Freight Transportation Stakeholders:
FHWA is planning the Talking Freight seminars for the remainder of 2014. We would like to hear directly from you regarding potential topics and speakers, so that we can continue to meet your needs.
If you have an idea for a topic, please send the topic and a brief description to Nicholas Kehoe ([log in to unmask]) and Chip Millard ([log in to unmask]).
If you have suggestions for presenters, please send names and contact information if available.
If you've never participated in Talking Freight and want to learn more, please visit http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/FPD/talking_freight/index.htm.
On this page you can also register for upcoming seminars. FHWA's Office of Freight Management and Operations and the Office of Planning host the Talking Freight seminars. The seminars are part of a broader Freight Professional Development Program aimed at
providing technical assistance, training, tools, and information to help the freight and planning workforce meet the transportation challenges of tomorrow.
Seminars are held via web conference. This format allows for extensive participation of freight stakeholders from across the country. Through the use of web conferencing, participants can view the speakers' presentations on their personal
computer and hear the audio portion of the presentation by dialing into the assigned teleconference number or by listening through your computer speakers. The seminars are typically held on the third Wednesday of each month from 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET and are open
at no cost to all interested parties in both the public and private sectors.
Talking Freight Seminars are eligible for AICP Certification Maintenance credits. Each seminar is worth 1.5 credits. In order to receive credit you must attend the full seminar and either login with your full first and last name, or type
your full name into the chat box if you are attending with a group of people. To learn more about AICP Certification Maintenance, please visit http://www.planning.org/cm/.
We hope you continue to participate in Talking Freight, and if you have not yet attended a seminar we encourage you to register to learn information that will be of professional and possibly personal interest to you. Thank you for your
