Dear KPTA Members:

The 2018 KPTA/KYTC Fall Mini Conference was held in beautiful Owensboro, KY. On the banks of Ohio River, October 22-24, 2018.  All enjoyed the training and the entertainment was delightful.  I want to thank Shirley Cummins of RTEC who has been the Chairperson of our Mini Conference ever since we started it several years ago of a  superb job in putting the Conference together.  I also want to thank Dan Lanham of GRITS for hosting the conference, Mr. Eric Perez, Exec. Dir. Of OTD for his assistance in providing RTAP funding and for providing in valuable training.  Finally I want to thank Rick Jacobs of Braun, Dr. Greg Elam of National Toxicology and Mr. Michael Redington of USDOT Volpe Center for their wonderful training sessions.

It’s the fall and before you know it winter will be here and it will be time for the Kentucky General Assembly to convene in January.  I am encouraging every member to contact there legislature and ask them to support the Kentucky Infrastructure funding initiative that supports a long-term, sustainable funding approach that provides adequate revenues for all modes of transportation-so we can maintain what we have and build what we need to compete.

As always, I want to thank the membership for their ongoing support of KPTA.
