TDA Annual Meeting

September 20th
Madison Marriott West

Thank you for your support. Together, we have made Wisconsin transportation and how we fund it a primary issue in the Capitol and around the state. This is important groundwork.

We need to build on our accomplishments and continue to make the case for responsible, sustainable transportation investment. Step-by-step and hand-in-hand, it’s how we get there.

Please attend this year’s annual meeting to recognize two outstanding leaders, reconnect with old friends, take stock of where we are and recommit to advancing the best in Wisconsin transportation.

You can register and pay online or mail in your registration form. Please register by September 15th.

 

TDA Fly-in to Washington, D.C.

27th Fly-in will be winging back in 2018. This year, TDA will focus a little closer to home.capitol

The TDA Fly-in is the perfect opportunity to bring Wisconsin transportation issues to our national representatives. Virtually every congressional office and both senate offices participate and look forward to this information exchange on key issues with Wisconsin’s transportation stakeholders. The two days in Washington, D.C. literally “fly by”, and participants are back in Wisconsin before they know it. It is a good, quick trip for busy schedules.

General Fly-in information
The fly-in contingent leaves Wisconsin in the morning of the first day. Upon arrival in Washington, D.C., participants attend an afternoon briefing session – typically legislators and experts on the national level bring attendees up-to-date on pressing federal transportation issues. In the evening there is a group reception and dinner, a perfect opportunity for networking. The speakers at the morning session on the second day delve deeper into the issues of concern to Wisconsin’s transportation community. Activities in Washington, D.C. culminate with the ever-popular small group office visits with Wisconsin’s congressional delegation. As a past Fly-in participant commented, “One of the most impressive things about the TDA Fly-in is looking at the attendee listing. It really is a who’s who in Wisconsin transportation.”

Thanks to all who participated in Turnout for Transportation Capitol Edition.  It was a great day.

Hundreds of frustrated citizens, business leaders and local officials descended on the Capitol to urge lawmakers to pass a long-term funding solution that improves Wisconsin’s transportation system.

View a short video highlighting the day.

 

 

In 2008, TDA began a new program – “modal weeks”. Each year, TDA will declare a “Transit Week”, “Rail Week”, “Ports Week” and “Aviation Week”. During each of these weeks, TDA will work with relevant stakeholders and the media to highlight for the public the vital role that each particular mode plays in Wisconsin’s transportation system and thus to its economy, safety and quality of life.
