Planes, Trains and Automobiles — TRB 2015
ACC
My brain is full. So many interesting sessions, presentations and people to meet at TRB 2015 – held for the first time at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. I do miss the chance meetings of aviation colleagues in the corridors of the Omni Shoreham, but I was able to meet former workmates from other industries I had not seen in decades and my colleagues from WTS. I was pleased with the TRB App, an environmentally-friendly solution that made it possible to narrow down the list of must-see presentations and all but replaced the need for the printed conference guide.

ACC member firms were well represented, speaking on topics as diverse as:
  • “Your Neighborhood Spaceport”
  • “The Envision Sustainability Rating System for infrastructure”
  • “Tools for Calculating Airport Contributions to State’s Implementation Plans”
  • “Unmanned Aerial Systems”
  • “Transportation Asset Management”
  • “Non-Traditional Relationships and Non-Aeronautical Land Use: Leveraging the Airport for Economic Development”
  • “The Latest In General Aviation Systems Planning”; and
  • “Funding Shortfalls and New Mechanisms to Address Changing Aviation Financial Dynamics”
