11th Annual (and Greatest)
What You Need to Know About Transportation
Program and Reception
September 30, 2015

The Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance is proud to announce its:

11th Annual What You Need to Know about Transportation Seminar
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
4:45 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.
Fairview Park Marriott
3111 Fairview Park Drive, Falls Church, VA 22042
This year's event will explore the Link Between Our Regional Security and Key Transportation Investments. The program will include presentations from key regional transportation officials and feature keynote speaker:

Andrew H. Card, Jr.
Former, U.S. Secretary of Transportation
White House Chief of Staff
While deteriorating roads, bridges and transit systems cause delays which negatively impact our quality of life and create regional economic challenges, the clogged, aging and inadequate transportation network also presents a major security threat to the National Capital region.
Mr. Card brings an important new perspective on the necessity of investing in big picture transportation projects for economic and homeland security purposes and sets the table for a discussion among regional transportation officials and business leaders.
To date, our panel includes: 
  • The Honorable Jim LeMunyon - Delegate, Virginia General Assembly
  • The Honorable Martin Nohe - NV Transportation Authority Chairman
  • Norman Whitaker - VDOT Northern Virginia District Planning Manager
  • Jack Requa - WMATA Interim GM/CEO
Ticket prices are $50 for Alliance supporters; $75 for the general public. A limited number of discounted tickets are available for Transportation and Public Policy students. For more information contact the Alliance:
