In cooperation with PennDOT and the PA Turnpike Commission, APC has developed a special training initiative designed to help the PA Transportation Construction Industry’s emerging leaders build purposeful relationships and skills to help them succeed.

Construction partnering will take center stage at the conference. The process of creating a cooperative team project environment between key project stakeholders will be explored as a positive communications tool that eliminates surprises and adversarial relationships.

The curriculum will also take an inside look inside the APC structure and offer a basic introduction to our other state associations – PAPA, PACA and ACPA/PA Chapter. Participants will learn how becoming involved in a professional association can further their careers while contributing to the betterment of their Industry as a whole.
