to have the technology in place to provide attendees a great experience, and to meet our goal of disseminating technical information and hopefully have some fun doing it.
The technical course this year will Quality Assurance for paving projects and will be presented by Gerry Huber of Heritage Research.
The CTAA pre-conference workshop will include Regional Reports from the Directors on Green Initiatives across the country and will be followed up with Advances in Asphalt Technology related to the state of practice on Performance Testing.
The Contractors’ Workshop, expected to be held in its usual spot on Tuesday afternoon, will focus on In-Place recycling. This year’s technical program, as always, promises to deliver interesting and varied content. Abstracts of all the papers to be presented are included on the web site.
We are even looking at how to hold some social activities to allow the networking that is such an important part of the conference experience. How that will be accomplished remains to be seen but we are excited that there will be some valuable networking opportunities.
The Annual General Meeting will be held prior to the start of technical sessions.
A couple key questions to be addressed about a virtual conference are how many hours a day can participants remain engaged (we are thinking not more than about 4 hours), and how many days or weeks should the conference be spread over?
